    Well my real first weekend in Colorado and it is snowing like crazy. Loveland is showing 15 inches on the stake. Other mountains reporting the same. Supposed to snow into tomorrow. Not skiing today due to 40-50 m/h winds but two of our boys are at Copper. We are heading out tomorrow to Loveland or A Basin. Funny thing and as many of you know, some of the ski areas have shut down already. They are serious about their hard stops which is a bit of a bummer.

    If you take what the mountain gives you, you will always have fun!

    Hard to argue when your on leased land... Besides the irony of such a large spring storm there is the added insult of our own pitiful excuse for a winter.

    Shitty season in the northeast and while we will still ski to the end here it is sad to see fully covered ski areas closing!

    Yea but its always been that way. You have your bastions of late season skiing.(AB LL Snowbird) A lot of the major resorts have their employees on contracts that expire so no workers, Forest service closes for breeding season and most of all the customers dry up (even the locals). You now have the Loveland Pass area to play around with till June. (Looks like at least 15 + there over what was a solid base a week and 1/2 ago. ) Enjoy the Beach at Arapahoe.

    I'd rather have that problem with ski areas like ABasin staying open as long as August 10th than what we got going on here right now!!

    So I read something recently that says La Nina will likely happen and that the impact for the northeast will be colder temps than normal with less precipitation than normal. Sounds like a reverse of what's supposed to happen with el nino. Given our primo snow making capacity, maybe it will be a good year! It better be dammit!

    This is a better graphic - hope this comes true for New England or should I say the Northeast!

    This is why I don't believe anything meteorologists predict.

    This is from last year ... we all know how that worked out



    Here we have this years prediction. Notice anything similar?
