This just in. SNOW forecasted for the Cascades in August @ 6,000 ft. Ozone layer is thinning at the moment,no sun spot activity,Horses are starting to lose summer coats,leaves are turning,geese are moving and the Jet stream is dropping. The High Desert has been known to go from Summer to Winter almost overnight.

I'm on it. I will be manning the webcams tomorrow morning. If snow holds within a webcam's view; it'll be here.

And I was thinking Wed. after hiking up to 10 mile station at breckenridge, that a month from now; those peaks might have snow all over them(more than the snow strips there are now.) Hopefully, i'm off by a month.

We got some hail about two weeks ago here in Frisco, CO and some of the higher peaks picked up some snow...I think some were skiing/riding Loveland pass. Since then, the weather has turned back to Summer and the new snow has melted off (although there are still some patches of previous snow up real high.

Phil, I think they are talking August. That was in January.

I think that was late Sept when they fired the guns up. We were Mt biking that weekend.

Aug, what a dreamer...

I've hiked up Stowe in October to make some turns. That's this easterner's earliest outing.

Ahhh yes the early season Rock skiing, how could I forget those gouges the whole length of a ski or that edge that got pulled 1/4" from the sidewall. Unless you've skied the Volcanoes you don't know what real rock skiing is. The damage those rocks can inflict is sick. Am I right.
