RMNP Terrain Park

Bill and I headed up to Rocky Mountain National Park to the same area I had my Avy 1 Certification the other weekend.  The zone above the Bear Lake trailhead is filled with some fun aspects and sweet terrain features.  We had a pretty quick day up there and only squeezed in two runs before we had to head back to Denver. 
We took off from the car around 10:30 AM and hiked up to Tyndall Gorge (seen below).

The first run through the Terrain Park had some fun little drop offs but was short lived before we started a second trek back up the ridge.  I snapped a couple photos on top of the ridge before we dropped into Mario Land for some late day turns.

I’ve been up to Rocky Mountain National Park a few times to enjoy some backcountry turns and every time it continues to surprise me in terms of how fun and accessible it can be.  Everyone up there is super friendly and respectful on the trails and just looking to enjoy some time outdoors.  And I never mind the fresh snow left untracked unlike the hoards of people who rip up Summit County resorts.

Bill didn’t mind the snow in Mario Land either.
