November? November was already deeper than your base all season... 145" for the year? We had 48" before December. Cody was had to snorkel in Butler Gulch
Although that was November 30th. That is when the snow started and it didn't stop until the first week of March. In fact so much snow so often that I wasn't able to get pictures until January 3rd because of the lousy light. Even then the light wasn't good, but if you can huck your meat the snowpack ain't thin.
I have no idea where you get the idea that it was "bad" out here. Anything but bad. Just not as consistent as the previous four years. Yeah November was pretty much a best until the end. Then again our season goes until June for resorts, longer if you are really hardcore and want to bc it in the alpine. I'll be done sometime in May. Last year the last powder day was May 9th. At least the last one I got.
and it was puking and not very good for trip reports. I am making an effort to post up better quality pics. As many sunny days as we get, we get an awful lot of bad weather too, thats makes for poor photos.
Regardless the snow pack in Colorado was above average until 5 days ago. It dipped to 98% of normal. Warm weather and no snow for almost four weeks will do that. As of this week most places have received over 30" of snow and it's still going on. Utah is probably rocking more. More snow is likely on the way middle of next week after a brief one or two day break. Mountains are still open, powder days are still happening. We are above average again, just like that.
295" and counting at Winterpark, throw another 80" on top of that for Berthoud Pass. No shortage of snow. It's just "average". I'll gladly take average.
