Agency will require ski areas prove there is sufficient water for skiing instead of demanding transfer of resort water rights

Jason Blevins - The Denver Post

The U.S. Forest Service will not require ski resorts to transfer water rights to the federal government as a condition of operating on public land. Instead, the agency will require ski areas to prove there is enough water to sustain…

Moose Encounters - What Do You Say?

Could I see a moose while skiing at Steamboat?

Yes. The Routt National Forest is home to wildlife of all sorts. The forest is home to Elk, Moose, Foxes, Bears, Mountain Lions, as well as all kinds of smaller animals like porcupines, marmots and skunks.  The Moose habitat in Steamboat is excellent and our moose population is on the rise. Remember you are entering a natural environment; the forest is home to the animals and WE are the visitors.

SafetyWise and Joe Nicholls' Forecast for Thursday, December 31, 2015

Ladies & Gents,

We have gone 5 days since our last day lost to a work related injury.

Joe Nicholls

One system is exiting the area this morning and there could be a little cloudiness early, but overall not a bad day, just a little cold. We'll see an upper level low pressure develop later today and tomorrow over Nevada, and then it'll lift northward with little impact on us over the weekend. A more active southern branch of the jet stream developing next week and the…

SafetyWise and Joe Nicholls' Forecast for Monday, December 30, 2015

Ladies & Gents,

We have gone 4 days since our last day lost to a work related injury.

Joe Nicholls

Nice to see a little snow to freshen up the slopes, and we'll still see a little light snow or snow showers through this evening. The air mass remains cold right on through the weekend, and dominated by more of a split flow. So, while I don't see any significant storminess, we could get clipped by a couple of systems that bring a little light snow. Stay warm! …

SafetyWise and Joe Nicholls' Forecast for Tuesday, December 29, 2015

Ladies & Gents,

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

A couple of weak systems will move across the area over the next couple of days, but the winds are light, the lift to the air mass weak, and thus I expect snowfall amounts to be light. A chance of a flurry early Thursday, but overall a fairly nice pattern through the weekend. As I've mentioned on the video briefings, we're heading into more of a split flow pattern and I really don't see…

SafetyWise and Joe Nicholls' Forecast for Monday, December 28, 2015

Ladies & Gents,

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

Joe Nicholls

Another cold start, but it'll warm and be fairly nice on the mountain today. A couple of fairly weak systems will bring an increase in clouds and a chance of light snow or snow showers tomorrow and Wednesday. I would say more of an impact would be the colder air mass that each of these systems bring into the area, so the rest of the week should see below normal…

SafetyWise and Joe Nicholls' Forecast for Sunday, December 27, 2015

Ladies & Gents,

We have gone 109 days since our last day lost to a work related injury.

Joe Nicholls: A bitter cold start, but not quite as cold across the upper portions of the resort, as it is at the base. Overall though, a nice weather day on the mountain and even tomorrow is looking good and similar with the inversion in the morning. A couple of fairly weak…

SafetyWise and Joe Nicholls' Forecast for Saturday, December 26, 2015

Ladies & Gents,

We have gone 108 days since our last day lost to a work related injury.

Joe Nicholls: The low pressure has exited the region and while we could see some clouds this morning, improving conditions are expected. In fact, the weekend into Monday are looking nice, but a little chilly. A couple of weaker systems drop southward across the area Tuesday and Wednesday, and I'll keep amounts light and see if there's enough lift for anything more significant, as…

SafetyWise and Joe Nicholls' Forecast for Friday, December 25, 2015

Ladies & Gents,

We have gone 107 days since our last day lost to a work related injury.

Joe Nicholls: Merry Christmas!!! The surface low pressure is near the "Four Corners", and is a little behind schedule. I saw a little while ago we had about an inch on the snow stake overnight, but we should see the snow increase through the morning, as this low pressure deepens more over the southeast corner of Colorado. It'll turn to more snow showers later tonight and tomorrow, as the…

SafetyWise and Joe Nicholls' Forecast for Thursday, December 24, 2015

Ladies & Gents,

We have gone 106 days since our last day lost to a work related injury.

Joe Nicholls

The next system moved into the Pacific Northwest overnight and into northern California this morning. This system will shift eastward into the area later tonight and tomorrow with another shot of snow, and could be heavy tomorrow. Once this system moves across the area, a little more of a break in the pattern. We still need to keep an eye on it, as I don't trust…

Any break this morning is looking short-lived, as the next system races into the area later this morning and afternoon bringing another shot of snow!!!! Gotta love it! I believe we will see a break tonight and much of tomorrow, but the next system will move into the area later tomorrow night…

Ladies & Gents,

We have gone 104 days since our last day lost to a work related injury.

Joe Nicholls

The flow of moisture continues into the area, and will I've tried to follow the guidance with some periods of decreased intensities, the main message should be we have several more waves of energy/ periods of snow through Christmas Day. We'll see snow increase again later this morning and afternoon, then another period tomorrow afternoon (with a colder air mass and…
