Guess What Came In The Mail Today? [Edited]

That’s right….this year’s first issue of Powder Magazine! I already got two phone calls from friends asking that question before I was able to find our mailbox….the anticipation is palpable. You have to understand that for those of us that believe in ‘never summer,’ getting the first issue of this season’s ski magazine is like a holiday, birthday, and celebration all rolled into one. One of my friends even bailed on everything that he had planned for the afternoon and read the magazine from cover to cover. By our calculations ski season is (hopefully) less than 60 days away!!!!

Additional as of 6pm: Check out this forecast from our local NBC affiliate!!!!! Woo Hoo!!!!

According to 9NEWS Meteorologist Ashton Altieri, a powerful cold front will first pass over the state on Thursday before the main storm arrives on Friday. Scattered showers and a few isolated thunderstorms will develop after the front passes and temperatures will drop into the 70s for highs along the Front Range on Thursday. As cool air settles into the state and scattered showers continue, freezing temperatures will drop down to about 10,500 feet on Friday, meaning some high country locations will see the rain change into snow by Friday afternoon.

Locations such as Rocky Mountain National Park, the Indian Peaks Wilderness, Berthoud Pass, and Mount Evans could see up to a foot of snow. However, the warm ground will prevent much of that snow from accumulating. Seasonal roads above 11,000 feet such as Trail Ridge Road will likely have to be shut down on Friday because of the snow.
