Based on this data and skier reports, the top 3 places to go right now are A-Basin, Breck, and Beaver Creek.  The real sleeper in this mix is Beaver Creek, which got 10” on the first day of this storm.  It was an outstanding day on the slopes according to someone I saw at Moosejaw last night.  Breck is looking a lot better, especially now that Peak 6 has finally opened.  A-Basin has had the best base depth so far this season and got the most snow on day 2 of the storm.  For those coming from the Front Range, A-Basin and Loveland Ski Area would be a great choice.  It looks like the jet stream is finally pushing south far enough to bring much needed snow to the Colorado Rockies.  This year is a La Nina winter event and has started out with mild, dry weather.  I expect that the storm track will begin ramping up soon to the delight of (almost) everyone.  Be sure to “like” OpenSnow Colorado on Facebook.  Joel Gratz is a great meteorologist and an avid skier.  His format presents unbiased weather data that will help you plan for a great day on the mountain.  Have fun out there, and don’t forget to book your night at Frisco Lodge, voted #1 lodging establishment for Summit County on TripAdvisor.
