    Consider your stoke restoked. This has already been a great snow year and snow is expected ALL next week. You will not be disappointed!

    Finished up a great week in Steamboat today. Overall good snow conditions with great powder on Wednesday. Got to ski a little with @Ron yesterday on a bitter cold day. Today was a late start after -15* at the base. Warmed up nicely and while it was a little crowded today there were still some stashes to be found. Picture is from today. 767A8944-C769-4663-97CE-8C1B8B351200.jpeg

    nope, coverage is at 118%. Weather-wise, no one can predict what it will be but right now, Open-snow is forecasting storms next Friday/ Saturday and another Sunday/Monday. All subject to change. I dont give any forecast credibility until its 48 hours out but thats not even a high probability of accuracy.

    H*ck yah. Gotta pick a day to sit out since I only have five on the Ikon so this should help guide that choice.

    Use this. And please sign up for Joels forecasts.

    Friday


    The southern storm will eventually move over and east of Colorado, once again turning winds to blow from the favorable west and northwest direction. This means that we have a good chance for steadier and/or more intense snowfall from some point on Friday into Friday night.

    Saturday

    We should wake up to fresh snow from later Friday and Friday night. The rest of the day could be dry and sunny.

    Sunday and beyond

    More snow. A cool pattern with a favorable west and northwest wind could hang around through the middle of next week (February 27) so there could be multiple days of snow.

    Just that it will be less crowded than this week and that the snow is creamy goodness right now. Stay high and stay north for the best happiness quotient. Enjoy!

    Since @Ron is laid up I'll report on the stoke. 20" in the Boat in the last 48 hrs. A serious blower day today!

    Thanks Bruce. What is the best way to make contact with you once we are in Steamboat? We are arriving sometime Monday. My son may want to try to night ski on Monday. First real day on the slopes will be Tuesday and we are skiing all week, Taking Red eye out of Denver on Friday. May ski one of the summtt mountains closer to Denver on Friday. Thanks!

    Unfortunately not the first this year. It puts rescuers at risk and pulls resources away from helping those that stay inside the ropes. The expectation that they can do whatever they want, (without any preparation or thought) but when they get into trouble others must risk their lives to save them is just maddening.

    Rant over, a rave for our Routt County Search and Rescue folks. They are truly amazing.
