SafetyWise and Joe Nicholls Forecast for Friday, September 26, 2014

Ladies & Gents,  

We have gone 26 days since our last day lost to a work related injury.

Joe: Another nice, and warm weather day on the mountain! We'll see the moisture increase tomorrow and unstable enough for a couple of showers and thunderstorms in the area later in the afternoon and evening. Still looking like the better chance of measurable rain will come on Sunday and Monday, as the area of low pressure moves slowly across the area. Another cold front later Tuesday…

SafetyWise and Joe Nicholls Forecast for Thursday, September 25, 2014

Ladies & Gents,   We have gone 25 days since our last day lost to a work related injury.

Joe says: An area of low pressure is off the West Coast,  but continues to progress eastward with a strengthening southerly flow into the region today and tomorrow. This will tap into a very moist air mass down over southern Baja, and Mexico leading to an increase in showers and thunderstorms this weekend. As always, timing from this source region is a little more difficult, then add into the…

CDOT bids miss mark for Berthoud Pass remote avalanche control system

Jason Blevins - The Denver Post

There won't be any remote-controlled avalanche mitigation on Berthoud Pass this winter.

After two years of public vetting and study, the Colorado Department of Transportation in April began advertising for companies to install a Gazex remote avalanche-control system in a slide-prone gully that threatens U.S. 40 on the east side of Berthoud Pass. The…

SafetyWise and Joe Nicholls Forecast for Wednesday, September 24, 2014

Ladies & Gents,   We have gone 24 days since our last day lost to a work related injury.

Joe: Good morning! A couple of sunny and warm days, but the low pressure off the West Coast will be shifting eastward, and by the weekend, we'll see showers and thunderstorms increase and our temperatures cool off significantly. Just for example, we'll see the 700 mb (around 9500 feet) temperatures go from +13'C on Friday to +3'C by Sunday! The cooler than normal temperatures will likely be…

Perception equals reality in skier surveys

Scott Condon - The Aspen Times

Most Aspen-area skiers and snowboarders agree the local slopes offer some of the toughest terrain to be found. But, for whatever reason, that’s not the image all visitors share.  

Such is the frustration of ski-area surveys — visiting skiers and snowboarders might not see our ski areas the way we want them to be seen. But perception is reality. One of the oldest and most closely…

Ladies & Gents,

We have gone 23 days since our last day lost to a work related injury.

Joe Nicholls: There's still a lot of cloudiness over the area this morning, and we could see a sprinkle, but the drier air mass will move in through the afternoon. The next area of low pressure is taking shape about 600 miles off the West Coast and will continue to grind eastward over the next couple of days. The southerly flow will be increasing by the end of the week bringing an…

SafetyWise and Joe Nicholls' Forecast for Friday, September 19, 2014

 Ladies & Gents,

We have gone 19 days since our last day lost to a work related injury.

Well, I'm not all that impressed with the front moving into the area today, so I've decreased the chance of showers and thunderstorms. We're still fairly unstable this afternoon and early evening and there will be some showers and thunderstorms in the area. We should have a nice weather day tomorrow, but the moisture returns on Sunday and Monday and this period is looking like our best…
