Snow depths

There has been a request for information on snow depth at the trail system for both Skyway, County Line, and Ward.  While our grooming team can try to note the depth at the stake located off Highway 65 just before Skyway parking area, these can change dramatically day to day, when we are not up there, or even while grooming.
Therefore, I suggest that trail users who are interested in this information use the following two websites:
Colorado Avalanche Information Center just installed a new site right off Sunset on the Skyway track system.  If you click on the above link, then scroll down to Grand Mesa, and click on Skyway, the last column provides snow depth at that location.
SNOTEL provides a map, where you click on various sites including Mesa Lakes and Park Reservoir.
Hope this helps for those of you who want to stay up-to-date on snow depths -- using the above links is much more accurate than our team trying to guesstimate.

Are you a member of the Grand Mesa Nordic Council?  You can join for as little as $25/year -- click on the following link to join today!
