I always get a little nervous when forecasters start backpedaling, even slightly right before a storm. Usually the best indication of a storm is the direction of the fine tuning of the forecast just before the storm hits. Rarely do the forecasters readjust their amounts enough. If they start backpedaling, they usually don't backpedal hard enough. If they start bumping them up, the usually underestimate just how hard the dumpage is gonna be. Right now, they're dialing it back a little bit. The next two days are almost certainly going to be very, very good. I'm just no longer sure that this is gonna be the storm of the season like it was looking like it had the potential to be, which is honestly fine by me. Either way, this storm should kickoff a lot of good terrain opening up and this time of year, that's the most important thing to get out of storms.

Well, hopefully the backpedaling is incorrect. The snow stake at that terribly cold, windy place is showing 7" already. Tomorrow gonna be gooooood.

I think the snowfall from this storm may be lower but it looks like it should snow on and off the rest of the week.

Just broke the Charlie Slasher out of the garage. It's time. I just hope I-70 is open tomorrow morning.

The only time I've been out is 4+ days after it's snowed...now I have long work days until Saturday again. Damnit!

I did find a ton of fresh pow lines at Monarch the other day. Tons of lines between the trees, can't believe no one hit them. Really cool little resort and the people there were awesome.

My buddy was up from Texas and he's a badass skateboarder but has never snowboarded and dropped his glove on a black diamond run off the lift. LOL...I watched him slide on his butt to get it and told him "if I got your glove, you wouldn't have learned your lesson" haha. If anyone is going to be at Monarch NYE let me know, shooting a video part for a skate/long/snow movie.

Brecks sitting in a cloud and has been all day. Easily 5 plus around town probably more up on the mountain. Storm of the year? Eh. Storm of early September? Definitely.
