This photo is from the 17 Nov 2015 snowstorm that opened our local ski trails prior to Thanksgiving--our earliest opening ever! Although we have a chance for a few inches before Thanksgiving this year, we have a couple more warm days expected that will quickly melt anything we get. However, colder temps and a chance for a decent front-range storm are currently being forecasted.
Breckenridge Nordic is supposedly opening this Saturday, but reportedly has only a ~1/2km loop of man-made snow. Hopefully we'll see more Nordic areas--to include us--get the snow needed so we can start the XC ski season. - Think snow!
