Colorado ski areas on and around the Continental Divide picked up some nice additional snow yesterday and last night, which closed Loveland Pass late last night (it’s still closed, by the way).
Snow is still falling and is expected to fall, at least lightly, for about half the day today. Following that, the forecast calls for clear skies, but windy, so keep that in mind when you head up there this week.
Then, the next chance for snow rolls in late this week and into the weekend. We’ll see what the next system brings after this, how much and where and give you the latest as it comes in; we’re hoping for the best (as always).
As noted in yesterday’s report, look out for various road construction projects at the Twin Tunnels before you get to Idaho Springs, then at Georgetown for rock fall fence work. Details on when to avoid these areas, if you can, are at www.cotrip.org/roadWork.htm.
