  1. Glad you enjoyed! It's such a great intro to glades. My kids have been doing John Graves glade on West Mountain. They're getting better than me lol
  2. Wait had your snow changed color since falling the day before yesterday??? I'm skeptical of clear weather for the next 2 days with "brisk" NW wind. That's always a red flag in the forecast...
  3. Agree. Once you get to this point I don’t even really care HOW MUCH is falling, nearly as much as the simple fact that it’s falling
  4. Really good snow here too now. I mean, not Jersey good, but good
  5. Lol I hadn’t really looked at the numbers, but yes it seems like they have a while to go
  6. Average depth over the season would show a much more complete pictures. Add standard deviations and you’d really get a different story!
  7. It’s really not that crazy, it’s climatology.
  8. Nice. We’ve been snowing for 6 hours with 0.2” to show for it lol
  9. Love that place!!! It’s as close to a real life Xmas Hallmark movie as it gets
  10. Yes there are quite a few over here. The trees are nicely spaced and they’re not steep, they’re perfect for kids
  11. Can’t get over how nice the glades are. And it’s snowing quite nicely! My kids are having a blast on the T bar. I much prefer the gondola lol
  12. It's been an interesting winter. Lots of small snowfalls which is great, but one thing I'm noticed is that relatively speaking we keep getting the shafts in this area. No complaints really, the difference at the end of the day is not that much and the snow quality has been great, but it seems that coastals just don't want to deliver for us. But hey, if be OK if we continued this way. Better than a couple of years ago when we went into school vacation week with an amazing snowpack only to be wrecked by April like weather.
  13. 3.7" here. Not bad, given I expected "up to 1""
  14. Snow has lightened up significantly. 1.7"
  15. Holy cow it's ripping snow out there. I was not expecting it.
  16. Apparently there’s a bit of a strep outbreak. Didn’t even know that was a thing. I don’t recall ever having a confirmed case of strep. If needed, ConvenientMD in Littleton can have you tested for strep COVID and flu and give you a prescription in about 15’, it’s pretty great.
  17. Been dealing with strep throat (hey, better than COVID) but I did venture out on the mountain today though my body did not feel ready. Completely different conditions than before the storm, but not in a bad way. The snow that fell is extremely dense - pretty much like sleet. It skied really fast! Nice resurfacing in the glades, since this stuff doesn’t get skied off nearly as easily
  18. Ok and just as I talk about downsloping it starts ripping lol. Also a bit bizarre- thermo says 34 but there’s not a drop of melting. Wind ripping though which is annoying - it blows giant chunks of snow off the trees. Rather skip this and head straight for the backside
  19. Nice! As always these setups don’t work for us until the wind shifts. 2” with some pretty serious downsloping. But no complaints, the upslope will come!
  20. We get plenty of white... just not a lot of blue!!! The downside of the upslope zone (you know all about it)
  21. Yeah you could see Mansfield from here like it’s around the corner
  22. What a day! Could see forever.
