Beaver Creek blasted by state-best 8 inches as weekend storm set to bring more

By Real Vail

It was Beaver Creek’s turn for a surprise powder day on Thursday, as the resort 10 miles to the west of Vail topped the state with 8 inches of new snow. Vail chimed in with 3 inches new that seriously softened up the slopes after a fairly warm and dry week.

And best of all, significantly more snow is in the forecast for this weekend, with both Vail and Beaver Creek expected to receive anywhere from 5 to 14 inches of new snow between Friday night and Monday.

Last week, Vail enjoyed a surprise Thursday powder day that was under-reported at 9 inches but skied a lot more like two feet. This week it was the Beav’s turn.

According to, Wednesday night’s pasting was just the beginning of a snow cycle that will last throughout the weekend, with more than a foot of new snow possible and Sunday likely the best powder day.

“Then it'll be dry Tuesday/Wednesday before another storm slips through on Thursday/Friday of next week,” reports meteorologist Joel Gratz. “The second half of February should produce more consistent chances for snow with a favorable pattern setting up.”

All of that will help with the state’s below-average snowpack, which currently stands at 72 percent of normal. Locally, nearly three feet of new snow in late January helped push that number closer to 74 percent, and the in the San Juans – where the bulk of the late January snow fell – snowpack is at 88 percent of the average annual amount.

Beaver Creek, which earlier this week opened parts of its Stone Creek Chutes area, has seen nearly 11 feet of snow so far this season. Vail has been a little ahead of that pace with about 12 feet so far. Both areas average more than 25 feet of snow each season, and February, March and April tend to be three of the snowiest months.

Vail will keep all of its front-side lifts open until 4 p.m. starting Friday.

One thing I’ve noticed is that there are plenty of fallacies regarding the banking companies intentions if talking about foreclosures. One fantasy in particular is the fact that the bank needs to have your house. The bank wants your money, not your house. They want the money they gave you having interest. Preventing the bank will undoubtedly draw some sort of foreclosed final result. Thanks for your post. buy 5-meo-dalt

Build a chicken coop that is tall and has multiple long and high perches. Unlike large standard chickens which tend to hang around at the bottom of the coop due to their excessive weight, small bantams can easily jump up to the highest perches, giving your chicken coop plenty of space to keep more chickens. Build plenty of perches, nests and feeders so that the bantams can jump around from perch to perch and eat from any part of the coop. bulk chicken sale
