^ yes the San Juans are considered southern mtns. All the snowfall has been in the northern and central regions, passing the western slope completely. Some has hooked around to Silverton and Telluride but not much. Here we are 40% at normal snowpack for this time of year.

I look at the snow report for Telluride and here it is, only eight weeks left for the season, and only half the trails are even open. I worry for the many people whose livelihoods depend on a good season, wherever they live.

Well that storm that was supposed to hit on Friday night was a disappointment. It was so warm in Vail today. Pretty disconcerting.

Breck got about 4" over the weekend. It flurried most of yesterday morning, then it warmed up to 35-40ish around noon. The snow was in really good shape, and one more dump should cover most of the rock fields in the bowls.

We didn't get but a trace of rain in Mesa County. The Grand Mesa DID get some snow-thankfully, but just a few inches. And the Powderhorn Ski Area is back to only being open on a Thursday to Sunday schedule only. The local businesses are taking a beating here unless they get more snow. and according to the 3 day forecast it will be no snow. Maybe Saturday.

So this is perhaps a first in my 43 years - Widefield School District 3 closed due to black ice under snow today but none of the districts to the north in Colorado Springs, Monument etc., even had a delay - the snow basically missed them. But yay, Pikes Peak has some white stuff - hope it lasts.

^^^^Agreed! And what is really concerning is the snowpack in the southwest portion of the state which is shown above.^^^^
