Denver and the Front range was pounded with snow. 35" in Golden, CO. Wow. Breck is reporting 5". Well I just shoveled 6" from my porch. That took place in in the past 12 hours. Breck looks like another day of underreporting. Another year of days where they report 5" and it is knee deep. I will give an actual report of the snow this afternoon. Afternoon Report. Well, Breck did not receive very much. I am grateful for what we did receive, but heck most places around Denver received 2-3 feet of snow. Airport is closed, and we received 5". Bummer. The weather was cool mid-teens all day. Light snow fell all day long. Today I had the pleasure of skiing with Anirudh from PA. He had never been to the Rockies and it was a blast to ski with him. With the inability of skiers to make it up from Denver, a group lesson turned into a private. We skied 5 chair on Peak 8. Springmeier, Swinger, 4 o’clock run, Park Lane, and Sawmill were our domain.
The snow was terrific. Perfect Colorado Packed powder. Hardly a sound to be heard. I have some pictures from today, including a video of Anirudh. to your sliding success, Jon
