Avalanche Work - Delayed Start

There is a lot going on  here this morning. It is a very big avalanche mitigation morning.

CDOT was doing avalanche work on The Widow and The Professor this morning. The Professor had a big slide that just touched Highway 6 putting a small amount of debris on the Highway and dusting stuff down at the west end of the Early Riser Lot. The Widow had a very significant slide putting upwards of 20 feet of snow and trees on the highway. Estimated time for re-opening the highway and opening the ski area is unknown. We will definitely keep you posted about our opening.

Man, what a drag. No way to get there. Good thing no cars were buried!
