So I not only get over $700 of rack & carry system for under $200, but I get $25 to spend on more snowboard stuff and $40 cash to boot. (That will pay for a full tank of gas in the new ride!)

I was concerned I was going to have to spend a fortune to make up for all the gear hauling capacity I lost! Now, I'm covered!

A couple days off, the wife goes to work in a minute, and I have nothing to do except watch the Donkeys and some e-sports, maybe play some video games, drink beer, smoke weed, pass out, zero human interaction....hooray.

the forecast and Joelly-boy if he's right.

Quote:
+ Tuesday and Tuesday night will bring the first surge. A band of heavy snow will stay over western Colorado for most of the day, focusing on the western San Juan mountains and Powderhorn. By the afternoon and evening, this band of snow will finally move across the rest of the mountains. Total snowfall on Tuesday and Tuesday night will average about 3-6 inches. Some areas in western Colorado could see much more if the band of snow stalls, and areas further east along the divide could see less snow if the band falls apart as it crosses the state Tuesday evening.

+ Wednesday and Wednesday night will bring the second surge. Look for snow showers increasing in intensity during the afternoon and evening. This surge will be powered by a push of cold air, not storm energy. This primes the atmosphere to produce on-and-off snow squalls, not consistent snowfall. Many areas could see another 2-4+ inches during these showers.

+ Thursday, Thursday night, and Friday morning will bring the final part of the storm with moist northwest flow. This will focus snow showers across the northern half of the state, roughly along and north of I-70 with some flakes making it down to Aspen. As frequent readers know, snowfall produced by northwest flow is very hard to forecast. Some mountains may see just an inch or two, while it might dump on other locations with 6+ inches. The once thing that is somewhat certain is that winds will be brisk / strong over the mountains of the divide along I-70 during this time.

Here are the best times to ski freshies. Wednesday AM should be fun following the first surge from Tuesday and Tuesday evening, though it likely will not be snowing Wednesday morning. If frequent snow showers do develop on Wednesday and Wednesday evening, the last chair on Wednesday or first chair on Thursday should be good. And depending on how the northwest flow works out, Thursday day or Friday morning could also be fun.

Next weekend will be dry, then another storm is likely for early next week
