But, what we really need is some snow in the foothills. So far it's been a super dry, super windy winter in the foothills. Nothing is getting over the divide. This whole place is a tinderbox with this combo of dry weather and near constant wind. We need a good upslope storm.

linvillegorge Yeah, it's a mid-winter warm spell. Not the first time it's happened and certainly won't be the last. Forecasts for the latter part of February are looking pretty good.

deagol So, it's February and it was warmer in Denver yesterday than Hawaii.
Rain is forecast for Fraser today (nicknamed "the Icebox of Colorado").
We are having wet slide avy danger in the heart of the season.

Yeah, I rode on Wednesday and it was insanely windy in Evergreen that day. One of the calmest days at Loveland of the season.

Storm rolling in tomorrow though. Looks like 4-8" or so for most areas. Guess I'll be waking up early Sunday morning to check the snowstake.

deagol So, in certain spots, this warm weather has lead to the formation of a hard crust in the snowpack. new snow will not bond well to it.

edit (from CAIC):




Very warm temperatures will create dangerous avalanche conditions at lower elevations on Friday. Without a solid freeze last night, the surface snow will quickly grow unstable this morning as the sun rises

This storm could potentially double Keystone's all-time 4 inches from Wednesday!
