    Cool Photo TR: The Week in Review 3.14.06-3.21.06

    The past week has been a whirlwind. Went from backpacking in Kauai to riding light and fluffy Colorado pow within a matter of hours. The skiing has been pretty decent lately. Small systems rushed through the state over the course of the week, dropping just enough to make the skiing good. The end of the week brought a decent upslope storm, stacking up to 18" of fairly light pow along the front range mountains. Got to tour with some old friends and some new friends along the way. Maybe the pictures below will bring 'surf the earth' out of lurk mode and he'll start posting.

    I'm TR'ed out, so I'll let the pics do the talking. Enjoy:

    Storm day. Good skiing, 7" of new, on top of 6" of 2 day old fluff. Upslope starting to kick in. RMNP.

    Dragontail couloir:



    Didn't quite get it this time.







    Conditions were pretty good. Lot's of loose snow sloughs coming down, but no deep instability to be found.

    RMNP. Storm's a brewing. A good 7" of fresh on top of a soft layer. Good skiing.

    The Elvis pic is my favorite one

    When Iskibc called me up and said, "Vail pass... tomorrow... sleds" I was in the middle of a run down the Elevator Chutes in Winter Park. I was down.... but little did I know that it was not just a dawn patrol, but it was an "Oh My God I have to wake up at 3am" dawn patrol It was worth it though. Vail Pass was money.... and a reward after not tackling the couloir on Sunday.

    Gosh do I love spring break! 4 days of skiing down, 5 to go!

    If you ever put together a book with all these TR's, put me down for one. Kick ass man.

    Is that Hallett Peak in RMNP? Looks like it on the top left of that valley shot with the snow coming down.

    Thanks Lloyd. A project is in the works for a specific range/zone, but won't be out for a couple years.

    Yeah, that's Hallett. We made an attempt to climb and ski the Dragon's tail couloir off Flattop, but decided to turn back about 3/4 of the way up after numerous loose snow slides came down the couloir from spindrifts and snow from the narrow gulley above. A good 18" of light snow had accumulated in the couloir, making our attempt unsafe for that day. The pack below was bomber and wasn't going anywhere, however, after I got buried up to my waist in a loose snow slide, we turned around and went elsewhere. Can't wait to get back on that route, as it's a fun and aesthetic climb/ski.

    I think the consensus is I should keep the pink pants.

    Z-Bo, they are not "easter bunny pink".... I like to think of them as Pink Panther Pink Cuz I'm sly like a panther

    To answer your question, RootSkier, they are Burton Cargo, Women's. The color is HIBISCUS.
