May not be a lot of snowpack this winter for the dust to melt, go to:

Ocean conditions likely to reduce Colorado River flows during this winter's drought

After the pine beetle kill, the shape and dynamic of the headwaters of the Colorado is certainly seeing dramatic change.
It also seems to me the quicker the melt the less time for evaporation into the atmosphere hence higher accelerated runoff. I don't understand the rationale of loss of run-off.

Sorry, just realized this had been addressed earlier.
