All we got in the San Juans is dust. Nasty, filthy dust. Oh, how the tables have turned.

Didnt notice any dust in Silverthorne or at Abasin this morning, though now that I look at my skylights there is a little bit of an orange tint to them. Winds at the top of Abasin were really moving today.

If you're coming for the climbing, it'll be worth it. If you're just trying to find good turns, hit up the open ski areas.

yea the dust won't be apparent after we get new snow, but it's going to screw up the spring melt quite a bit which is what we don't need given the drought/water situation.

Anyone have any pics from the SJ's with regards to the dust? Trying to figure out the weekend.
