Greetings Axel, I always get a grin with these signs. The same sign is on Berthood Pass. The skiers and boarders take a chance when going in the back country. If the avalanche doesn't get you a projectile just might! Ah, what we do for snow play. ;-))

What a great color contrast!
Greetings Paul and Ralph, The top of Loveland pass has become a mecca for the back country skiers and boarders who don't want to fight the crowds on the slopes. The east side of the pass towards Loveland Basin ski area is an open bowl dropping into thick forest. The west side of the pass is wide open all the way down to Arapaho Basin Ski Area. The highway department drags around its howitzer and shoots stuff down when it gets to dangerous. The shredders have marked their territory on the sign.
Greetings Billy, I think they close the pass and sweep it before they start shooting. It would be a drag to be on a slope, see a dart impact the snow, hear the report from the howitzer and then realize the lights were just about to go out. It would not be a fun way to get down the hill. Stick with the deer stalkers, at least you will be able to talk to them eye to eye.

That sign remeinds me to another.
That sign reminds me to another which the photographer reminds to Texas.

Greetings Rapidshot, There are so many interesting signs around us. We just need to stop and take a second look at some of them.

Greetings Alan, Thanks for visiting. There are so many skiers and boarders in the back country they have to post these warnings on the passes. Otherwise the back country folk may end up having a really bad day.
