    Nice report Tony! I’ve been on here for years and still have yet to write a ride report. Now that the 1190 has past the break in let’s go for a ride.

    Nice report. You can guess from my inmate name where I used to live - 35 years in Conifer - 285 commute.

    The photos took me back to some great rides. Post more. (A little homesick now.)
    Micro Brew in Bailey? Who would have thought
    Is the Buck Snort still open?

    Ooooh A-Basin! I used to love driving up there and watching all the suckers continue on to Vail and other over-crowded, over-hyped I-70 destinations while I was unloading at the parking lot to hammer steep, deep powder right off the lift! Love those CO blue sky days too. Cheers

    Got a few memories out that way myself. Lots of them at A basin, Copper, Cooper. School at CMC and Leadville itself in '87 was a touch different than today. I was more comfy there back then. Oh well. Thanks for the RR it brings back lots of memories.
