    Loveland Pass maybe a little suspect in places this weekend.

    Should be fine by this weekend. That was the day after new snow on a windloaded 36 degree slope. Kid is an arrogant prick that is loving all the attention he is getting for that video.

    Getting caught in slide, when conditions would suggest one would be probable, used to be a shameful experience...

    Must be a millennial thing.

    Which is why I posted. The natural progression is for someone to start a gofundme collection when his bad decisions catch up to him.

    He seemed to be pretty stoked on getting caught in an avy, so maybe this will be the one time that "he died doing what he loved" actually applies.

    I hate to be all "get off my lawny" but it seems like social media has caused a regression in the culture of safety. Ten years ago, people were just uneducated and going for it. Then awareness increased and knowing what you are doing became cool. Now, every person with a go pro is just a bad decision waiting to happen. I've actually had to integrate "what to do with technology" into my safety protocols. It is like some people think that they can ignore all the rules for safe travel they are supposed to follow in order to "get the footy".

    ...or maybe it is just a Loveland Pass thing. Boy that place sure does suck.

    Yup, glad GoPro and social media wasn't around back when we were doing all the same stupid shit 20 something years ago. But we learned, some the hard way. Lost a few friends in the process. I haven't skied much on the pass in the last 10 years, too many bad experiences, to much density of stupidity.

    The presence of testosterone in men goes up around women, and with social media you could assume men consider women to always be around in that sense, or that they are always 'performing' as though they are.
    So really, if we just get all women off social media the problem would go away for sure.

    Yeah, Loveland Pass does have that "Hold my beer and watch this," mentality to it.

    When I worked for CAIC Knox (the director of CAIC) had me handout the CAIC brochure that maps out the major avalanche areas of Loveland Pass. One day I was handing them out at the top of the pass, and one guy said to me, "you're just trying to keep us from the good stuff." What can I say.....
