I got a pair of used K2 Super Stinx at the end of last season that I'm itching to use. We should def' plan a backcounty day once the snow piles up a bit.

The skins are cool - the look like mud terrains :)

I'm forgoing my season pass this year and thinking of picking up a split board and some climbing skins for backcountry runs. I'm tired of the lift lines and traffic. I want to take an avalanche safety course too.

Very cool. I've never seen skins like that. I'm just getting into tele after 9 years on a snowboard. I've got a pair of Super Stinx that I really like. Just need more time to get out and practice....

I only grabbed a 4 pack to winter park and xpass to the butte and monarch. I might be tempted to go to the basin a day or two but that's it going to summit for me.

Glad you were able to spring for some new gear. :thumb:

Hey Wes, I'd be interested in going to Monarch a few times this winter and maybe even CB, so let me know when you go! But yeah this is also the first winter I've ever had a pass, so I decided to stick close with that!

Hey all you b/c skiers! The Bent Gate is hosting a free avy clinic this next Tuesday 10/23 at 8pm in Golden CO! See if you can make it!

X-card 5 days unlimited at cb and 2 days at monarch for 159. I've had really really sick deep, deep days at monarch. If you've never skiied the extreme limits at cb it's sick too. I can take you to all the stashes on that mtn. They need snow though. I figure 2 weekends down there and 2 days at monarch more than pay for this deal.

I'm in for backcountry whenever.

We should do Berthoud Pass one day, set up a shuttle and bring a bbq and some :beer:

That sounds great. I haven't been to Berthoud since the lifts disappeared.

Yeah, too bad you missed it. Bruce and his friend were there, and it was a pretty good time!
