An Epic Week of Powder

On Friday, January 20, 2006 the temperature was at 11 degrees Fahrenheit with 12 inches overnight on top of 9 inches the day before which comes to a total of 21 inches.

The tops of the mountains were above the clouds with 3.5% moisture content according to ski patrol.

The conditions equaled a "perfect storm" for Snowmass because of no wind and no avalanche closures!

There were fresh tracks until 1:30 PM - very few other powder hounds this day!

Check out the powder-packed pictures from Snowmass.

Aspen: 2 O'clock in the afternoon and how was your day in the office?

Aspen / Snowmass Resort has had almost 2 feet of fresh powder...we decided on Thursday to step out and see if any was left to ski.

The resorts of Aspen/Snowmass are notoriously uncrowded by design. Four mountains and over 5,000 acres of terrain. You know you have something good when you do not have to wait in a lift line to ski untracked, light dry Rocky Mountain powder.

A few people from the office found some stashes to carve. Bill, President of Stayaspensnowmass.com get's some work done on Aspen Mountain.

Snowfall 30% Above Average

The Aspen / Snowmass area has reported over 16 feet of snow since Thanksgiving, and over 3 feet of snow since New Year's. That being said, this winter has been the best skiing conditions that we have had in years. Local weather experts have said that with those numbers and their reports, the Roaring Fork Valley is several inches above the 30-year average. Yesterday, the mountains reported over a foot of snow and there is a new storm on the way this Thursday, January 19th. It just keeps getting better, and it looks like the above average percentage will also be getting better.

Winterskol begins Friday, with the Apple Strudel downhill race at Aspen Highlands, and free strudel for all of the participants. The events continue with a vintage costume contest, a Kidsculpt snow sculpture contest, fireworks, concerts, and much more.

Locals Enjoy Weekday Powder

As the holiday season nears an end, the crowds have lessened while snowfall has accumulated. Sunday afternoon, the snow began to fall and up to 10 inches of fresh snow was enjoyed by many locals who began their work week with a few turns in the fresh powder. Base depths have accumulated up to 80 inches of snow, providing amazing coverage. There are still a few powder stashes to be discovered, but with more snow in the forecast there should be enough untracked powder for all to enjoy.

Lots of Snow = Lots of Good Skiing

The snow continues to fall and the skiing conditions just keep getting better. New Year's weekend brought powder conditions, and while I enjoyed first tracks on Highlands Bowl, on both Sunday and Monday, others found secret powder stashes on the other three mountains. On Sunday, Highlands bowl opened late afternoon and there were few skiers who found their way to the top of the peak to ski the untracked runs in G8 and G7. On Monday, the clouds parted and the sun was shining, making the powder conditions in the bowl hard to beat.
