OH to be in Coloroado right now....
Look at these totals...
72-Hour Snow Totals as of 1/8/08 are:
Heavenly: 96 inches (that's not a typo!)
Beaver Creek: 29 inches
Vail: 25 inches
Breckenridge: 13 inches
Keystone: 13 inches
Wow. What fun what fun......
Before I get schooled here.....My mistake I know Heavenly is in Tahoe. Sorry for the error.
Still that is a lot of snow!
Looks like oldensign is on the peaks mail list
try skireport.com - nice global daily update on fresh pow. Every now and then you will even see our local hills make the list.
5 feet- again- at Wolf Creek CO.
kirkwood in tahoe reported 122" from the past weekends storms, and just got another foot last night i think! colorado is having its best start in years tho too i think. someone mentioned the third bowl in crested butte is already open and didnt open at all in recent years?

Yeah? Well I drove home from work last night with the top off my Jeep...so there.
The weather here really blows.
my friend goes to school at boulder and decided to go up 5 days early and snowboard at breck.... meanwhile i am sitting here with all the resorts melted down and my race canceled this weekend due to lack of snow. I think i chose the wrong state to go to school
langleyskier, You do live....Happy New Year!
You might have chosen a better school for cold weather and snow, but for meteorology, PSU is well respected!
You of all people should be positive and telling DCSkiers about future snows and when winter might return (er..get here and stay for a few weeks). We need you man!
Not only the wrong State, the wrong half of the Country.
Yeah, even 'close only counts in horseshoes' doesn't apply!
And don't discount Utah, where anywhere between 60-80 inches of snow has fallen in the past week or so. And it keeps coming down, too.
The drawback of all of the snow? Avalanche danger. As such, a lot of the popular terrain has been slow to open.
Alta had record snowfall in December, and has experienced tons this month already, with lots more on the way. The present and honest base a mid mountain is 112 inches of packed Utah soft as baby powder sugar.
I am seriously thinking of going there next week.
