So envious! Supposed to be low of 30 in EP on friday with a good chance of precip, but I doubt we'll get 2-3 feet!

Anybody heading to silverton to ski this year? I haven't been in a while, would be fun to get back there.

Been watching the temps the last few days. Brrrr. We're headed out there soon. Our "family wheeling" looks to be reduced to Owl Creek and Last Dollar because of the snow. We're ok with that, it's all about seeing the colors and spending time together. The snow should make for some spectacular pics.

Any other reports? Is all the snow above treeline? Was hoping to go up to Clear Lake. Near Black Bear trailhead, about 5 miles north of Silverton.

Steamboat is reporting snow on the mountain.



We are headed there this weekend, for a shake down run with the trailer, Hot Springs Bell ringing and red cup lanterns!!
