Storm pushes some resorts over 100-inch mark!

Wow, The latest dump in the Rockies pushed Aspen, Wolf Creek, and Silverton over the 100 inches of snow mark for the year. Here are some of the latest counts:

Arapahoe Basin: 8”
Aspen Mountain: 21”
Beaver Creek: 14”
Breckenridge: 10”
Copper Mountain: 10”
Crested Butte: 17”
Keystone: 9”
Loveland: 15”
Monarch Mountain: 10”
Silverton: 18”
Snowmass: 24”
Steamboat: 23”
Telluride: 15”
Vail: 17”
Winter Park/Mary Jane: 11”
Wolf Creek: 34”

If you're going to enjoy it, bring extra layers. It was -8 at Breck this morning with windchill at one point getting up to -48.
On a hardly related note, but something that warrants discussion, The Gazette ran a story from Salt Lake today detailing how our carbon-loving lifestyle will slowly carve away at the ski season. The spring melt is coming a week earlier than it did 50 years ago. Click here to read more.
The take home message is two-fold. 1. Push for a global climate treaty. 2. Enjoy the skiing while you can.

Oh! That's really freezing out there. I'll surely bring some extra layers when I've got the chance to visit the place. Thanks for the suggestion. Cheers!
