A bubble of friends relieve their q-tine boredom by venturing to the side country during the shutdown in Colorado. Shortly upon the resort closures, the snow kept dumping. In the first few weeks, Loveland Pass became a circus when hundreds of people flocked to the easily accessible back country-feel zone from all over. This resulted in the governor closing the pass, so the crew eased away after some good days and dug into the side of a small mountain in summit county for a week, then made a few climbs up Keystone and Breck before uphill-access was closed for the year. There isn’t much else to do when you live in a resort town and everything is closed, but we kept busy with the help of some shovels, shuttle cars, skins/snowshoes and a little bit of determination.
