First major storm of the year!

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
 Any one else been watching the snow reports? Abasin is predicted to receive upwards of 2 feet in the next two days! I am really hoping it will allow them to open up some more terrain for this weekend. Anyone else heard anything about this system?

Looks like CO is expecting a big storm.  My flight from Denver was cancelled at lunchtime today and United were busy rerouting people away from Denver.

I'm looking out a window and it's looking pretty good here in eastern Boulder County.  Winter Park HR said they had to shovel snow 2X up there today.  They just said it was really dumping up there - about 5 minutes ago.

I got 3 sick days and a southwest free flight credit, can you say trick or treat Abasin, i want something good to ski ? I can.

You might want to hold off booking any tickets.  Let's just say that the Breck web cam is presenting a slightly skewed picture of what is going on up here.  Things seem to be looking better for Copper and Breck, but not so much for A-Basin and Keystone.  Hopefully that will change, but usually big snow in Denver means little snow in Summit County.     After a few years of living up here, you learn to be cynical when the forecasters start promising dumps measured in feet...

From what I have seen watching the radar is Summit has not seen much snow. The front range is getting hammered. The mountains are just seeing little bits here and there.

Soooo true.  It's looking like a classic upslope.

Different story at my house.  Must have 1.5 feet so far.  I'm NOT looking forward to shoveling the driveway.  More is on the way.

Out of the mountain resorts they all seem to only have 8" or fewer inches. Eldora has 13". Boulder and Denver will see more snow out of this than any of the ski areas, except maybe Eldora and Echo mountain.

Just checked Echo's website, they are reporting over 2' as of noon.

A-Basin had 5" this morning but not much since.

Yeah, I think it was more like A-Basin *had* 5" but it was mostly blown away by the time they opened.  The winds were a bit on the extreme side.  I almost didn't even get out of the car this morning, but since I was already there, I made JMD boot up and dragged him up the hill for a run.  After which, I quickly recognized that I'd run out of reasons to keep skiing and went home...

Absolutely nothing going on in Dillon/Keystone.  I've only seen a few brief flurries.

daysailer, please send your snow up here where it will be properly appreciated .

Only if I can come too. 

It's not really being appreciated in my driveway or on my sidewalk right now.   My stupid oak tree and linden tree didn't bother to lose their leaves either like the rest of my trees.  I had to go out and knock the snow off that I could. The snow promptly fell on me.  The limbs were ready to snap.   I can't find my Sorels right now either and my snow clogs filled up with snow.   I now have cold wet feet and the cat keeps  screaming at me for some reason.

Well, one of my favorite bar's knows how to prioritize and get my attention.  I just got this email from them.  I even have 10 coupons for free beers that expire on Saturday.  Well, no way to get down there right now.

things are still looking pretty white for this time of year, but it has stopped snowing in Frisco and the accumulation was low enough that my driveway cleared itself...a bit more possible tonight, tommorow and later in the week, but it seems they have been revising the accumulation totals downwards...
