What’s Going On Here at Marbleski

Hey everyone, lots of things happening. We had a server meltdown, began a new account with a different company and we’re in the process of moving everything and rebuilding the webcam system (the server side stuff got deleted). Also, Google decided to discontinue their mapping tool we used to display a map (see menu above) so we’re stuck for now with simply providing a download of a Google Earth KML file.

That’s it. We’re working on everything as well as enjoying the excellent winter we’re having.

Winter of 2015/2016 Going Well

After a month of traveling out-of-state, the Marbleski.org crew is back in the thick of things. We’re seeing storm after storm hitting the West Elk Mountains, exciting. A nicely bridged snowpack is yielding classic Colorado powder skiing, but the usual Colorado avalanche producers are always lurking underfoot. Our plan, stay aware of new snow accumulations, watch slope angles and terrain, and enjoy.

Know the Quarry Road could be easily closed by storms now that we’re getting a huge snowpack and possible over-road avalanches. Call the Quarry office to check on road, and it’s a good idea to stop in to the office before driving up, to see where the stone truck is (which is hard to pass). Phone numbers and such are available in menu above, FAQ.

Merry Christmas 2015!

Merry Christmas everyone!

Major storm in Marble area last night, continuing with heavy snowfall this morning. Road was plowed yesterday but probably not passable by automobile today due to wind drifting and at least 12 inches of new since last evening. We feel there is also avalanche danger on road due to possibility of avy paths such as Mud Gulch running to road.

Quarry will not be plowing today (Christmas) but says they’ll probably plow tomorrow (Saturday), depending on avalanche danger and conditions of course. Marblecam worked this morning, check it out (menu above).
