Looks like Summit County is poised to get the shaft again

While SW CO is supposed to get dumped on, forecasters are backpedaling as hard as they can about their predictions for the central mountains. Yesterday, they were calling for 8-16 inches by tonight. Now there is supposed to be no significant accumulation today with a 60% chance of snow tomorrow with 1-4" expected with another 60% chance of snow on Sunday, but no accumulations listed.

Usually when they start backpedaling like this, you can expect to get nothing.

Yeah, I was up at Breck today. I'd say they got about 6" or so of new fresh. It was a really nice day. The conditions were brutal - blowing light snow, single digit temps, and windy as hell - which kept the crowds down. Got in a lot of really good runs.

Traffic coming back was pure hell. The drive from Breck to Evergreen is normally an hour tops. It took over 3 hours today.

Go the back way over Hoosier pass next time it'll save you the headache of the tunnel.

I should've just went over Loveland Pass. The traffic stopped just past the Silverthorne exit. They were shutting down the tunnel for 20 minute intervals to ease traffic on the other side. It cleared up at Georgetown. If I would've just taken the pass, it would've saved me at least an hour and 45 minutes.

I live in north Evergreen. That drive across Hoosier Pass and down 285 takes me nearly 2 hours on a good day. Plus, I hate that fucking drive.

Loveland Pass was closed. So probably not...

We got some mid week storms that are supposed to roll through. Right now it doesn't look like they are going to do much. That can change dramatically though...
