In case you haven’t noticed it’s snowing around much of the state and is supposed to snow all night. In fact, there’s a good chance for snow every day through Thursday. Wolf Creek has upped its 24-hour total to 14 inches and 72 inches in the past three days.
The only problem on the mountain roads so far today was a car-sized boulder that fell onto the westbound lanes of I-70 near Glenwood Springs. Fortunately, no one was hurt and it appears the boulder has been successfully removed.
However, given the snow coming down, be extra careful on the roads if you call in sick tomorrow, or Wednesday for that matter.
In other news today, Winter Park Resort announced a 48-hour (really 40-hour at this point) lift ticket sale for as low as $60 a day, almost half the window rate, but quantities are limited and the deal only lasts until 8 a.m., Wednesday, Jan. 30. Both single and multi-day tickets are available.
Tickets can be purchased for any remaining day in the 2013 season, including Presidents Weekend and Spring Break. For more information or to book tickets on-line, visit: www.winterparkresort.com.
In conjunction with the lift ticket sale, Winter Park is also offering a special stay-and-play lodging deal. For every night of lodging booked, guests get a $50 dining voucher good at any restaurant at Winter Park Resort. With rooms starting at $119 a night, that’s essentially a room for $69. The offer is valid for stays from now until March 31.
Heavy snow is expected to hit Winter Park hard this week, with some forecasts calling for up to 17” between now and Thursday night. Winter Park reports two inches in the last two days with “excellent conditions” on a 39-inch base.
