Re: 15 April Peaks Pow Odyssey

W, you have hit the nail on the head, dark and sinister and capitalistic to boot. I am not sticking up for the "resort" managment by anymeans, but the open/closed call does come from the Forest Service and the plowing and maintainance of the road is the ski areas baby. Both are partners in...

Re: 15 April Peaks Pow Odyssey

Guys, how long have you been in flg? When has the road ever been open when the "resort" is not? If it cost $ and there is no $ to be made the road will be closed for weekend snowstorms. Sucks. I bet access will be really poor with the expansion and associated monkey wrenching promised. May...

Re: IB Tour with Rumor of an Avalanche

That aspect of Fremont is notorious for being the perfect conditions for slab slides. The shaded north faces would be the ideal bed surface for a slab produced by the SW winds that we have seen, couple that with the long expance of the Agassiz/Fremont ridge and west face of Fremont to strip snow fro...

Re: Search And Rescue Mission #3

Don't get me wrong Aaron and co. I was not trying to knock your services; I was thinking more along the lines of personal responsibility of back country users. Having more like minded people in the area, ie.experienced backcountry users, available for duty might be a bennefit to everyone especially ...

Re: Search And Rescue Mission #3

Heres a thought, The Coco SAR is almost entirely volunteer, running on a shoestring budget in the largest county in the lower 48.

Re: Search And Rescue Mission #3
