First snow of 2011/2012 ski season in Breckenridge. Won;t get too excited, too small to stick and too warm outside still. A balmy 45 today for Oktoberfest. These snows don’t get us where we need to be, but simply remind us all that the season is just a couple of months away, time to get ready!
The Breckenridge snowfall total for 2011 was, in a word, huge! After 6 months of blustery storms, white outs, slick roads, pass closures, icy windshields, and a glorious amount of fresh powder days in Breck, our season is finally over. An average Breckenridge snowfall total is around 300 inches in most years, and that assures quality ski conditions for the entire season. This year, well…. it was better.

Another day, another foot, or two, and I don’t think it is over yet. Actually, looking outside I can confirm it is not near letting up. Looks like the mountain will be full tomorrow, of snow, not people.
Currently the base depth mid mountain in Breck is 63 inches, I expect that to top 75 tomorrow, and it will be dumping all this week.
To date, we have accumulated 236 inches of snow in breck, 255 by tomorrow, which is way ahead of average, and most other ski areas!
This picture is what my driveway looked like at 7:30 tonight when I got home, I hate to shovel, but love to slide around on this stuff!
Gotta love it! Breckenridge is open,not a little, but a lot! Even part of he bowl is open if you want to hike the t-bar. I was up there today (as you can see in the pics) and it was glorious. It is the perfect opening day, 30 degrees, sunny, 34 inches at mid mountain, snow guns blowing, and every bit of the Breckenridge mountain charm in full effect.
Yes, those are people on the lift, ascending vertically to ski Breckenridge Resort for opening day 2010-2011. I would have loved to have joined in, but I had to get back to the office and send this picture out!
