    Default Colorado snow... lack of..

    I'm due for Vail next tuesday. They're forcasting no snow....

    Any Locals out there to give some good advice towards where to ski for the best early season snow?

    Not a lot of snow now, but I would expect some dumpage in the next week or so. Loveland and Arapahoe are both pretty good for early season. Usually when Vail opens, it is at least decent. I think UpCruiser has some knowledge of Copper and Winter Park. PM him if he doesn't respond.

    Awfully dry and warm down here in the SW part of the state as well. Wolf Creek is open, but that's about it.

    I've been out over a dozen times, but our resort (alyeska) will open on 11/26. Allways looking forward to more snow.

    Been up to Loveland a handful of times. They opened their 3rd lift last weekend and have maybe 20% of the terrain open. You can count on about half a day of skiing, all on groomed cruisers. You will be bored in a few hours. We are doing a hut trip on the first weekend of December, it's looking more like a hiking trip at this point... It is a pretty lousy start to the season.
