Serious Snow in the Colorado Mountains

Comments (8)

I just got a note and pictures two friends – one in Keystone and one in Aspen.  Both said the most recent storms were incredible and the snow in the mountains in fantastic.  The following is from Keystone.

The note from my friend is "We got nailed with snow this past weekend.  One of the top five storms I’ve seen after 15 years of living in Summit County.  We are nearly 100% open and the skiing is great.  Check out these photos from my back yard.  We got about 2 feet in Silverthorne."

    In other news, not a cloud in the sky and sunny here in Southern Cal.

    But I do miss my Colorado snow. Never will I forget waking up in Boulder, looking out my window, seeing white stuff fall, and thinking, “Holy christ. I'm fucked.”

    Weather folks kept saying we were going to get “slammed” with 2 – 4″ of ice Monday of this week, then we ended up with nothing but rain.

    Now we're supposed to get 4-8 inches of snow starting in a few hours.

    I believe the storms are definitely getting worse. Maybe it's just age bias, as I am younger than most of my peers, but I can't remember us ever getting this much ice/snow.

    golly, it's nice to get something other than 70 degrees and sun every freakin' day here in Colorado (admittedly, Denver, not the mountains). Even a little overcast now and then is a welcome relief.

    The bad part about the news telling us that we're getting snow in Denver is that the silly drivers come out of the woodwork and think a light dusting of snow means they should drive 40mph on I-25!!! The snow in Keystone looks like it's going to be fantastic for your nephew to go skiing in a couple of weeks!

    Brad, just how long does it take to drive from Boulder to a good ski area?

      45 minutes to Eldora (small), 60 minutes to Copper, 90 minutes to Keystone / Abasin, and 2 hours to Vail / Beaver Creek.

    Hope you and Amy enjoy the slopes.
