John F. Russell - The Steamboat Today

With the opening of Steamboat Ski Area less than a month away, Tuesday morning’s chilly temperatures offered an opportunity that snowmaking crews could not pass up.

"It’s always exciting when snow covers the mountain especially this early in the season and we crank up our snow guns for the first time,” Doug Allen, vice president of mountain operations for…

SafetyWise and Joe Nicholls' Forecast for Wednesday, October 29, 2014

Ladies & Gents,      

We have gone 57 days since our last day lost to a work related injury.

A gentle reminder; since snowmaking has started, all snowmaking areas are closed. Grooming machines, snowmaking equipment and unmarked hazards may be encountered at any time. Uphill access is not recommended. This includes runs at the base of the area.

Joe Nicholls: A strengthening temperature inversion over the next couple of nights with the low pressure along the West Coast…

SafetyWise and Joe Nicholls' Forecast for Tuesday, October 28, 2014

Ladies & Gents,     

We have gone 56 days since our last day lost to a work related injury.

I should have reported our 5.5" of snow at T Head and 8" at PHQ yesterday.

Joe Nicholls: A chilly start to the day, but gradually warming over the next couple of days. A system will pass mainly to the north of the area later tomorrow with minor impact, like we could see a little breezy winds in the afternoon. An area of low pressure will be just off the West Coast on Friday…

SafetyWise and Joe Nicholls' Forecast for Monday, October 27, 2014

Ladies & Gents,         

We have gone 55 days since our last day lost to a work related injury.

Joe Nicholls: Still some clouds and snow showers in the area, but these should decrease fairly early this morning. The 700 mb temperatures will be around -7'C today and -5'C overnight, then steadily warm through the week resulting in a strengthening inversion. Another area of low pressure near the Aleutian's this morning will move southeastward and be along the West Coast by…

SafetyWise and Joe Nicholls' Forecast for Friday, October 24, 2014

Ladies & Gents,        

We have gone 52 days since our last day lost to a work related injury.

Joe Nicholls: The flow has backed in response to the energy pushing into the base of the trough, and that puts us in a mild southwest flow over the next couple of days. The cold front will move into the area on Sunday, and the moisture and lift will increase the chance of showers with the snow level lowering later Sunday night and Monday. The overnight models had more of a west-…

SafetyWise and Joe Nicholls' Forecast for Thursday, October 23, 2014

Ladies & Gents,       

We have gone 51 days since our last day lost to a work related injury.

Joe Nicholls: Very impressive looking area of low pressure covering the Gulf of Alaska and much of the eastern Pacific this morning. We'll see a mild southwest flow of air for the next couple of days with a little bit of an increase in moisture early Sunday for some showers. The colder air arrives later Sunday and Monday, and will lower the snow levels to the base, but the amount…

SafetyWise and Joe Nicholls' Forecast for Tuesday, October 21, 2014

Ladies & Gents,           

We have gone 49 days since our last day lost to a work related injury.

The upper level low pressure is over north central Nevada with a weakening front shifting across western Utah. The front will continue eastward, and even weak, it should provide enough lift for showers and possibly a thunderstorm this afternoon and evening. The activity becomes isolated to widely scattered late tonight and tomorrow, and we'll wait for the next system to develop…

Colorado mountain resort projects emerge from torpor of the recession

Jason Blevins - The Denver Post

Big high-country construction projects are emerging from a nearly six-year hibernation.

Investors are freeing the flow of cash. Buyers are stepping up. And in Breckenridge, Vail and the Roaring Fork Valley, large-scale condominium and hotel projects in limbo during the recession finally are sprouting.

From the wealthiest enclaves of Aspen to the…

SafetyWise and Joe Nicholls' Forecast for Monday, October 20, 2014

Ladies & Gents,          

We have gone 48 days since our last day lost to a work related injury.

The cold front is along the West Coast this morning and will progress eastward making it into our area tomorrow afternoon and evening. We'll see showers and a chance of a couple of thunderstorms, as this weakening system moves across the area. Once it exits to the east, we'll see a couple of days break, then another cold front will reach us on Sunday with a cooler air mass and…

SafetyWise and Joe Nicholls' Forecast for Thurssday, October 16, 2014

Ladies & Gents,         

We have gone 45 days since our last day lost to a work related injury.

Joe Nicholls: The low pressure that was moving into the Pacific Northwest yesterday, is now over northeast Montana and shifting eastward into the northern Plains. The satellite images show considerable cloudiness over the West, but very little organization and lift. So, I expect clouds will come and go…

SafetyWise and Joe Nicholls' Forecast for Wednesday,

Ladies & Gents,        

We have gone 44 days since our last day lost to a work related injury.

Joe Nicholls: Good morning! The first forecast of the winter format, and it'll take me a little bit to adjust from the summer format. I already had started calling up the lifted index, so time to shift modes!  We start off with a fairly deep and cold area of low pressure just along the West Coast with considerable high…
