Winter Weather Advisory for Summit! They are predicting 4-5 inches to fall on Monday. I never even will have a chance to wash my truck since there is still some snow on the road.

Hurray for snow.

Stuff is definitely getting better. I have had several glorious days in the backcountry this season. 11 for 11 on powder days. Buffalo Pass was glorious last weekend.

Going back for seconds...

can't wait!

P.S. does anyone have an idea of how to provide some cold/weather protection for sponger606's hand in the cast? His glove wont fit, so what's the warm-alternative, a hefty-bag?

The only thing I could think of is to perhaps cut up a big sock and make it glove-ish...

SNOWBOARDING!!!!

So most of the forcasts say there won't be any storms coming through after this New Years storm. I'll be in Summit County area the 9th - 14th. I'm going to be screwed, no? Everywhere will be pretty much packed powder by then.

The "January thaw". Seems like it happens every year.

All in all, January isn't the best month to plan a CO trip. Generally not a great snow month but almost always bitterly cold.

It's been colder than a pimp's heart in Summit. The forecast is looking scary again. I am going to wash my truck once all the snow is off the roads. I will even polish all the chrome and vacuum the inside out. It will likely snow once I do that, especially if I polish the chrome. Ullar hates it when my truck is clean.
