Default Reports from the West.

I am assuming lot's of other regions are getting nailed. The Colorado front range got absolutely hammered this weekend. Loveland ski area got over 30", in the backcountry in the Butler Gulch area was closing in on 5 feet. Nipple deep pow. It was stupid. If you fell over in that, you were like a turtle on it's back. On Thursday you could be mountain biking next to the white ribbon, now it's waist deep. I'll try to post up some pics here soon, but I really don't think I got any good ones. It was just nukin' and visibility for cameras was poor.

So how did Cali, the PDX/PNW, and Utards do? I am thinking a lot of snow fell all over this weekend.

This is so strange. Right now I am trying to figure out where the fuck Colorado got all this snow. Typically it's from the PNW or Canada. If not California is where it comes from. We get plenty of snow, but it starts out west of here. Not that I am complaining, it's just that when Colorado is getting hit, typically somewhere on the West coast got nailed too.

You guys are really starting to scare me..Im planing on hitting Park city in March, I know hopefully things will change by that time. But looking at their web site they're reporting 2 trails open As here in the North East its been pretty cold. The lake effect snows have helped with also.

Snowing again in the mountains here. Not very hard at least yet. Most resorts are reporting 2-6" but I believe it's still coming down. Hopefully we get at least a foot out of it.

Hahaha! Now that is a *funny* statement. We were wearing shorts and flip flops in Denver yesterday while it snowing in the mountains. Got to love that we are on the eastside of the divide. That thing acts like a big 'ol shield for Denver. 70 degrees in town, snowing in the high country.

I've got a few pics finally downloaded from Saturday. Since I was solo Cody got the action shots. So here's some doggy pow shots for you to enjoy.









Good boy!

The snow will come to your side of the West big time. No way that Ullr is going to dissappoint me with a crappy season in the PNW when I am coming out.
