Worst week for me to be on-call and have day long meetings all week. Breck and Copper are getting hammered. Even A-bay is reporting a ton of snow. And of course...keystone is sitting in the snowless vortex.

Does anyone know why this is true? Breck (only a few minutes away) has nearly triple the snow since the first of the year.

From what I understand Lake Dillon is the culprit. Its just about 100% frozen, hopefully that makes a difference. Yesterday I was driving across the dam road from Dillon to Frisco, and it was just cloudy on the dillon side....it was dumping in Frisco and the storm was just hanging there.

Stupid global warming and stuff.

I forgot to write anything here. I was in Colorado From Dec 25th to Jan 5th. and wow it was amazing. They had two snow storms during that time. I heard it was even too much snow for Colorado standards.

Driving up and down the I-70 can be pretty dangerous at times. Especially if you're going to Vail and passing Vail Summit Pass when it is snowing. I was stopped there several times for avalanche control. There usually are traffic on I-70 especially on the way back. Grades up and down, you can see so many cars broken on the shoulder. I even saw a Subaru Impreza WRX smokes coming out of his engine. It's a manual car prolly burned the clutch i felt sorry for him since it's an expensive car. Right after that my stupid car (2013 ford focus) gave a transmission overheat signal. I had to stop for like 30 min.

One mistake I did while going to keystone is that I exited on 216(if i remember correctly) and it goes all the way up to the Loveland pass from there you go down to reach Keystone. And man driving up to Loveland pass and then down man it's scary. Especially I made a mistake on the very same day going back to my brothers house, I end up on the same way back, travelled up and down the Loveland pass around 5:30-6pm, I was really scared!!!! lol lesson learned. (especially driving up that stupid rental ford focus)
Actually I later learned that I didn't need to take that exit, If I would drive up some more, there were other exits that goes to Keystone.

I have been to all epic pass mountains, vail, beaver, arapahoe, keystone, breck, man they are all fricking amazing and make the mountains in the east a joke (fudge it even killington)

here's a picture of proving how much snow up there

breckrenridge, January 4th, Imperial Expressway lift, (imperial bowl) - I was only able to get there once, later in the same day they closed, or the other times I went to Breck Imperial was closed. Snow was up to my arse crack

Well today did not suck. Feel bad for the people that comprehend Breck when over half the mountain is on wind hold. Man it was good, so good.

That wasn't technically a mistake. I always take Loveland Pass when it's open to get to Keystone. It's generally faster due to all the fucktards that ride their brakes the whole way down after exiting the Eisenhower tunnel on the Western side. It's also way faster on the way back when they start doing metering.
