The Colorado Freshy Status

fresh powderIt’s been hit or miss(a lot of miss) for much of the Western U.S. in the early part of winter. But the optimist in me is saying that all this means is we have loads of snow to look forward to.

I just received a first-hand report on the snow situation in Colorado right now, and it sounds like this last round of storms left them in solid shape right now. Our 5ones friend, Erica Cahn, dropped this beat on how things are shaping up for riders in Colorado. Anyone still searching for a destination to bomb for christmas vacation may want to keep this in mind-

For much of the Rocky Mountains, the barren brown mountainsides have finally turned white. Just this week, Breckenridge boasted over 3 feet of new snow, along with snow falling all over Colorado’s Rockies ranging from 2-4 feet! New runs are finally opening after the never-ending pre season drought seen from October through November. The wait is over, snow is here! Vail already has 66 of its 193 runs open, while Beaver Creek has 25, and Breckenridge has 28. Most which have opened just this week! Need more of a reason to take your gear out and set your alarm clock? And just a tip for you 5 mountain pass holders: Imperial chair, the highest chair in North America, is set to open this Saturday with 4 feet of that fresh, Colorado champagne!
