I think you're probably right. Either Monday or an all out flop. Hopefully it dumps all day tomorrow.

weather.com isn't showing the snow really blowing up until about 4am. We'll see...

I'll be at Bert for a little while. Planning on skinning up the west side for a lap or two then I'm off to c-lot for closing day at Mary Jane.

The Loveland snow stake cam looks like it is at about 5" now. Probably getting pretty decent up there. Evidently I was about at my limit with a 25 mile ride at Buffalo Creek yesterday. I am spent and I am not making it to Bert today. Hopefully this is not the last powder day of the season. Damn, I do like this time of year when everything is on the table.

Breck has officially given up on their snow stake. 2 inches here, 4 at the basin, looking out the window looks like dust on crust. As I slowly approach the 200 day mark I think this may be one of my last days for a while, unless by some miracle we get a foot over night. If that happens I will scrape myself off the floor and ride.

Loveland's nice. Not really dust on crust, but definitely crusty under the powder. Still coming down, but pretty windy. Tomorrow could be awesome if it keeps coming, especially if you know where to avoid the blown off area.

Loveland is good, but super variable. You hit some of those windblown spots and just have to hang on for dear life.
