I-70 was closed in both directions for a while on "our side" (closer to the city).Are they? I've been watching the traffic from Longmont to Breck and vv all day, and it's looked pretty clear most of the afternoon. When it looked bad, it was going east - west had a half hour delay at the worst I've noticed.
We bagged. Bummed because it’s the Guanella Pass Brewery day for mug club members at Loveland, but it’s not worth it at this point to make a huge fight to get there.Most Front Range schools are closed tomorrow too. I wonder how many parents will take the kids skiing? Could be some traffic on I-70 to add to the possible avalanche mess.
Didn't ski yesterday but my DW did. She said it was empty and the snow was heavy, but nice. Got first tracks on an ungroomed upper valley view in the afternoon...Word from the boat (a friend visiting) is that the mountain was empty, she wa getting untracked 8” after lunch in popular areas Snow was decent, not too heavy Very strange snow report probably contributed. Resort reported no snow from the close however, there was clearly 6” on the champagne powder stake (not the official snow reporting location, and now they are reporting 10” in 24 hours so....) and at our house we had more than 8” on the Finn Powder stake. I’m seeing 5” on the champagne stake this AM from the close and it’s been in single digits over night so anyone skiing the boat this AM should be treated with some very fine snow.
Edit: update, they are now claiming (as of this AM) 17" in 24 hours at the summit and 8" at mid-mountain in 24 LOL.
@Bruuuce need to ski vicariously through you, need the report please
