Corn season already???

Sure as shit feels like it! Holy cow! It hit almost 70 today at 8k feet! It was 80+ in Denver!

This sucks! March is supposed to be pow season in CO! So far March has been more like May. I hope this pattern changes but the forecasts I've looked at aren't promising. We'll see... hiking, camping, and fishing season may arrive early this year.

Yeah I hope not, I have my first trip out west at the end of this month at steamboat. I am sure it will still be better than anything I have ever seen on the east coast though.

Been getting it, 24" past 24 hours; added close to 100" to the base the past few weeks. But I like corn...as a former cornhusker.

18 inches expected for this weekend up here and Winter Park so I wouldn't worry too much about it. Seen this happen before where it comes in late in May and early April.

Oh I've been riding slush this past week here in Michigan. We had powder a the Friday before last, but now we've been getting 40's and 50's and some bare spots are popping up on my hill. Not uplifting at all.

18" my ass. With these warm temps and SW flow, we'll be lucky to see 6". I wouldn't be shocked if there's another skunking. I'd love to see that 18" though!

Yeah, that's the nice thing about CO, we can get a big dump all the way up until mid-May or so. Late last April we got a 3 footer here in Evergreen. Last year was really frustrating. We'd get DUMPED on, the slopes would get 3". That sucks.

It's been snowing up here every night just nothing major. When it hits it'll be good but this 80 plus inches of base I'm not worried about.

Yeah, we've got a great base going right now. I'm just pissed because I put the super jinx on us. I finally broke down and bit the bullet and picked up a pure pow slayer. I bought that Charlie Slasher the day before we were supposed to get the last big dump, about a week or so ago. Got skunked. Since I have to work Friday and Saturday with really no way out, I'm sure this will be a good one.
