No one’s slagging the white-ribbon-of-death. Early season turns appease, however slightly, the incredible ski jones that if left untreated, sometimes leads to involuntary stabbing of nearby folk with your ski pole. Yep, skiers must ski or somebody’s gonna have to die. Better man-made snow than no snow at all. Better riding a chairlift than staring at one.
To appease is not to satisfy, but thankfully the prophet of hope, Joel Gratz, has posted a prophecy this morning for a week filled with Colorado snow.
Many mountain locations could pick up double digit snowfall totals before the week is out, and the cold weather should stick around for the better part of 10 days. My view is that any snow in November is a bonus!
As for his spiritual brothers just to the west, the snow has already begun blessing the 45th state in the Union. Below is a cam shot from Alta this morning. Northern Utah and southern Idaho lined up first and are receiving first dibs from the storms this week. Building a base, it’s not just for politicians.
