Snow on the way for the Steamboat Springs Ski Area and the bears are getting restless.
I'm dancing for snow.
We really need snow here in Steamboat Springs. Any precipitation will do. Rain, snow, we'll take it. The ground is dry, the rivers are low, the reservoirs are dwindeling. What we need is a good old winter with tons of snow. We also need it because the bears are getting restless and need to den up for the winter. See video below. And pictures of bears here.
"Steamboat Springs — The slopes of the Steamboat Ski Area above 9,000 feet could see as much as 1 to 3 inches of snow overnight Friday into Saturday as a complicated, two-phase storm system takes over the weather in Colorado’s northern mountains. The National Weather Service in Grand Junction is forecasting a 70 percent chance of showers in Steamboat Springs on Friday night and Saturday with an overnight low of 28 degrees Fahrenheit, but little or no snow. The forecast is different above 9,700 feet on Mount Werner during the same period where the chance of precipitation will be 80 percent and the overnight low is expected to reach 22 degrees, producing snow that will at least temporarily stick to the ground.
