Seems like the common story for today. Heard the winds on Elbert were bad too.

This was down below the summit. It was MUCH worse up higher. The wind blew me over a couple of times.

Got to love winter. Did you get a wind speed by chance? What is it projected for today?

Heading to Yale tomorrow- 40-45mpg with 65 gust. Should be fun.

I don't have an anemometer, unfortunately. I would have estimated it as 25-30 MPH sustained with gusts as high as 50 MPH -- enough to knock me over.

Yale for tomorrow:

Sunday: Sunny, with a high near 35. Very windy, with a west wind 30 to 35 mph increasing to between 40 and 45 mph. Winds could gust as high as 65 mph.

I don't plan on skiing down, I am going to jump and make a parachute with my jacket and float down. :mrgreen:

Keep in mind that forecast is for 13,163 ft., so you have about another 1,000 feet to go. :wink:

This was on Geneva Pk:


And near Webster Pass:


But the worst was between Landslide Pk and PT 13214. Didn't think to get a video as I was a bit scared for my life. :lol:

We skied Loveland today. It was windy with blowing snow, especially early. It calmed down some later in the day. The lifts on the north side were closed more than open. I didn’t keep track of the closures since I had no intentions on going over there.
