Huge Storm
Sunday, January 09, 2005

California may be getting the big press, but we are getting maximum precip as well here in Crested Butte. According to recent news reports only Silverton has received more snow in the last five days.

At FlyingCracker headquarters we show 30" of free-standing snow in the front yard. This snow stake is four feet high - the snow currently rises to two feet six inches.



Crested Butte Mountain Resort is reporting at nearly four feet of new snow in the last three days.

The Crested Butte Avalanche Center is continuing an Avalanche Warning as of Monday morning.

Detailed analysis calls for continued moisture through Wednesday evening.





Even the front door entry to Crested Butte South-based headquarters is under siege... Roof slides have nearly created a climbable slope up to the peak.
