I just got a call from good friend and de facto correspondent Hunter Mortensen, who ski patrols at Breckenridge.
He said, "There's so much F*$&Xn' snow up here. It feels like February."
He was loading up a pack full of explosives to go out for a round of avalanche blasting, and estimated they were carrying about 70 pounds of pentolite because the heavy snowfall. It was still dumping as of 9 a.m.
Breck and most other resorts (that are still open) are only reporting 4 to 6 inches but the current amount is much higher. Plus, the ski traffic this time of year is next to none. Might be a good day to call in sick.

Wow, 70 lbs. of pentolite? You don't say.
