Butler Gulch?

Anyone know of back country skiing within 60 minutes of Denver that is as good as Butler Gulch? I'm looking for non-steep, if possible.

And how much snow is at Butler Gulch already?

Riley and I hiked up Butler after a few hours on Copper's W.R.O.D.

Coverage looked pretty good. We didn't get up to the steep parts. The approach trail was totally covered. There were several groups coming out. They wren't bragging, but they didn't get skunked either.

Man, I'm ready to get back there. Hope there are a few more storms before the T weekend. Can't get away until then.

Basil,
Lots of really good skiing besides Butler in CC and way less crowds, just depends on how much you want to tour. If you wanna compare notes and get out touring, let me know.
Let It Snow!!!!
