Breckenridge Mountain Resort reports 8 inches of powder

Friday, January 27th, 2012

That’s right! Breckenridge Resort is reporting 8 inches of fresh white fluffy stuff for your riding enjoyment. Earlier in the week we wrote, there was a chance for 2-4 inches in the forecast and boy were we wrong! First thing this morning we ran outside and snapped a few photos for our blog, and then slid down the hill to the Riverwalk Center to see how the snow giants had fared. Upon first sight everyone/thing looked great, plus a fresh winter coat. Teams were busy brushing off Ullrs bounty and some were even being interviewed by both local and national news stations (Watch your favorite news channel you may see Breckenridge).

 

 

This morning we are strapping on the big Volkls (132 mm underfoot) and crushing powder pillow after powder pillow as the snow seems to be on automatic refill with snow still falling as we type. Look for a video edit in the near future featuring todays antics via our brand new GoPro Hero2 (Please, don’t let us lose this one).

 Call the Pine Ridge office on your way up and speak to Katie in order secure what is left of our rapidly depleting inventory 1-888-840-4170.

Till next time….

Saturday will be a powder day

International Snow Sculpture Championships and POW is in the forecast

You need to install or upgrade Flash Player to view this content, install or upgrade by clicking here.

Fifteen teams of snow sculptors from ten different countries have already begun carving what they hope to be the winning piece in Breckenridge’s annual Snow Sculpture Championships. The teams began the sculpting process Tuesday at 11 a.m. and 65 hours later on Saturday, Jan. 28 at 10 a.m. the teams must be finished with their work. The awards ceremony will take place on Sunday at 3:30 p.m., but curious visitors are encouraged to come and view the process and the final products anytime starting Jan. 24,

Breckenridge is expected to see snow accumulation in the neighborhood of 2 to 4 inches on Friday. Come Saturday, temps will range between 18 to 28 degrees and not a trace of that bone chilling wind we all love/expect. With last weekends snow firmly packed into corduroy and additional snow on the way, conditions are shaping up everyday. What are you waiting for? Pick up the phone and give us a call 1-888-840-4170

Pine Ridge is almost fully booked for this weekend, but we do have a few remaining units. Find our availability here (hit your refresh button for the most current results).
