I used up my last ski day from my pass yesterday at Copper Mountain, where the last day of the season had the best snow I saw all season. I think they had 18 inches or so within 48 hours, it was great, and especially for end of season conditions. The weather was perfect too, not a cloud in the sky. At home in the Springs is was close to 60, and almost no evidence of our storm remained when I got home. Technically, there are still a couple of ski areas that remain open. Arapahoe Basin is famous for staying open as long as possible, and Loveland also stays open a little longer. These are small ski areas, the main areas are all closed now.
The moisture of the last week has got some green starting to peak through on the lawns. It won’t be long and the trees and bushes will start leafing out, and it will start looking like spring for real. Golf season got it’s start interrupted by the weather this week, but the area courses should be filling up again shortly. Hiking, biking, tennis, catching a baseball game, a whole new season awaits! With temps in the upper 60’s and mid 70’s, should be a perfect outdoor week.
