Pushing Piles

We spend all winter building it up. Now it’s time to break it down. The crew has been busy plowing around our base lodge and bottom lift terminals. This helps melting snow access our drainage system and speeds up the process of opening our summer access to these areas. It’s all about getting water to go where you want it. We are seeing some patches start to develop on the south slopes and the lower base areas with this aspect are pretty dry. Our winter snowpack has already peaked for the season as have many others in the west. This Snotel Map is a pretty neat tool to look at the current and historical snow levels around the western states and more specifically at the mountain ranges in Colorado.
