I agree Nathan, and in fact I was predicting a late May peak, but with light snow and cold temperatures for a week now I think we will be looking at first to second weekend in June for peak on the Ark.
My references to Fremont Pass bode well for the Colorado too. The headwaters of Tenmile Creek, East Fork Eagle and the Blue are all right there. Looked like fantastic coverage for backcountry skiing. Looked to me like the water that has come down at this point was from below 11,000' and south facing slopes.
