Thanks Marlow!
It's nothing less than a meticulously crafted online guidebook: done serial Trip Report style.

At some point I need to amend the OP with a usable index.

Mike, I much like this image of yours:

Thanks Roy. I think that was the day I did Niwot Ridge. It was crossing Long Lake and I think it was my B-day.

not my tracks but somebody got a beautiful line off the top of Jones Pass. Notice the snowboarder boot tracking up left of the decent line.

Jack and I did a great little hill just above the Jones Pass parking lot.

Perswig Roy's adventures are covering much more ground and are more inspiring to me. We were just going for the powder and try to get a summit here or there when we can while trying to avoid getting 'llanched.

Wow. I'm digging these images. Most taken from vantage points on which I've never stood.
Like Devil's Thumb plastered with rime ice from the west side. Pretty darned sure it doesn't look like that on the east side right now!

And I also like this one in particular.
Where is this and what's the story?

Roy the fireworks were at winter park on New Years or something I think. The hut is the Peter rabbit hut on Berthoud. Very cool little hut with a lot love by a lot of people over the years. Only stayed there one many years, but still live swinging by when touring it is up the drainage from the parking lot for the 80’s, 90’s and 110’s if you are familiar with the area.

I rarely go over there to Winter Park.
Lisa and I used to skate ski at Devils Thumb & Snow Mountain Ranch, but it's been quite a long time. Maybe 10 years now.

Always heard there were some good summertime moderate, more cruisy mountain biking trails snaking in and around the downhill ski trails.

Lots of mountain biking over there. Have to say I have been disappointed in the mountain biking close to boulder.

Roy how do you feel about the proposed mt bike trail from Eldo to winter park?

I think that trail is a great idea, Mike!
Not that I can actually ride any of my bikes, mind you ...

The proposed trail takes travelers from Boulder up the Marshall Mesa Trailhead to Walker Ranch, from Walker Ranch west into the Peak-to-Peak trailhead in the West Magnolia trail system in Nederland, from Peak-to-Peak to the School Bus Trail close to the Eldora Ski Area, from the Top of School Bus Trail to Corona Pass, and finally into downtown Winter Park.

They are talking about it as a foregone conclusion, with a soft opening in 2022.
https://www.skyhinews.com/news/new-single-track-off-road-trail-will-extend-from-boulder-to-downtown-winter-park/

The trail I'd like to see happen, is the proposed one connecting Boulder to Nederland via that waterworks maintenance trail that parallels 119, on the south side of the creek.

I think the key for the eldo trail is having it start outside of eldo as there would be issues with parking and traffic I would imagine with all the new bikers, hikers ect. There is not enough the way it is now even at Doudy draw, but there does seem to be plenty of room to expand there.

If they are putting a new trail on the aqueduct have poke a few strategically placed holes in that thing while they are at it.

Here is one of the south shoulder on Audubon. Looks like some crazy ski lines here.
