Plows were out in Ouray in the late afternoon, clouds were all over town, and then the sun was out in Ridgway. Amazing how the weather is so local! So good to see snow on the mountaintops and it's only the beginning of December.

It's been snowing all morning here south of Cortez. This in addition to about 6 - 8 inches that fell last week. Looks like we might get an actual winter out here at long last! Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow! YAY!

Vail was awesome today. Great coverage on the mountain. Light and soft. Great start to the season.

I'm flying out from Atlanta to go to Snowmass Jan 31-Feb 3rd. Flying into Denver, I've heard some horror stories about traffic on I-70.

That being said, is it really that bad? Flying in on Thursday I'd imagine going towards Aspen won't be terrible, but coming back from Aspen to Denver to grab my flight out ( 6pm flight - I made sure I had a buffer ) on a Sunday, what can I expect/look forward to?

Waiting in line for her T-bar at Breck. I’d estimate the upper mountain got about 6”, the lower mountain around 3”.

Will any part of The Front Range have a white Christmas? From the forecast, looks like "no". I do know one thing, many people in the Denver metro area want snow for Christmas....not just cold weather.
