Wind & Snow

It was that kind of day. I had a feeling that last night’s storm would over produce and we woke up to 6″ of fresh snow falling overnight. The storm’s momentum continued during the day with several more inches of snow coming down. The wind played its part for the second day in a row with a few more wind holds and closures on the lifts. The highway was also a challenge on Friday for drivers headed up the pass with a few incidents, several hours of highway closure during the day and an evening round of CDOT avalanche mitigation on the pass. Despite the hardships, for those that were here, it will be a day to remember. We should be looking at another fine morning of skiing on Saturday as there will be refills galore along with untouched lines on the Breezeway terrain that never opened today. Rest up!
