Headed to Outdoor Retailer Trade Show

Post by WildSnow.com blogger | August 2, 2010      

Hands on the steering wheel in a few hours for the drive through the furnace to Salt Lake City to cover Outdoor Retailer. Have lots of appointments to check out new gear and work on support so we can keep WildSnow going. Stay tuned. I’ll blog the show as much as possible, then file a few more posts once we return to WildSnow HQ.

Meanwhile, we were over in Crested Butte, Colorado for the weekend and continue to be amazed at the warm monsoonal weather we’re getting in central Colorado. Crested Butte felt like Galveston, Texas. Well, perhaps not quite, but almost. Looking back at the last decades, I don’t recall a period of this type of weather going on for more than a few days, this one is going on 10 days or so. Climate change? Perhaps. Let’s just say that one pattern like this in early winter could set up Colorado for the best backcountry skiing season in years. We shall see.

    The Pyrenees haven’t had a summer yet this year – humid, wet, stormy weather – no sun to speak of at all. Russia has had the worst drought in living memory, the blocking high pressure system there is affecting the weather all over the globe.

    Wouldn’t a repeat of 2007-2008 be sweet!
