    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.

    I will be in CO Feb 18-25 solo and would like to get out. I am from New England so don't know the terrain. Avy 1, pretty fit and experienced skier for 45 year old dude. I will not have a car but can pay for gas and sammiches.
    I don't have any plans during that period but would prefer BC to lift served. side country also good (i have an epic pass)
    My time window starts in Beaver Creek and has to end in Denver.
    hopefully something comes up. PMme

    I am working M-Thur. out of Golden for the next few weeks. I would like to meet up with some experienced/knowledgeable partners for backcountry skiing F-Sunday. I am in good shape, have Avy 2, received a 4.0 in the 400 level Snow Accumulation and Dynamics course at Montana State over 10 years ago (for whatever that is worth), and an above average skier.
