That is like saying blow torch in Colorado Springs. Both are below snow line Colorado Springs - 6800 ft and Fort Collins - 5000 feet.
Moved to Colorado!
Very well stated. Had to come from someone else.If you think a couple of days of 50 degree weather is going to cause a melt down like happened here you are sadly mistaken. There is so much snow out there. All it means is beach (as in A Bay Beach) and tanning weather will be happening for a while. 70 degrees in Fort Collins, the Springs or Denver means nothing except that it's beautiful when you come down out of the mountains. Heading out Friday and can't wait to spend my days skiing up in the mountains, coming down to the condo in Cottonwood Heights, putting on my swim suit, making a cocktail and hitting the hot tub with out having to worry about bundling up. Even if I miss the snow cycle its still going to be great.

Telluride March 27+28 for me so focus shifting to Colorado. Hopefully this next week doesn't go from soup to frozen soup before I get there.
As you guys may know I have 50 years skiing the mid-Atlantic, dozens of trips to New England and the equivalent of about 24 week-long ski trips out west. I was in the Vail/Beaver Creek area a couple of weeks ago and I just had to shake my head a few times that week. It's the perfect climate for a skier/boarder. Sunny 300 days a year, good amount of snow, good snow preservation because of the altitude. Pretty mild temps, esp down at the ski town level. I love skiing and have found great pleasure in doing it everywhere on the continent, but these are the findings of an old and well-traveled man Utah ain't bad either!
