Less than a month of real winter and already it’s ‘A winter to remember’

Ski conditions at County Line and Skyway Nordic areas have improved a bit since this photo was taken 10 days ago and the trail work done in recent years by the Grand Mesa Nordic Council will help immensely when snow does come.

If you’ve been following the recent weather trend, it’s apparent the last month or so has been somewhat out of the normal when it comes to snowpack and average daily temperature. That’s true whether it’s too much snow and cold in the East or not enough snow and not enough cold in the West. It’s enough to make many of us remember the winter of 1976/77.

Here, we offer a link to John Orr’s blog and his recent presentation of what writer Allen Best (whose site Mountain Town News is well worth following) is calling a winter to remember but not why you might think. Best’s original story, posted Jan. 5, is here.
