I've got to stop watching 9News and Kathy Sabine gushing about "Lots of powder and GREAT conditions in the Colorado high country!".
I want to smack her.
They must have some agreement with the ski areas to promote it no matter how bad conditions are. She showed some photos of skiers at Loveland so I checked the website. They've received 2" of snow in the past 3 days, 7" for the month. That just doesn't add up to "lots of powder".
Has anyone skied there this week?

While we are definitely hurting for snow, the Loveland pictures are real. Loveland has been opening up new terrain on the Ridge. Porcupine Saddle opened yesterday. Video: Login | Facebook
I skied untracked powder last week at Loveland off the Ridge. But rocks are everywhere. Mandatory rock-hopping to get to the untracked stuff. Got a coreshot coming out at the bottom of Primer Bowl.

I was at Keystone last Friday. They had 3 new inches at the base and 5-6 inches up top the night before. Conditions were pretty good on the ungroomed trails, though I had to avoid some rocks and saplings. The groomers were a little better, but still some slick, har-packed spots. I'm not going again until there's some new snow.

I think Dallas got your missing snow (record 12.5 inches yesterday).

"All of Colorado is snowing today"

Har har. Great dumpings lately! Aspen area resorts have really come around with big dumps abounding.

Snowpack/base readings are solidly up pretty much across the board. Wish I was there to practice my "steep forested mountains deep powder rundowns with interspersed impromptu corpse-pose snow chute slide downs". Just a little backcountry sport I made up. It's really great on peaks where you know the terrain very well.

Okay guys, coreshots, jelloshots, bodyshots, snowthroat, whatever, post your latest Rocky Mountain snowriding observations please...

Lots of powder in Telluride! Skied on 13" fresh Saturday and another 11" fresh on yesterday (Monday). The conditions are great. Did have to wait in one 12 minute lift line Saturday morning, but it's been smooth sailing since then.

The snow has shifted south with the El Nino conditions. Thats why the southern mountains are getting a good amount and the northern aren't. If I remember correctly, there's a strengthening of the subtropical jet stream, which is why our storms have been tracking along the NM/CO border, and why the southern states have been hit, like that storm OK had.
