    Looking for Colorado weekday backcountry buddies from now (April) til the snow's gone

    Hey, I'm a 28 year old ski patroller of 7 years. Avy 2. EMT. Somewhat accomplished mountaineer (So America, Canadian Rockies, Alps, etc)

    I'm not working til August and want to fill my week days with trips. I just want to hike up and ski down, with you. Crazy, mellow, anything. Give me a shout!

    I'm in. I'm a relative newcomer but I want to do some big spring missions and I can keep up. Completely flexible schedule May 13-June 1. We can do a mellow day, if it seems like it'll work out great, if not no worries.

    Have my eye on some lines near Salida. Going to be good for vehicle assist with the low snowpack. Can offer the spare bedroom to facilitate early starts. Looks like Indy pass will open May 21. Leave for Yrup the 23rd but would like to car ski that monday.

    Might end up in Denver for a few days mid-week for skiing during the week of May 28. Uncertain yet, but I'll reach out if it actually happens.
