I initially thought so too. But, upon closer inspection, you'd have to be very good to get all those bends and reflections just right.

Maybe somebody is.

Look in the center of the O in for. I don't see the shadow of the tree through it...Likewise the D in speed. I like it!!! I think there used to be a racecourse on the right. Don't know if it is still there. LewBob

I don't really see those flaws, I think the contrast between the black and the yellow is drowning the difference between the dark yellow nad light yellow in the middle of the characters. I am not saying it is definitely genuine but if it is photoshopped they did a bloody good job.

Your're right. The bends in the letters are perfect. Maybe it was a spring joke by some of the staff, about a month early (April Fool's Day would have been good). We need to see if Vail SnoPro or someone else from Eagle County can verify. It is pretty funny. LewBob

Were there other signs in conjunction with this sign? It may be part of a multi-banner warning. I do see some other banners below it, it is possible that there were others above it.

Like Burma Shave signs.

Those signs say something like "space not speed" I think it's photoshop.

The voice from Brooklyn wins the prize. I remember seeing such signs at Vail last week, though I wasn't on that run. Really good job of photo shop. Maybe that is why the shadows didn't seem to match perfectly. LewBob

"space not speed" is all over the Vail and Breckenridge. I suspect it is a new common safety message in summit county??

Somebody spent a good amount of computer time on this. Nice hoax!

strato, if the person was an online gamer, then he might want to race his 1973 Datsun in the game "Need for Speed".
There's probably a forum somewhere where he will post this, and get a bunch of virtual piston heads really excited.

OK guys, those are some great responses. I did this is photoshop in about 3 minutes. Thought it would be fun! I rearranged the sign while dreaming of the volkl superspeeds. The sign originally said, "NO NEED FOR SPEED"
