    I just go by ytd snow and base at LL as that's my personal point of reference. Things seem pretty much average for them at a 65 inch base....maybe summit is having a banner year idk but 65 inch mid mtn isn't all that deep for the 4th week of March IMO. Then again that's still a good deep natural base and Spring storms will likely get them even deeper

    Ya the 130% is a seasonal accumulation amount. But to put it into perspective at the beginning of February we were at 150% for the time frame - the lack of new snow is showing up in the percentage dropping.

    I know they've been doing real good down south so that's gotta play into the statewide average 320 ytd at the Butte is pretty strong for them

    Snowbird total snowfall this season as of 3/28/17 is 479", with several months still to go. Only records I had handy for comparison go back only to 2009 season. 479" is more than the full season totals at Snowbird for each year 2009-2016.

    BTW, I was at Snowbird week of 22 Jan 2017 for the snowiest skiing of my life. Records show the following streak of snow days for that time frame : 20th 5", 21st 17", 22nd 17", 23rd 9", 24th 22", 25th 4", 26th 7", 27th 2"!!! No wonder I didn't see the sun for five days

    Going back out tomorrow for nine days.

    Three feet fresh would be a nice blowtorch killer.



    Fingers crossed.

    Would go straight to Crested Butte. Seems they have a abnormally deep snowpack down there and that place has GOT to be special with a deep base!

    A high pressure system has been plaguing the state the entire month. Thankfully it's finally moving out, and hopefully we'll get some more snow over the weekend, although right now it looks like it's mostly going to high Southern CO and east of the divide.

    Might just have to make a trip to Telluride for closing weekend.
