Eldora added a good 7 - 8 inches by early afternoon. It made my telemark-turn learning efforts fun. It was amazing how much easier turns happen with some powder, as opposed to packed snow. :-D

Boulder Canyon was closed by accidents for much of the morning so the crowd at Eldora was surprisingly thin.

Found some snow! This last storm provided, getting anxious for some steep spring stuff though!

Meager. Hopefully the storms this weekend pack a wallop and stick around. Especially in the S. Platte River Drainage.

Bump

Did anyone actually get snow with this bout? I saw where they were calling for 6-10 inches in Woodland Park and they would be lucky to have an inch based on the web cam I was looking at.
