Is dust melting Vail Valley snow?

Vail Daily staff report
Vail, CO Colorado

VAIL VALLEY, Colorado –If you remember the pink snow that fell in Colorado’s Vail Valley last year then you have already experienced “dust on snow.”

This next Water Wise Wednesday session on March 24 will feature Chris Landry, executive director of the Silverton, Colo.-based Center for Snow and Avalanche Studies, which also is home to the Colorado Dust-on-Snow program. The program aims to help water suppliers determine whether dust makes the snowpack melt more quickly.

Waterwise Wednesday begins at 5 p.m., March 24 at the Eagle County Ambulance District building, 1055 Edwards Village Blvd., in Edwards.
