Getting wild out here

Between the wildlife, the rivers that are full of snow melt runoff, farmer’s markets & multiple festivals every weekend, there is starting to be a lot going on up here.

KODI Rafting is running the Blue, Colorado, Arkansas, Clear Creek and (big treat) Tenmile Creek right now. Twin Seasons Vacations guests can ride with KODI for less. As us about your discount!

Blue River at Silverthorne

The elk and moose can be seen in random locations around town.  The two shots below were taken from a car window, as an example of how easy it is to see them.  If you can, come see them and us!  June is heating up with weekend festivals this Saturday in Dillon, Keystone, Copper Mountain and Breckenridge.  Beer, art, music, food, roasted marshmallows, the list goes on.  It is all getting started and the weather could not better.  78F for the high today.  Grab your shorts and hit the road!

SNOW DAY!

For only the second time all winter, school’s out today in Summit County, Colorado, due to 2 feet of snow that has fallen in the last 18 hours.  With more snow on the way, this is an epic storm.

Here’s a pic of a deck that was completely clear of snow last evening.  Now look at it:
Summit County Colorado Snow Day

Spring skiing continues at A-Basin and Loveland.  Though at the moment you may have to wait for CDOT to re-open all the access roads.

 

 



Still snowing!

The ski season is hardly over even after the Vail Resorts properties and Copper Mountain have closed.
It has snowed overnight and most days this week. Here is what fell just this week (so far!) from the two areas still open and experiencing awesome conditions:
– Arapahoe Basin (A-basin) 22”
– Loveland 26”
Here’s a snap of the back deck at one of our properties, that we’ve cleared already twice this week.


The home of amazing Spring skiing

After a relatively warm and dry late winter, spring is turning out to be fantastic. Check these snowfall totals from Monday morning through Wednesday morning:

Breckenridge – 17-18”!!!
Keystone – 9”
Copper Mountain – 8”
Beaver Creek – 8”
Loveland Basin – 8”
Vail – 7”
Arapaho Basin – 7”

Here’s the Breckenridge snow-stake cam as of THIS morning:Breckenridge Snow Cam

And here’s the extended Forecast from our awesome friends at OpenSnow.com:
The next storm will push clouds and a few showers across Colorado on Saturday afternoon, then the brunt of the snow should fall between Saturday night and Monday morning. All models are now forecasting this storm to track over northern Colorado. Total snowfall should be in the 5-10 inch range for favored areas.

 

 



Yes, it really did snow. Quite a bit.

Yesterday we heralded the forecast mentioning a return of winter. It happened. It is still coming down. The Winter Storm Advisory has another 18 hours to run. Which means today and tomorrow are both powder days. AND there’s the possibility of more snow for the weekend as well as next Tuesday..
flocked treesThis photo, taken this afternoon (3/28), is in color, we promise.  This evening as the sun goes down, everything is coated in glorious layers of white and grey.

If you can’t get up here tomorrow, then make a note for next year to come enjoy some awesome spring skiing.  The spring break crowds have mostly left.  Temperatures are warm.  Days are long.  And this is historically Colorado’s snowiest time of year.


Keep the snow tires on. Winter is staging a comeback

Don’t take off the snow tires just yet!  We had some nice snow last Friday, again on Saturday, and here comes even more tonight.  8-16″ is forecast in the next 36 hours at Breckenridge, Keystone, Copper Mountain, A-Basin and Loveland.  Looks like tomorrow and Wednesday could both be powder days.  Don’t write off this winter yet.  Spring skiing is pretty awesome with warmer temperatures and lots of sunlight to go with all that fresh pow.  March and April are traditionally our two snowiest months. Will we see you out there on the first chair?
