Brown sky and 5-10 miles of visibility in Crestone. Pictures wouldn't show much.

Here's some photos taken a few minutes ago at Wolf Creek:

The haze is dust still in the air.

This was groomed yesterday.

Last week the snow was pure white sugar.

No pics, but the dust and haze were THICK in Bayfield today. Only 3-ish miles visibility most of the day.

A buddy of mine skied Silverton last weekend and said it was good, so now may be the time to strike before much more melting happens.

More snow in BV today - where is the global warming when you need it.

Walkers need not fear, we've been hit with quite a few bad dust events, so everything will melt out and be dry and boring soon enough.

Until this week, it doesn't seem like there have been any dust events in the Front Range this winter. Yesterday was a bit murky, but today's storm should cover that up.

what a cruel joke with all the snow in the last few weeks. I guess walkers love fire more than snow :x
