Colorado Backcounty: Update

ridge line

It's been deep lately. Winter hasn't given up on Colorado, with over 2 feet of fluffy powder just this week, shit is going off. We've done a lot of riding since the last update so I don't even know where to start. Berthoud and Loveland Pass are sick right now with tons of fresh over the weekend. We rode up at Loveland again on Sunday and it was epic, tons of fresh powder and lots of fun wind blown features of slash. The trees are holding a lot of snow, and you don't have to search very hard for fresh lines. Loveland resort is report over 70" base so you know the snow is good. The Berthoud backcountry is insane right now too, they have been getting a lot of snow these last few months and things are setting up nicely. If your willing to hike and take a long day trip you can access some really fresh steep terrain up near the divide around Berthoud. Don't forget to check avalanche conditions and make safe decisions, steeps just aren't worth your life. AKD and I also hit up Mary Jane last week and the snow was great, after MJ we went up to the Berthoud summit to build a kicker. The powder up on the summit was completely untracked and it was a great landing for our mini huckfest. Even Eldora is getting the stoke, I was up there yesterday and it was perfect. They reported 22" over the last 2 days, the back side Corona was untracked all day long. I rode the steeps on the backside and trees most of the day. Tons of light snow in the morning, around 1pm the sun broke through and things started getting mashed and heavy.

Colorado Backcountry: Loveland Pass


Friday 6am, we found ourselves kicking it with the plow driver from CDOT waiting for the pass to open. He made his way up to blast the seven sisters chutes and the dude ski'd his way down. 9" inches new snow we wre stoked to shred. Around 7am the pass opened and we started to hitch. The shit was deep, the storm dropped a good amount of new snow and it continued throughout the day. We stayed below tree line and had unlimited fresh all day. We also met up with our new plow driver friend for some laps. He was a skier and could shred it up gnar. AKD and I went over to Loveland Resort around 1pm to check out some of the lines off chair 8. Pretty sick over here too, pretty of fresh still around and lots of lines in the trees. The terrain park was kinda whack, most of the rails were set up all crooked and shit. It was wierd. The wall ride was the best feature for sure. We got bored here fast and went back over to the pass to hitch. Got plenty of rides all afternoon until we left for keystone around 7pm. Keystone was alright, hit a few night lines then went straight for the park. The park setup is ill, but it was hella icy from kids hitting shit all day. Tons of jibs and sick jumps. The A51 terrain park lift makes laps easy.

Gravity Games: J5

Big shout to the crew, it was good to see everyone this weekend. Sorry I missed out on the night sesh at Keystone. Some of the weekend highlights included me eating shit into a tree trying to follow J2's tree bonk line. Kicking it with jordy, sarah, adryan, d, stacy, robin, fej, jenn, mark, nick, ryan, and the a.d.d. crew. Jumping off the top of the ghetto rainbow over the bomb hole, trying to figure out who was on the "cool chair".
