Eldora Ski Area - Corona Bowl

Latest image from Verne's mobile picture phone. Had to get a shot of our favorite back bowl at Eldora Ski Area. The steep and deep powder in the trees in this area make it one of the most fun snowboarding areas in Colorado!

More wind damage from Jan 8th - 115mph wind event

Latest image from Verne's mobile picture phone. This morning I stopped and snapped a shot of this highway sign along HW93 where earlier this month they recorded wind gusts up to 115mph. That's a catagory 3 hurricane! All caused by chinook winds.

Looking ahead to the early spring chase season

Taking a look this morning at a couple charts at the Climate Predicition Center and liking what I see. The charts above show easing of the drought in tornado alley as well as above normal precip for the southern plains for the next 3 months. As we all know, moisture is the life blood of thunderstorms, and the more the better!

Sears Craftsman 9hp 2 Stage Snowblower

Latest image from Verne's mobile picture phone. On Sunday I called around town and found that the Sears in Lakewood had trucked in Snowblowers for sale. Since the Scout is perpetually stuck in 2 wheel drive we needed something more to get us dug out from this record breaking winter.

Amanda spoke to our neighbor up the hill who said that in 20 years of living in Coal Creek he has never seen a winter like this.

Today we had 115 mph winds (catagory 3 hurricane) that closed hw93, hw72 and US36. It took a road grader 2 trips and 1/2 hour each just to cut through two 9' drifts that had Shimley Road down to two lanes.
