I have 14" of extremely dry new snow at my house in Breck which means 2+ feet on the ski mountain. I bet the base on the mountain is over 40". I guess I was wrong about October snow not adding to the base... I've never seen it snow this much this early. Total of 61.5" at my house which means 100+" at the Breck weather station.

Wow...impressive. Sounds like Colorado is getting a good start to the season. Looks like the could have more snow than Utah so far, but don't take my word on it.

I was just seeing some totals on the weather channel and wondered how long it would take someone from Breck to post.

When the resorts still do not have snow reports turned on and the opening day is still listed as a month away it only causes anxiety to watch the weather.
I want to go skiing this weekend, but i am not spending $400.00 on a plane ticket, $300.00 for a rental car, and $200 a night for a motel room in order to ski the White Ribbon of Death.!!!

i thought it would snow yesterday, but i didnt know it would SNOW yesterday !

and 2 things on this, if youre spending $100 a day on a rental car and $200 a night near the mountain in october, you should let me be your travel agent. i could get to DIA friday morning w/ no reservations and beat those costs.
and two: the ribbon of death's days are over for the season ! or, at least for loveland and arapahoe. it is full-on ski season 'til last day for those 2 !

Yeah, Loveland will have three lifts open by Saturday, if not more. I'm guessing they'll open quite a bit after this little storm.

Yup. Backdoor slider storms are working their magic on CO early this year. Get it while it's good! We did get some though:

10 - 17" at Snowbird:



14" at Alta (this is a funny picture, as it shows maybe the two or three snow guns Alta owns):

Breck was doing avy control this morning on peak 8. I think they could open pretty much the entire mountain today if they wanted.

Sadly, the weekend forecast of high pressure and warm temps means lots of this is going to melt, esp at the bases. Here's to hoping the snow gods turn it on come November!

I was just looking at the CDOT site, closed all the way from Egreen to Silverplume, and Loveland Pass also closed. I suppose the Summit Countians (Countiers?) can make it up to the basin. I heard that Loveland was only reporting 8" of heavy wet snow.

Go Colorado! We've had a few storms, and there's snow up in the Cottonwoods, but nothing to write home about until yesterday. This was shot this morning at about 7200'. Iron Mountain, between PCMR and the Canyons.

Loveland was reporting 22" at 6:00am this morning... and according to one of the guys who was up there today, it was kneedeep everywhere.

10" rule? Ever watch a WM movie?

I need permission to divulge such important information, Homeland Security and all....
post #27 of 29
yeah, i have journey, impact, and cold fusion. im not much of a wm fan anymore, more trg, msp and meatheads, to support my buds
and i dont recall any mention of 10", ever
more than reason enough to watch them all
post #28 of 29
OK, the 10" rule simply means that if it snows more than 10", then you have the right to miss school or work for a powder day. Its also known as the powder rule in some places.
