    Jon, I’ll be you’ll git sum soon. La Nina weather is supposed to favor north or south Colorado, not central, we’ve just been on the fringes of some north stuff. I’ll bet you’ll get hit pretty soon and we’ll get missed or be on the fringe of that.

    Great pow shots. Here in S.W. Colo. we’re starving for it!. F.Y.I. the fix is in up in Telluride with the F.S. caving to land grabber Tom Chapman. It most likely won’t stop any core b.c. rider. It’s just another glaring case of capitalism stealing the publics rights. I’m a little in the dark about how the F.S. closes gates that are controled by the ski corp. I know they run the lease, but comments from T.ride offices sound like they are going to fight it…
