Potential BIG storm rolling in this weekend. Too early to sport wood, but I got some chub going on.

Joel has used the words "many feet" to describe what could go down. It's gonna be an upsloper, so Eldora will be the likely big winner along the Front Range, but Loveland, A-Basin, and Winter Park should get some pretty eye opening totals if this thing comes in as predicted.

Fuck, I may be down for putting some tracks on Lookout Mountain.

I am always a little disappointed when "the big one" arrives just in time for it all to get all tracked out within minutes by the hoards of weekend warriors.

I love a big pow day on a Monday. That way you get a few good days with minimal crowds.

But snow is always better than no snow.

If this is an upslope storm and big.... it will be a bitch to get to the mountains from Denver. Might thin out some of the weekend crowd

Precisely. If this thing goes off like it could I'm not sure I-70 will be open from Denver. My biggest "fear" is that Loveland won't be open because employees won't be able to get there. I'll watch the forecast closely. If they're still calling for a huge upsloper, I may bite the bullet and get and get a room in Winter Park on Saturday night and just plan on riding there on Sunday.

Exactly what I'm thinking!!! Get a room in Keystone and go to either Key or Abasin on Sunday!!
