New Snow in Breckenridge!

Friday, October 4, 2013 by Mark Grattan_Wow! Breckenridge and Colorado’s High Country are currently getting pounded with snow. It really feels like Mother Nature wants to get a jump on the 2013/14 ski season. Today’s snow is the 3rd significant snowfall the Breckenridge area has received in the last few weeks. There have been whispers of this year being a truly epic winter but after today’s snowfall everybody will be roaring about it. The Farmer’s Almanac is forecasting a huge winter for the whole country. For Colorado, the almanac suggests more snow in early October as well as into November along with colder temperatures. We are starting to see this play out now

Arapahoe Basin and Loveland Ski Area have started their snowmaking operations will open mid October. That’s weeks away! Breckenridge Ski Resort and most other ski areas will be starting up their snow guns shortly. What happened to summer?

Well it’s time to start looking forward and think about all of the winter fun we are going to be having soon!
