Exclamation Snow In The Forecast

It's looking like it is going to snow (at least a chance) everyday in the near foreseeable future around the Loveland Pass. Snow everyday until next tuesday? I'll take it . 7-Day Forecast for Latitude 39.68N and Longitude 105.88W (Elev. 11018 ft) Is this a sign that the weather is finally turning for the better? Not just Colorado, lot of the country seems to be finally getting snow as well. Maybe January is starting to look better for a lot of us.

This week and next are looking decent for snow fall. The trick is will we continue to get moisture for February and March.

I've ran into a couple of seasons with bad starts. Then it started snowing like hell in January and just evaporated as soon as the month was up. In 98, we got a few storms in Feb, but March was a doughnut. I think it was the 04 season that we got dick for February. Neither one of those seasons were as bad as a start as this one. So hopefully snow will come down consistently from here on in. At the very least, resorts should be getting close to 100% of their terrain open by the end of next week.

The storm that's hitting the West right now is sort of a meteorological anomaly, but basically that high pressure bitch that was pushing all the weather away left allowing this huge ass saturated mass to roll in.

Really, that soon? That would be absolutely awesome but it still seems like some places have quite some ways to go before they have decent enough coverage to open. I'm keeping my fingers crossed on this one. I have been dying to finally hit up some bowls and some hike-to off piste stuff this season.

This is why I already have a "sickness" planned for this Friday and next Monday. Planning on riding everyday Friday - Monday. Right now, I have a shade over 40 hours of PTO and I'm about to start another job. Every powder day in the forseeable future will have me feeling a little under the weather in terms of the job.

I can't see Loveland getting the ridge open by the end of the next week. I guess it could happen, but I just don't see it. That ridge needs A LOT of snow to be viable. Hell, chairs 4 and 8 aren't even running yet. I'll be happy if we can just get most of that terrain open from this wave of good weather.

Crap man, I've got close to 120 hours of PTO saved up for this season, but this is not quite good enough for me to call in sick. If we get the snowfall that is talked about, maybe after next week.

I am probably going to pull the trigger on another week in Washington for March this Thursday. Then I'll have at least one hooky day a week for Feb, plus a mini trip to Silverton or Utah. Hopefully the season will go out firing.

They fucked us this year. They changed our PTO big time. We used to get 7 personal days a year on top of our PTO and we had no cap on our carry over. They took away our 7 personal days and capped our carry over at 40 hours, so I ended up taking a lot of PTO fishing days in the fall.

I had the perfect job, but it has slowly evolved into the job from hell. Hence why I'm out.
