Snow from the south

Wolf Creek has a foot of new snow, with more falling now. That makes the total this year 146 inches.

By the way, I sat in on a great avalanche certification class put on by the Pikes Peak Alpine school this weekend. Head guide Jamie Pierce had some great sources for where to find good weather and snow info for the Rockies.

Here's a rundown:
Colorado Snotel readings: dozens of remote mountain sensors (see below) that give you real-time info on snowfall, wind and temperature.
CDOT: has information in its aviation section on "winds aloft" which can help skiers sort out what's going on with the snowpack.
And don't forget the "Pikes Peak over 11,000 feet" report we link to everyday (look for it to the right).
