SafetyWise and Joe Nicholls Forecast for Monday, June 30, 2014

Ladies & Gents,

We have gone 6 days since our last day lost to a work related injury.

Still looking at a couple of really nice days on the mountain with lots of sunshine and pleasant temperatures. We'll see the moisture return, as the air mass heats up from Thursday on through the weekend. We're not looking at any kind of weather system, just air mass type of thunderstorms developing with the peak heating each day, then diminishing rapidly in the…

SafetyWise and Joe Nicholls forecast for Friday, June 27, 2014

Ladies & Gents,

We have gone 3 days since our last day lost to a work related injury.

I'll have to look up the normal temperatures for Steamboat, but Park City has a 79 for a normal max temperature on the 27th of June, and here we are around 60!! The front is just into our area at the present time and we'll see showers and a couple of thunderstorms develop with rainfall amounts in the tenth of an inch to a quarter of an inch through around midnight. A drier, and more stable…

SafetyWise and Joe Nicholls Forecast for Thursday, June 26, 2014

Ladies & Gents,

We have gone 2 days since our last day lost to a work related injury.

The   cold front/wind shift just moved into Salt Lake, and it'll make it into the Uinta Mountains this afternoon and near the Colorado border or just inside the border this evening. It kinda stalls just to the west of us and it'll wait for the upper level support to move across us early tomorrow morning. It's fairly unusual to see this type of system at the end of June! The front moving…

SafetyWise and Joe Nicholls' Forecast for Wednesday, June 25, 2014

Ladies & Gents,

We have gone 1 day since our last day lost to a work related injury.

A little cloudiness over northern Colorado and Utah this morning, and can't completely rule out a brief shower or even an isolated thunderstorm, but the chance is really low. There is an area of low pressure just off the Oregon Coast this morning, and this system will be shifting into the Great Basin later tonight and tomorrow, so we'll see an increase in the west-southwest winds tomorrow,…

SafetyWise and Joe Nicholls' Forecast for Tuesday, June 24, 2014

Ladies & Gents,

We have gone 20 days since our last day lost to a work related injury.

In looking at the air mass today and tomorrow, just enough moisture and instability to throw a low chance of a thunderstorm in the forecast. The dew point temperatures are fairly low, and the bases of the clouds will be fairly high, so not too concerned with precipitation amounts, but do keep an eye out for an isolated thunderstorm or two. A very weak upper level system will increase the…

Winter Sports Club tells Steamboat City Council that Howelsen continues to be home

Scott Franz - The Steamboat Today

When the Steamboat Springs City Council first learned the Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club was planning a new training area on Mount Werner, some concerned council members wondered what this meant for the club's future at Howelsen Hill.

"My initial concern was that we were going to find (Howelsen) still being utilized by the Sports…

SafetyWise and Joe Nicholls Forecast for Friday, June 20, 2014

Ladies & Gents,

We have gone 16 days since our last day lost to a work related injury.

The satellite images show a weak system moving across the interior of the West with mainly some high clouds over Utah and Idaho. The air mass is still fairly stable today, so we should be warm and dry. The weekend will get a little more complicated with a couple of weak systems moving across the area, and the air mass becoming more unstable. So, I've increased the chance of a couple of…

Forest Service backs off controversial water clause in ski-area permits

Jason Blevins - The Denver Post  

The Forest Service has backed away from a controversial plan that would have required ski areas to transfer water rights to the federal government in exchange for a permit to operate on public lands.

The agency on Wednesday unveiled an anticipated revision of a 2011 permit clause that a U.S. district judge overturned in 2012 after ski areas sued…

SafetyWise and Joe Nicholls Forecast for Thursday, June19, 2014

Ladies & Gents,

We have gone 15 days since our last day lost to a work related injury.

Joe Nicholls: The clouds and showers moved across the area, but rainfall amounts were very light, and scattered. The air mass has dried out and the lifted index stays positive all day, so we should have a lot of sunshine and some warmer temperatures. A weak system will move down the eastern side of the Rockies this weekend, and most of the convection will be east of us, but our lifted…

Our view: Embracing vacation homes

Saturday, June 7, 2014

We support the city of Steamboat Springs’ ongoing efforts to regulate and tax vacation rentals of homes, apartments and condominiums in an even-handed way that puts everyone on equal footing.

That’s in stark contrast to Routt County’s antiquated and haphazard method of pretending it doesn’t know that it has regulations that ban nightly rentals until someone complains. The county’s approach could…

Safety Wise and Joe Nichols Forecast for Tuesday, June 17, 2014

Ladies & Gents, 

We have gone 13 days since our last day lost to a work related injury.

The cold front is into the Uinta's, but the eastward push is very weak. The upper level low pressure is over the Pacific Northwest and pushing into the Great Basin, and will continue eastward across us later tonight and tomorrow. The winds at 700 mb will remain around 30 to 35 mph through the afternoon, and the surface gradient should be strong enough for another windy, warm day. The…

Our view: Cyclists camped in the grand ballroom

A big slice of the Steamboat Springs resort community went to extraordinary lengths last week to allow the venerable Ride the Rockies bicycle tour to make a two-night stop in Bike Town USA. We think resort leaders and their lieutenants deserve recognition for the diligence and collaboration that was required.
