I'm not buying into the current storm (named Xena Warrior Princess apparently), we had this last year and it was like 45degrees all winter after.

The good news is that most weather forecasts I've seen have predicted above average snowfall this year. After last year, that's a very welcomed thing.

Personally, I'd like another warm spell to melt all of this off. I'd rather wait until November and then have it just start dumping.

Theres nothing but warm temps and sunshine forecasted for the next 10+ days, so you're gonna get your wish. Maybe a dusting on tuesday at best.

Good. October snow breeds December avalanches.

Maybe that late October storm will be the kickoff. That would be alright.

Pretty much all of the snow that falls now is going to have an impact on avalanche danger. The best scenario now is that we get storms on a regular basis. Not much more than a week apart at least. If that happens, the depth hoar shouldn't be anywhere as nasty as last season. Frequent refreshes insulate the snow and keep that rot from building too fast. Wishful thinking, but hey, I am glass half full kind of guy...

Anyone ever made the drive from AZ to CO through the New Mexico route?

Im thinking we might just haul a trailer but dont know if it will be safe at the end of December....

From what I can tell off google maps it doesnt look too sketchy but anyone know first hand??

You should be all good to go! I've rolled up from Tucson through Albuquerque and into Denver a few times and since you're coming up from the south, through Colorado Springs it's not as bad as coming straight over from Cali. Go for it! If you see some snow or sketchy looking road conditions just take it easy. Slow and steady and you'll make it no problem hauling a trailer.

Whenever you do make it in, definitely hit me up when you're ready to ride. I'd love to catch a ride up if you're going to make use of your Epic pass and are rolling solo. I live in longmont but am down to come up and meet you somewhere.

I-70 sucks so bad. I have been stuck on that highway for hours and I hate it. A couple of years ago my friend and I were stuck on Vail Pass for 5 hours. There were wrecks every all over the place, pretty sure some people died. I saw multiple nasty accidents that day. 1-70 shuts down a lot. The gas you will use to get to the mountains will eat away at your cheap rent. Also constantly driving your car on I-70 for miles will increase the wear and tear on your car. I-70 is one hell of a highway. I like not going on it. Weekend warriors can suck it, but we need them for our lively hood.

There are lots of shitty restaurant jobs in the mountains. My guess if you get one in Denver you will be paid less than in the mountains and would be using a lot of gas to get the ski areas. Tourists are on vacation and don't want to cook dinner, so the restaurants are hiring. Has it occurred to you to look at the Colorado craigslist? The Rocky Mountain Colorado craigslist will have job and rent postings. This would give you a good idea on the rent and employment.

I am not scared walking my harmless friendly wiener dog in my Mountain Mexican Neighborhood.
