(Editor’s note: WildSnow.com as a website existed in 2001, but was only beginning as a blog. We ported this article to blog format for historical context. Real blogging began in December of 2004.)
Central Colorado still has a thin snowpack this early March of 2001, but it is based and pow can be had for backcountry skiing. Lots of tender avalanche conditions, however, so we’re staying in the dense trees and avoiding roll-overs and pockets. No bowl skiing till the spring stabilization. Lot’s of fun to be had anyhow. Carl Pelletier and I had a superb day yesterday with multiple laps in safe zones.
