    Snow squall warning, that's a new one. Everyone's phones went off, like an Amber alert.

    * At 807 AM MST, a dangerous snow squall was located near Aspen, or
    33 miles southeast of Glenwood Springs, moving southeast at 30 mph.

    HAZARD...Snow and blowing snow. Wind gusts greater than 45 mph.

    SOURCE...Radar indicated.

    IMPACT...Dangerous life-threatening travel.

    Reduce your speed and turn on headlights! During snow squalls, the
    visibility may suddenly drop to near zero in whiteout conditions.

    Serious injuries and deaths may result from people exiting their
    vehicles during a snow squall. Drivers may not be able to see you or
    to stop! If stopped on the roadway or involved in an accident,
    quickly exit your vehicle move as far away from the roadway as
    possible ONLY when it is safe to do so. Do not stand along or near
    the roadway, since approaching vehicles may be unable to maintain
    control.

    Got that in Aspen too. While everyone was looking at the squall.

    Prolly because it is a new thing. Next thing you know you'll be getting these every day in the summer telling you the UV is too high, or the air quality is too shitty.

    I think I got a local one a few months ago for a shooting in Avon or something.

    But as fred mentioned, it is getting real out there this morning in the 80424

    That was a gnarly drive, I appreciated the piercing siren sound from my phone while I was white knuckling it with zero visibility, really added to the experience

    We had a snow squall warning earlier in the season here. It's currently apocalyptic out there.

    Where are you that it stopped snowing? The only thing that is stopped is traffic.

    Yesterday at Copper was good. Very few people, lots of snow. First day on Tucker since they put in the new lift. Way different than it used to be, not as good with all the bumps. Still pretty good though. Especially on a sleeper pow day.

    Drive was definitely gnarly this am, one of the worse whiteouts I can remember driving in. Breck seemed pretty deserted in the morning and was deep in spots. Combination of new snow and wind filled in everything and fresh tracks were abundant. Scored the first seat on 6 chair, did not disappoint.

    Snow squall was gnar driving no joke. But worth it silverthorne to copper. Very good out today. Lapped lots of areas I usually donít ski a lot and they were bottomless and deep.

    interesting. so is their plan that you skin up the road into Dry Gulch and get picked up? or will there be some way to get there from Lift 8?

    My understanding is that it’ll pick up off Awesome. No skinning.

    Can't be, the most southern cat route ends at the currentish rope line north of 8. The easy groomer ("awesome") is pretty close to that point and would be a logical spot to be picked up. Interesting that the northern portion of the project area is outside of their current permit. I'm curious to see if they will move the gate up to that spot (I seem to remember them having a gate there in the past?), leave it where it is (lower), or get rid of it altogether. Either way, that area will be different going forward.

    Huh. I had a fun day off Hagar last year. I think there may still be an ice axe up there with my name on it. I haven't paid a lot of attention; how late in the year will they get to run the cat op?
