Notice no skis in the racks?  Yeah, people are out skiing the new pow.  There’s not even a footprint at this lodge.  Arapahoe Basin webcam at 9:30am today

12” of snow fell at Colorado’s Arapahoe Basin last night.  Today is a full-on May powder day in Colorado, and we’re very jealous.  In April, these big powder days were awesome, now that’s it’s May, this is simply impressive.  The Loveland Pass area of Colorado got about 120” of snow in April and has now gotten 33” in May so far and it’s not over yet.

Colorado is truly holding it down for the rest of the North American ski/board world.

In Colorado, A-Basin is the last ski resort still open and it’s a damn good one.

If you’re headed into the backcountry, have a blast, and be super safe.  Persistent weak layers still exist.

Colorado Avalanche Forecast:

The added weight of the wet snow (and rain) may also stress the ongoing threat/problem of deeper persistent slabs near and along the Front Range, the Aspen, Sawatch and Summit County zones. The new snow will be wet and will quickly add weight to old weak layers including those deeper in the snowpack. An avalanche cycle at the end of April serves as a reminder that weak layers remain in the snowpack. We still cannot rule out the threat of deep slabs.” – CAIC, May 9th

Have fun, rip it up, and stay safe.  We’ve gotta say thanks to Colorado for keeping our spirits strong at the end of the season.  We wish we were out there with ya.snow forecast CO
