BEAVER CREEK OFFICIAL REPORT: 5″in past 48 hours, 36″ in past week.

SNOWCAST: It’s supposed to be a mostly sunny day today with a chance of snow Thursday, according to the National Weather Service.

REPORT: To me, it feels like the coldest morning on the mountain of this wonderful, 150-inch season so far. It’s a beautiful bluebird day, with the sun heating things up, a bit. There’s still lots of powder around from the 3 feet in the past week.
