Well, this is my 12th year riding Cameron and 32nd day of the year up there this season...I witnessed the sd slide but what we rolled up to this morning in seven Utes was terrifying! Seven Utes mountain slide all the way across to the ground. The debris field was nothing but trees!!! A mountain that had tree shots is now an open bowl. The crown was thirty feet is some spots! We could visible see dirt...I only got one thing to say and that is if your riding cp we should be in flashing red and if your dumb enough so step on a sw-se aspect your probably not a smart person and quality control will take over this week.

Makes me think how massive S. Diamond would go now had it not already cleansed itself. Thankful for my solid and my pass lately.

Thanks for posting Erick! We were planning on tip-toeing through the mellow trees this weekend...this confirms it. If you haven't already, can you submit an observation to CAIC as they can always use the data?

^^^ No, he didn't. I check the obs section pretty religiously.

Great pics Shantyman. Love the lighting in the first one! Keep sharing.

Come on, man. If you can post here, you can submit an observation.

Yes, the last two weeks have been GREAT! Very nice air time!

Great pic of South Diamond SkiFreak.

What an amazing past week it's been! Every day delivered the goods. Nice pics everyone.


Thursday at Loveland Ski Area was unreal.

Sat offered blue skies and icing on the trees. One of those days that you just want to ski and not stop to take photos.

Took a friend out for his first bc day on Sunday. He's going to have a false sense of what is normal. Lots of rime and snow up high gave an interesting perspective on the rock.

Skinning above treeline on Monday was like being inside of a ping pong ball. Super tough to navigate. You just had to know where to go and move by feel. Snow was still in great shape.

Image

We did not push the angle at all this past weekend. Stability was good on low angle slopes. The snow was definitely more creamy (higher water content) than typical pixie dust we tend to receive.
