Winter 2019/2020 On the Menu

Hello all. Marble is looking good. The Quarry’s ongoing road improvements are wonderful (thanks Quarry) and last year’s record avalanche cycle widened some of your favorite runs. Stay tuned! We’ll be going through this site and updating all information. Suggestions welcome.

Welcome Winter 2018-2019

We can say with 99% confidence this winter will be better than the last… Webcam is operational, ongoing work installing a dish heater to make the cam more reliable (it tends to malfunction during large snowfalls due to snow on the dish).

Road is in good condition thanks to Quarry. They appear to be going strong so expect reliable plowing. Remember to park with thought for the large haul trucks.

Thanks everyone for your help with all. Be safe.

Main avalanche paths on Quarry road.

Figured it would be nice having a quick way of pulling up the Schofield Snotel data, so we added a page and a menu item above. The page is here.

We created a simplified 48 hour, hourly chart with only snow depths and temperatures. Idea is to speed up your data browsing to you can get out skiing sooner.
