    San Juans are back fully open for business. Eagle county, at least up valley, is still silly dry. Tomorrow looks stormy, weíll see.

    Sprinkled for about 4 or 5 min.....so thatís something I guess.

    We had maybe 1.5 to 2 inches of rain in 25 min Golden Gate Canyon today. Was awesome.

    First, a request for any intel on conditions off Rollins Pass (say Skyscraper) and or Mt Toll/Navajo area. Thanks in advance!!!

    Second, some recent pics from around Jasper in IPW and also looking back at Arapahoe Skywalker.

    South side of Jasper bowl (Gaiterade, Snow Leopard) still filled in, but have significant cornices (zoom in) and no Snow Lion

    The smaller (but still pretty decent vertical) snowfield further east along that ridge is in pretty good shape, just get there early and hopefully can still connect all the way through, working skiers left

    Wow, with the fires here, the low snowpack this past year, making turns this late has not been on my radar at ALL.

    Skyscraper has snow, not sure what kind of condition report you need.

    Some summers are obviously better than others but this year

    So many more fun things to do in July-Oct IMO.

    A crack habit might be cheaper than biking though

    Heavy smoke from the Lake Christine fire in Vail this morning. Vis dropped to less than 2 miles. Throat, eyes, and lungs don't feel too good.

    Ended up riding up in Zuma and air quality wasn't terrible. One of those rides where it feels like it could dump rain any second, but never did. Glad we went.

    95 degrees in Carbondale when I drove through this afternoon, and the Lake Christine fire keeps getting bigger. Jesus H Christ, when are the rains coming?

    Every damn day above 80, wife is talking about getting a whole house fan!

    And this smoke is making life really hard for people with allergies, asthma, and environmentally triggered migraines!

    Some decent rain in EagleCo this evening. Nothing great, though anything is, um, great.

    Yep, we actually had puddles on the ground here in Eagle tonight. My dogs were wondering what the hell was going on.
