    I don't think this has been discussed, but then again TGR search...
    I'm going to give this a whirl this year (both as a driver and rider) - https://treadshare.com/. Hopefully it can be reliable, especially if a rider and on the return.
    There's also this one - https://www.caravancarpool.com/ - but doesn't seem as active.
    I always feel guilty pulling into a lot solo. Maybe one of these gets some real legs and helps some with traffic, parking, cost, climate, etc.

    just here to post that I drove up and down 70 a couple times last week of course I was headed the right direction on the right days at the right time so I slightly got rimmed but no total penetration

    tuesday I thought was gonna be ugly cause they were doing some rock work on g town hill but alas I made it right through around lunch time instead of texting and making phone calls while sitting in traffic as planned i had to do it while driving busines waits for no one

    observations

    I was the asshole driving like an asshole the other nite sorry i fI cut you off avg about 85 mph until the tunnel area where we slowed to 60 cause a skim of shit was on the road

    the cops have a new hidie hole about a mile past the east bound start of the express lane is a nook and suprise

    the semi trailer headed east going down mt vernon canyon doing 75 mph weaving unable to stay in their lane was scary as shit I backed the fuck off

    left laners WTF? serious wtf?

    coming out of the tunnel the other morning and keeping it real around 55 to 60 mph was good in the shit conditions but man it seems that if you have a rental car or a big truck 75 is aok do any of those big trucks have weight in the bed



    some

    has I-70 travel been smooth as a baby's bottom? remarkably little chatter here now that we're back into winter travel.

    no and yes whats the question?

    coming back up the hill sat nite it was stop and go east bound from bottom of gtown hill to the twin tunnels and heavy flow down mt vernon canyon so maybe that wasn't too bad? dumont was a disaster cause everyones app was telling them to take the frontange road from wanker park

    sat am seemed pretty mellow west bound

    Hey anyone know any good touring spots off 285? Surely there's some magical spot that gets 700" of snow a year with easy access and no avy danger that the other 5 million people on the Front Range haven't discovered yet.

    Georgia Pass is amazing if you like wind battered bulletproof snow. We've explored from Ute to Hoosier to Monarch Passes and it's all shit until spring upslopes. If it's empty its because we are pow snobs and it didn't meet our standards.

    I've skied around Whale Peak in spring -- some awesome lines back there. But a PITA access wise...wonder if you're allowed to BRAP it up around those parts?

    Ute is a weird zone. We've scored there in January, but I was expecting an old barbed wire fence to snag me.

    If you could get back by the Iron Fens, below Geneva Peak, I'd bet the skiing is pretty damn good.

    Back to i70, westbound toll lane should help on those dry Saturday mornings.

    WTF it's not snowing or windy and hasn't been for hours, 70 closed from Vail completely to Loveland. Can't even go through Leadville... I'd have to go to Fairplay.

    It opened and the road was basically dry. CDOT person confirmed that the problem was Eisenhower and CDOT closed everything else just to keep traffic from backing up. When closing VP because of Eisenhower, CSP needs to allow SC residents with snow tires past the closures as they wouldn't be contributing to any backups.

    somedays I think I need to be on FB just so I can feel the pulse of summit county I'm sure they make this thread seem pretty tame friends have showed me how they have been publicly shamed on one mans junk its pretty sad and funny at the same time lots of entitlement on there from what I been told

    was going to goto trailerthorne last night but skipped it when I found out 70 was closed didn't need to be part of that mess

    At least Silver Plume is yet to be discovered. Has good skiing one day every 10 years as well!
