    All those people are obviously heading up, looking for powder. 8:30am...they missed it. Why even bother sitting through that horseshit when thereís so much else to do than arrive at the mountain 2 hours later, take an hour to actually get on a lift then ski chopped up packed powder on yellow Rossi Soul 7s for a couple of hours then do it all in reverse, all while being sure to Instastory about how great your day was.

    I don't get it either but I don't want to see the day when all those folks finally figure it out and leave sooner.
    If we're gonna wear uniforms, we should all wear somethin' different!

    I don't do Saturdays. I will do Sunday if conditions are good and/or have friends up. Besides, I can generally find a few missed spots. Not as plentiful but reasonable trade-off. Glad they have fun though.

    6pm departure was perfect. No traffic to speak of, just a little busier than normal. Was snowing pretty good on Vail Pass. Now that I travel the western slope, I forget about the line of cars camped in left lane. They should be forced to listen to me complain about temperatures and lack of snow.

    Yo man, it's entirely possible that some of those PATHETIC LOSERS just wanna ski some mostly soft snow, and don't live and die based on whether or not they get first tracks, unlike the rest of us that have turned skiing off of the I70 corridor into a science. Lots of people like doing this shit 5x/year, lots of them probably have fun even when they blow it on the I70 optimization test.

    Is sharing a shitty Instasotry w/your pals/fam any better or worse than posting anonymously 5,000x on an internet message board for bored dentists? Different strokes and all that.

    I'm not trying to be the savior for #COgumby, but I can't stand the #radbro "core-er than you" attitude. /rant

    The problem is that the #COgumby is prolific and becoming ever more common. Personally I don't mind, I think the region is doing well because of an influx of new people. Its just when I can't avoid the #COgumby that it starts to bother me a bit.

    It feels more than just Colorado though, from what I can tell Instagram has ruined society. Been to Moab recently? All of the parks there just have swarms of people there doing it for the 'gram.

    While I don't think either #COgumby or #radbro is healthy, at least one of those requires some thought and effort put into it. While plenty of people fair just fine, it seems that there are plenty who vacation and move here that do not have a respect for the mountains.

    Really though its the crazy
    narcissistics posting unhinged selfies or slow-mo videos of them failing a one foot air on instagram that get me. Fucking go to Pennsylvania, with their photography skills it would look the same dammit.

    This is the catch all bitch about Colorado thread right? I'd love to have someone define the #radbro because I think is covers a lot of stereotypes. I've gotten to the point where I can accept and manage the crowds, what I can come to terms with in the johny come lately mountain cool guy.

    The real skiers? They are the one with the good attitude, stoke to be out. It's usually the dude who grew up in Arvada son of plumber and the family from Kearney with the 'Skers jackets on. The buzzkills are the consultants from Highlands Ranch with a condo in the mountains who do nothing but complain and take themselves way to seriously.

    The 14 year old double ejecting under the lift and claiming it is everything that's right with skiing.

    The 40 year old skiing the backcountry rig with out a scratch on it switching out his goggle lenses on the lift blaming his piss poor skiing on everything other than the fact that he is a piss poor skier is everything wrong with skiing.

    yup, real skiers are the ones not posting typologies of who's awesome and who's not regularly on ski websites.

    Reminds me of CB and Gunni. CB locals are mostly all nice a cheerful during the week, then the Gunni 9-5ers come on the weekend and are mostly assholes.

    Good point. City market trucks make runs at odd hours from what I have seen. Not always though.

    I was an I-70 day skier yesterday for the first time in forever. A teeny bit of traffic on the way up. On the way home, a little traffic near the Empire exit, then there was some super major accident near Genessee but google maps detoured me around it, so I lost maybe 5 minutes total.

    I don't know why you all complain so much.

    Now, the crowds at Wanker Park? Yeah, that's worth complaining about!

    Got a wtf for you all. Coming back from copper yesterday west on 70 prior to the Johnson tunnel. The lanes went from 3 lanes to 2 as normal merge area. Then they open up to 4 lanes at the metering lights just to have 2 cars released at once but alternating the lanes. Why spread out 2 lanes into 4 lanes for metering just to go back to 2 in the tunnel?

    Holiday crowds were nil today. Snowed most of the day.
    Thursday looks good for grilling.
