We all knew this storm meant business. I knew it, my fellow skiers and snowboarders knew it, and this crazed-looking guy from the weather channel definitely knew it:
Sure, there was a big winter storm headed for Colorado, but where was it going to hit, and when? Living in the southwest corner of the state, it's often feast-or-famine; when the front range ski resorts are getting pounded, sometimes we're dry as a bone.

This storm is hitting right now and will continue on through the weekend, which means an all-out free-for-all on the slopes. Mother nature had us nervous for a while, but it's clear now that we'll have a white Christmas in Colorado, and at this rate, it'll be a deep one too.
