post #1231 of 1255

FYI, highway 9 is closed between Keystone and the Basin. Access to the Basin is over Loveland Pass.

ClosedView Map
US 6 Eastbound / Westbound Loveland Pass (Milemarker 216-229)

Closed due to rock slide, no estimated time of re opening. Hazmats trucks use Tunnel at top of hour, other traffic held, possible delays. Access to ski area open via US 6 from Loveland (east side) of pass. Road Closure began May 27th, 2014 at 4:16pm.

Yeah, CDOT is saying closed but it's open from the east side, just to ABasin, not through to Keystone etc.

I'm skiing Abasin Friday and Indy Saturday/Sunday.  

 

Has Hwy 6 reopened? 

 

With this heat, is there anything soft at the Basin first thing at 9am?

Yes, 6 has opened, and yes, almost everything is soft at 9 am....(not much is freezing overnight)

ABasin open weekends through 22 June

post #1239 of 1255

In all probability, Zuma open only 2 more days, thru Sunday the 1st, ski patrol said. 

post #1240 of 1255
Doesn't seem they'd keep Zuma open for the weekend only extensions and it's been June 1 for closure even since they announced staying open the next weekend. It's so damn warm just keep two lifts spinning and the beer flowing.

I'm going to try and go up next Friday. Sounds like it might bit cooler...
post #1241 of 1255
I confirmed with a lifty that zuma was closing after tomorrow.
post #1242 of 1255
Some snow at A-Basin today...





Lake Reveal yesterday....

CO, the land of endless winter.  So pretty up there.

post #1245 of 1255
Interesting info on the 2014 snowpack vs. previous years. We were generally on pace in northern CO with the record 2011 year through the first week of April, and then the 2014 snow machine pretty much shut down (except for a few timely returns).

A-Basin June 9th with a good freeze and a bit of fresh. Skiing would be awful right now, but sure is purty.

post #1247 of 1255
This is weather related biggrin.gif

post #1248 of 1255

Will they go past next weekend? 

post #1249 of 1255

I asked Allen this, Sunday around noon (along with a stream of folk going by). At the time it was fixin' to cold rain or snow lightly, maybe. Dunno since I left. 

 

Allen said it was a day to day decision past the 22nd, and would be decided next weekend, depending on the melt in between. He genuinely wasn't sure. 

post #1250 of 1255
I'd be a little surprised if they go longer, but there is still plenty of snow on the upper mountain so maybe a chance if it does cool down mid-week and stay that way through the weekend.

Sat was good (if you like corn to piled up slush, not sticky) from bell to bell. I figure the demand would be there if they can push one more weekend.

Snowing up high at Abay. 

 

post #1253 of 1255

^^ aw I got a little bit teary

post #1254 of 1255

Abay kind of signifies the start and end of ski season for a lot of folks so cheers to the 2013-2014 season and get ready for El Nino in a few months.  :D

It is snowing, time for a new thread. In deference to El Niño, weak or not, I started a Colorado weather thread as New Mexico may have something separate to discuss smile.gif
