Photos: Ten Stupidest Reasons Why Yobeat Thinks Colorado Sucks

Page 2 of 5

Number 10: Lack of snow Yobeat's take: Now I'm not talking about Southern Colorado, we all know Wolf Creek gets dumped on blah blah blah, but anyone who actually lives in Colorado can tell you those storms are few and far between. And half the time when it snows, the snow is too damn light to actually cover anything.

Our take: True, several recent seasons have suffered from a shortfall of natural snow, forcing an over-reliance on snow-making. But the past couple of years have been great and signs look positive for this year, too. Stick your head back in the hole, groundhog.

Number 9: Shitty avy conditions Yobeat's take: When and if it does snow, the Colorado backcountry is downright treacherous. Stay alive out there, kids.

Our take: That advice about the backcountry is sound, especially after all the avalanche deaths that took place last winter. But whining about there being too little and too much snow on the same list strikes us as too damn much whining.

Continue to keep counting down the ten stupidest reasons why Yobeat thinks Colorado sucks.
