Today’s Colorado ski and snow report: Closed Again, Naturally

See also

Once again, Loveland Pass is closed due to “adverse conditions,” which I suppose includes the inch or so of snow that fell on the pass last night. Is it just us, or does Loveland Pass close a lot more often now than it used to in the past?

It’s quite possible we’re being nostalgic for a former Colorado with fewer people who knew how to drive and didn’t engage in the rat race, and fewer road closures, but we really don’t recall the same frequency of road and pass closures. Now it seems that if gets cloudy over Loveland Pass they’re closing it.

Oh well. That means if you want to go to Arapahoe Basin, which has picked up the most snow over the past five days, you’ll have to take the long way around, through the tunnel and back up via Dillon and Keystone. Whatever.

As you can see in the snow report below, not that much fell last night, but it continues snow a bit this morning. The next snow potential state-wide is Wednesday into Thursday. After that, the forecast calls for the possibility of snow, particularly in the northern and central mountains, all through the weekend.

Stay tuned for more info as the week wears on. In the meantime, here are the 24-hour snow totals with the five-day totals in parentheses…
