Here in Estes, we got SLAMMED! There was just shy of 2 feet on the back deck. Same thing at the hotel down by the lake.
I can't even imagine what the park got...and it's not done! They're forecasting an additional 4"-8" tonight after 9:00pm and continue into
tomorrow.
And it's not even that cold out!

Loveland, Vail, Berthoud, and Kenosha passes all closed. I might need a head-clearing ski day tomorrow.

Driving I-70 to Utah was a nightmare today. So it should be awesome skiing once it settles...

No photos... Too busy trying to avoid all the pile-ups - just imagine a white image. :lol:

I only got shots of my snowboarding wife yesterday, so obvs no one cares to see that. :wink: I'll try to take a few tomorrow if I make it up. Currently it's nipple-deep on the dogs in the back yard and still pounding.

Loveland was amazing today...14" more on top of yesterday's 14". The ridge was hard to ski bc of visibility but down off 1,2,4 was so deep. More on the way hopefully!
