Pray for Snow

Most of the Nordic areas will close by mid-April so enjoy them now. Grand Lake has officially closed. New and used equipment are on sale at all the areas – time to buy for next year. Snow in the high country is still plentiful so head to the backcountry but avoid avalanche areas and travel in numbers with necessary safety equipment. The Waterboard roads are still a good bet.
