I was wondering if you guys were getting hit. Southern Colorado is getting pounded, but the local resorts aren't doing so hot here. Maybe that will change in the next 24. How much snow have you gotten?

Wolf Creek is closing in on 60" this week. Definitely favoring the southern areas.

Yeah, a lot of the Vail resorts take their measurements with a "rubber" ruler too!

The key word you are looking for is "interlodge". If the canyons are under interlodge, then they are closed for avalanche control, and I am not sure if they even spin the lifts during this period. I would think so, but only if the man power is there. The good news is you can probably still get to the Park City areas, Powder Mountain, and Snobasin. Otherwise, even it is snowing, you shouldn't have much of a problem getting to the resorts.

Powder isn't open yet so that is a no-go.....Basin and MPD's fav Nordic (aka wolf mtn.) are with limited runs.....Not sure about PC....
