Mt. Evans sits in the Front Range just a little west of Denver. It's summit used to house a restaurant that burned down and now is the home of an observatory and a paved parking lot that sits just 200 feet below the summit. This road is usually plowed and open by Memorial Day which allows for several weeks of car serviced snowboarding/skiing off Evan's summit before the snow melts off.
It is popular during the spring for skiers and snowboarders to spend a day shuttling runs down Evans steep north face between the summit and Summit Lake. Disclaimer! This route is steep and dangerous if you take a tumble it would be very easy to die or get hit by a rock from another careless person with a similar result. But for those with the skills, running laps on a face like this is a real treat in the spring.
