Loveland Pass Backcountry

  • Jan 6, 2013 · 8:30 AM

 

We will ski from the pass on either the Atlantic or Pacific side depending on conditions.  Loveland has numerous enjoyable descents ranging from intermediate to advanced and many of them are now looking pretty good.

We will probably do this with a shuttle, so for a few hundred feet gain we can get a few thousand feet descent!  If you have a vehicle that can help with shuttle please post that.

Beacon, probe, and shovel are required for this outing.

I will plan on meeting folks at the pass at 8:30.  If you would like to carpool from the front range please post that.

    I had a great time and skiing in variable conditions was a great learning experience for me. Beau, thanks so much for organizing and letting less experienced people like myself to tag along. Can't wait for the next trip!

    Thanks to everyone that showed up. This was one of our largest backcountry outings, so thanks for everyone's patience

    Hey it looks like I'll be driving from Boulder; does anyone need a ride? I can meet at the Wooly Mammoth / JJ and give people a ride. Not exactly where to rally at the pass so I'd at least like to have a rally point and/or passenger who knows where to go.

    I'll give my spot to someone as I have family coming into town and can't make it. Now I have to figure out how to un RSVP. Have fun and be and be careful too with so many peeps. I just read a devastating article about avalanches with large ski groups (Snow Fall: Avalanche at Tunnel Creek)...I'm imagine we haven't had much snow and the snow is stable now, but be safe! :)

    Popular destination and the level of interest begs for a second tour group...I would be happy to help in any way that I can if we could arrange for that.

      It's been a couple of years since I've done Loveland, but used to do it pretty frequently, (probably skiied the pass about 25 times). I'd be happy to lead or assist.

    I didn't click soon enough for the second group..Is it possible we could form a third group for those who didn't make it on either ?

    My explorer seats 7, and I'll be coming from Boulder. Wait, have to flip two seats for gear and then me, so I guess I have room for 3-4.

    For the 12 people on the waiting list, comment below on your thoughts on just making a Facebook event and then meeting up there somewhere with a shuttle. We have one offer of a Chevy avalanche.

      I'm game and can offer up my forrester

    I haven't toured Loveland Pass yet but would like to get my first experience. I can drive and use my truck (Chevy Avalanche) to shuttle. I'm on the wait list now but perhaps as George has suggested a second group may work.
