Sadly you are correct. Im holding out hope that last year's fires will save my little neck of the woods this year. Most folks I know remain prepared to bug out on a moments notice. I continue to do the snow dance & shake my rain stick daily. It's shaping up to be a brutal season. Where the hell is that El Nino we were promised????


Where do you live?


Just outside of metropolitan Conifer.


Conifer is gorgeous. I almost bought a house in Evergreen last year, but decided to stay closer to work and get something in Denver.

Yay!!! Less then a week away!!!

So, this is an El Nino winter.



Actually, not an El Nino winter. The Climate Prediction Center canceled that back in December when the forecast Pacific warming failed to occur. Re. the mountains....actually had some decent snow the past week or so. I was up last weekend and it was good to very good. Of course they can always use more...nothing like freshies to keep the fun going.

As for snow here along the Front Range --- the latest models are showing the potential for a good snow event here by Thursday. Of course, as DM has pointed out, the weather forecasters here are notoriously wrong. Best advice if you are coming: keep watching for the latest updates and prepare for anything.


Yeah, it's a week away. If they call for snow now, there's just as good a chance that it will be 65 and sunny as well.

And why can't we have a little snow this week in Denver to add a little spice to the event???? LOL.


Because some of us are OLD? Besides, I just moved to Virginia from Buffalo, NY. First time in my life that I'm not in Buffalo for the winter...and I LIKE IT!

Thanks Phred for the update. I missed that. It still feels like El Nino, that's for darn sure. I have been working in the mountains for almost 30 years now and there is now a 6th sense that comes with that.

Let's hope for a little new snow storm next week (okay you all........up in the mountains not in Denver) just to give us a fresh surface to slice up. I just got my skis tuned and they skiing like I am rails right now. Wohoo!! Let's go fast!!

So when does the prediction game start???

My bro and I have been jokin for weeks that we are getting a Bertha opener. Ran in to a rain storm.......

Woohoo! One week away from guaranteed Furthur! Happy to get away from all this snow on Long Island, for the snow in Colorado. I'm still on the outside looking in for Ogden unfortunately...so if anyone could help (lol) it would be greatly appreciated!

If anyone else has Amazon Prime, you should check out this sweet deal:

www.amazon.com/Live-Warfield-San-Francis...amp;keywords=furthur

Four bucks, shipped. Hard to argue with that. I wish I had found it sooner so that I could bring it on my trip.
