I am about 5 months into being new to GJ as well and would be very excited to meet another ski bum in this town. Been driving every weekend to all those great places "nearby" and touring around the mesa solo all winter.
Although I've been looking at the lines on the headwall, not checked it out. After last night's hike on Powderhorn though not sure it will happen this spring....all that fresh snow set up like concrete with a good solid 2" crust. Sad.
Have also been told there is some fun skin & ski around Old Mesa and between Powderhorn and Old Mesa through the trees.
So if you need an exploration partner for the less than epic mtn climber couloir BC experience, I would be psyched to have someone local to call to get outdoors with and check it all out.
