    Keystone night skiing....

    I was surprised by the amount of cars leaving Keystone at 5:45pm yesterday.

    But honestly, who knows. Maybe there are so many greenhorns that don't know how to I70?
    I guess I am wrong. I guess there are hordes of weekend warriors driving up mid-Sat, dropping hundreds on a room, skiing Sunday and then heading back at 2. Sounds awesome.

    My thought is that they slept in and left late, thinking they’d beat the traffic and get in a good afternoon of skiing...

    When all you want to accomplish is to get a $200 Instagram pic, does it matter when you hit the road?

    This time of year you can snap some sick shots right around the 3p sunset on mountain.

    OFFICIAL I70 BITCH THREAD....

    Slightly off 70, but this afternoon cops pulled over a Toyota Corolla at the bottom of Berthoud Pass about to drive over toward Empire on THREE wheels. Passenger side front wheel was rim only. I passed the car about an hour earlier just south of WP, driving 20mph with flashers on, sparks flying from the wheel. Definitely a good idea to drive Berthoud, then 70, without a tire, in the winter. Wow.

    That rim will dig, it'll turn like it's on rails. Cops probably pulled them over to say thank you for not running summer tires.

    I like leaving at 2pm on Saturday, spending the night, then heading back around 10am. I can get back and forth from hira to suco in less than 2 hours most of the time.

    EB Vail Pass closed. Saw that coming....it's snowing sideways right now.
    I used to hike 2 hours for 10 minutes of turns on 207 gs skis, without needing “skins” or “hike mode.” Tell me again how I’m a gaper.

    There was also a decent fender bender on my way down. Some car was facing down into the ravine but luckily a tree stopped it. Slick out there this am, and pretty cold.

    Or even simpler ... If month > 10 and month < 6, pass-status = "closed".

    Seriously however, I've been surprised the times it was open, when I would have thought it wouldn't have been.

    I still remember one drive - not because of traction, but rather visibility. Visibility was around 15-20 feet (driving it at 5mph and white-knuckling).

    A webcam check might have been useful. Still gotta use your smarts ;-)

    My buddy drove up about a half hour behind me and he used his GPS (not phone GPS) to help him figure out where the road was.

    I don't know where else to put this but be sure to catch the new AFW commercial where Jake Jabbs shows up in a DeLorean - complete with burning tire tracks and says something about prices that make you think you've gone "back in time"... LOL>
    If we're gonna wear uniforms, we should all wear somethin' different!
