Local Snow Reports

Okay, I can honestly say I don't always believe what the mountains report for new snow fall. Any Colorado locals out there in Mountain Towns who can verify the reports or give an accurate report? I live in Eagle/Vail and work in Vail. Vail and Beaver Creek reported 7-8" and I would agree with them. Though, it is dumping like a mo-fo up here and there is a massive storm coming from Telluride/Aspen and the South-West. Predictions are about 2ft by then end of Wednesday. I am not sure if I believe it but will keep anyone posted who is thinking about heading this way. POWDER! Stevesie.

As of this morning the pass wasn't too bad, Summit County is getting much less snow than Vail Valley. It is open as of right now and the snow is dumping. Hard to get work done when I am looking at the front runs of Vail and can hardly see anything

www.cotrip.org : is a great place to look for road conditions and closures. If it continues like it has been there might be a good chance they will close Vail Pass. I will keep you posted and safe travels. SteveZ

Ok. Vail is reporting now 14" of new snow fall in the past 24 hour..... and I believe it. It has been snowing all freaking day and, as endomass put it, the jet stream is pointing a huge storm right through the valley here.

Erdvm: Vail pass is open as of right now. The only closure at this point is e/b I-70 near Idaho Springs from an accident earlier, they are re-routing through the town.

I'm also skeptical of snow reports and use multiple sites to try to get the real deal. Check out http://www.snowforecast.com/

I also look at:

http://www.crh.noaa.gov/product.php?...r&issuedby=BOU

This is for the frontrange but the Nat. Weather Service out of Grand Junction has a Local Storm Reports page as well that extends to the divide.
