2 more sledders killed out of Logan, UT. At least 1 skier at Toilet Bowl in Jackson Hole, WY.

Snowpack is real unstable just about everywhere right now.

We should be at much less risk in Rabbit Ears but will still need to use common sense. We can skip Vail all together as far as I am concerned. Five days and counting.

What is this assumption made on? Everything I'm seeing doesn't single out this area as better.

I am not a nervous rider, but I am a little concerned about the way things are setting up in the mountains.

Vert, you will see when you get there. Rabbit ears does not have many steep hills/mountains. It is rolling terrain. Lots of hills and meadows, not very steep. I am not saying there is no risk, I would never say that, but it it is greatly reduced. Here is what RE looks like.

There is always a risk when riding in the mountains. just easy enough to decrease the risk by using your head and common sense.
