    The dooshbag factor seems to be huge is it the drive and the lift lines that turn front rangers into assholes

    I had to run down to Golden this afternoon.. driving back up wasn't too bad.

    Did a Backcountry tour in my neighborhood this evening. Lots of wind.

    Maybe I'll ski a resort tomorrow. I kinda just wanna do some mindless lift served laps.

    Not quite I 70, but Im pretty sure this guy has shut it down in the past. I really wanted to help, but the rear end was flying all over the place, kind of like a decapitated snake. We just watched from the safety of a half ton truck until the lot attendant convinced him to drive backwards. Good advise if you ever find yourself driving a muscle car on a snow packed mountain pass.

    Left Abasin at 1225 and just caught Loveland pass before it closed. The reason it closed? Wasnt the roads which were pretty ok. It was the 3 minivans and MULTIPLE others without AWD and snow tires that got it closed. At least the civic in front of me had snow tires on...

    There was a sherriff at the bottom. Wouldn't that be an ideal place to do a check station and turn people around?

    I hope everyone who was stuck got a ticket.

    Surprisingly, no issues at all this weekend with I-70. I chose MuchosPixels' option #1.

    All the traffic and issues were sent to I25 to go to the NHL Outdoor game at Air Force Academy.
    Castle Rock to Falcon Stadium should be 40 minutes, reports it took 3.5-4.0 hrs. Lots of people missed most of the game.
    I guess they now understand what's its like to go skiing.....

    That sounded like a laughable clusterfuck. And they want to host the Olympics?!

    Good to know if there was an emergency, we can rely on our government and infrastructure to guide us to safety.

    Also had no issues on I70 yesterday. Found more powder than expected then got the fuck outta there. Im sure traffic will be awesome today.

    OFFICIAL I70 BITCH THREAD....

    Skied all three days of President’s Day weekend. All days were super fun, two were sleeper (ish) powder days. I drove back and forth from my home in Golden all three days. I only waited in traffic 33 minutes longer than “normal” spread out over all 6 commutes. FKNA.

    Oh wait sorry, this is the bitch thread. That construction near Idaho Springs is really brining me over, man.

    Edit to add the point of the post was simply echoing a couple other's slight surprise at how little I-70 sucked this weekend. I was prepared for bad traffic, congested parking, huge crowds, long lift lines, etc. I found none of that... just an enjoyable three days skiing good snow with friends. Carry on.

    Drove back and forth 3 times? That is fucking stupid.

    Ah that was harsh. I just don't get it, unless you drive to Loveland. Even then, not worth it IMO

    You don't have to get it, nor do you need to feel that it's worth it. Because I do, and I do... and I'm the one in the truck.
