VIDEO: It’s been snowing like mad all across the Central Rocky Mountains and Z Griff has been right in the thick of it. He heads out to Whales Tail, Peak 9 and more on the final day of the snowstorm for nearly 2 feet of fresh. By Friday morning, the sun was out and the trees were still coated in frosty white goodness. Believe us: it’s going to be a killer weekend.

Summit Daily field report: It’s a beauty out here with plenty of fresh snow to ride under blue skies. It’s like a March powder day in January.

Weather: High of 17 F, low of 3 F. Calm and sunny but very cold.

Lift lines: Not bad…yet. Get some fresh turns if you can before the weekend crowds arrive.

Breakdown: The sun is shining and the powder is deep. Just don’t forget handwarmers — it’s been in the single digits all morning.
