Why I Love Snow

Why I Love Snow

Sometimes I feel cursed. What evil has fallen upon you, you say? Well like pigpen I often feel a cloud follows me, but it is not filled with dust and dirt. No, a big white cloud  sits above my head and it is filled with snow. Snow drifting and falling and… no it is not dandruff! Normally snow makes me happy but when you have not had a vacation for close to a year and all you find is snow and cold on your journey well you become a little disgruntled. We left Summit County, destination: Lake Powell, with a layover in beautiful, flowering Grand Junction. We arrived to some rain and chilly temperatures but the next day it was expected to clear. We stayed at the La Quinta on Horizon Drive. They have such a lovely pool area with flowering trees. I was looking forward to a coffee under those sweet blossoms. Time to relax and unwind.

Weather Changes Heading Our Way

Weather Changes Heading Our Way

A brutal change in the weather is heading in later today. A strong spring storm will march in from the north. We’ll see big winds and warmth before the frontal passage raising a red flag warning for southern Colorado. There is a chance for substantial snowfall this evening into tomorrow. Yippee or Ya right, you decide! Anyway, it didn’t freeze at 12,000 ft last night so the wet snow avalanche cycle will continue until the big freeze later. Check out the Ten Mile Canyon by Copper Mountain; impressive! So with all the news about the tragic accident on Loveland Pass, and how unstable the north aspects are, why do I see tracks on the chute next to the silver couloir on Buffalo? Hard to figure out so these people will have no sympathy when everything goes wrong. Here is what the US National Weather Service in Grand Junction has to say: It will be very warm and windy across the central and southern half of the area today, well...

Copper Mountain Joins the Party – Snow Season Extended through the Weekend

Copper Mountain Joins the Party – Snow Season Extended through the Weekend

Copper Mountain’s Resort Leadership Team announced that the ski and ride season will be extended for the upcoming weekend, April 19–21. Copper Mountain resort has received over a foot of snow since closing day, April 14; and up to 20 more inches are predicted in the forecast through Sunday, April 21. Spring is historically the snowiest time of year in Colorado and has produced for Copper Mountain with snow totals accumulating over 8 feet in March and April alone. “Mother Nature is a fickle business partner and apparently she wasn’t ready for the ski season to be over. We can’t think of a better way to thank our loyal guests for celebrating our 40th Anniversary season with us,” said Gary Rodgers, President and General Manager of Copper Mountain Resort. “I personally invite everyone who didn’t get enough snow days in this season to come take advantage of the amazing conditions that we still have to offer.” Copper Mountain will open American Flyer, Sierra and Timberline lifts this Friday, Saturday...
