Blizzard Warning

Ok....I just got a phone call from the mountain with some updates regarding what's coming our way. The Grand Mesa is currently under an Avalanche Watch, Blizzard Warning and Winter Storm Warning.

This storm is expected to bring heavy snow with high winds. If winds get too high with low visibility, we have to shut our lifts down for safety reasons. Roads could also be very bad.

Bottom line is, it could be an epic day BUT if you are coming please be prepared. Check the road conditions, leave early, take your time and have the proper gear in your vehicle. Please call our snow report tomorrow morning at 970-268-5300 as I will give an update on what we know at that time for snowfall, winds, temps and road conditions/closures.
