Lots of snow forecasted for that area tonight .... might be a hell of a climb with high danger...


Statement

An Avalanche Watch remains in effect through Saturday morning for the Front Range, Vail-Summit County, and Steamboat zones. Low pressure continues to strengthen over the Eastern Plains of Colorado. Wrap-around flow with abundant springtime moisture is generating heavy snowfall in the watch area. As of Friday morning, 2-5 inches of storm snow reported across much of the watch area, and 8 inches at Berthoud Pass. Snowfall continues into Saturday with up to two feet likely for the most favored areas east of the Continental Divide. If forecast snow verifies, then avalanche danger could become HIGH in the watch area on Saturday. We will re-evaluate Saturday morning and upgrade the watch to a warning if conditions warrant..

Indeed - except that he's 31 - has a full time job building big big weapons and weapons related stuff for the government and should be able to not drink once or twice a month to get up early and ski.

I'm 24 - I should still be in "get crazy drunk and then get up early to hike mode" (oh wait I do that, just not when I want to ski down - 5 14ers summited with a severe hangover)

But...I digress - there is more than one person to ski the 14ers with
