Here in Denver, we’ve been digging out of a storm for the past few days. This also means we’ve been skiing and riding as much of the fluffy stuff as we can. Among the staff here in the shop we’ve laughed our way through fresh snow at Keystone, Vail and Loveland Pass. We’ve been covering each other’s shifts, and waking up early so we can come in a little late. This is shaping into a pretty good pre-New Year season.
We want to make a quick shout-out to the dude we turn to most often for our snow forecasts: Joel Gratz at OpenSnow.com. In case you’re not familiar with Open Snow, it’s a website run by skiers, for skiers (or riders, etc.). The catch is that the skiers who run this site are also meteorologists and they put a great effort towards figuring out where the snow will be, when it will be there, and what type of snow day we can expect on the slopes. Joel is the guy we turn to when we’re trying to decide if we’re suddenly going to get sick and hit the road at 6am for first chair. They offer content like this:
Joel does a great job here in CO, and the Open Snow team is spread out all over the country. If you haven’t already, check it out.
Thanks, OpenSnow, for giving us the best snow forecasts you can!
