Ski media accolades are showering Telluride right now. FREESKIER’s 2017 Resort Guide featured the southwestern Colorado resort prominently, hailing it as “a skier’s paradise,” and stating, “On a scale of 1 to 10, most anyone will tell you the terrain is an 11.” And FORBES just included Telluride among its World’s Best Ski Resorts, writing, “While some ski resorts excel at one or two things, like cuisine, lodging, diversity, challenge, charm or convenience, Telluride excels across the board and is a near perfect gem… it blows many other resorts out of the water when it comes to what [we] consider the important stuff: quality of skiing, food, lack of crowds, and just like SKI Magazine readers noted, scenery and unrivaled Charm—with a capital C.” You get the picture?

WINTER PARK, Colo. — A teenager died Wednesday after crashing into a tree at Winter Park Resort.

The 17-year-old girl hit a tree on Forget-Me-Not, an intermediate trail in Parsenn Bowl, about 12:30 p.m.

Members of the ski patrol transported her to the emergency room at the base of the resort, but she did not survive her injuries.

No one else was involved in her crash. The girl has not been identified.

“Winter Park Resort extends its deepest condolences to the woman’s family in the wake of this tragic accident,” the resort said in a statement.

It’s the fifth ski-related death at Colorado resorts this season.

On Dec. 19, 48-year-old Kevin Pitts of Longmont died at Breckenridge Ski Resort after colliding with a tree on Alpine Alley run, not far from the Imperial Express SuperChair.

On Dec. 29, a 40-year-old Texas woman died after falling from a chairlift at Ski Granby Ranch that was caused by mechanical problem.

Kelly Huber of San Antonio fell 25 feet and was pronounced dead at a Granby hospital. Her 12-year-old and 9-year-old daughters were injured in the fall.

On Jan. 12, 47-year-old Sean Haberthier of Denver, was reported missing from Breckenridge. The next day, he was found on Lower Boneyard, an expert run not far from the Peak 8 lift.

Haberthier was taken to St. Anthony Summit Medical Center in Frisco where he was pronounced dead of a severe skull fracture after skiing into a tree. He was not wearing a helmet.

On Feb. 10, a 26-year-old man from Mexico died on an advance run while skiing at Breckenridge. The resort’s ski patrol responded to the incident, but the man was declared dead at the scene.

How much snow is too much?

Soldier Mountain Ski Area will be closed Thursday because of dangerous conditions brought about by too much of the white stuff.

A spokesperson said the roads are too dangerous for travel, conditions for avalanches are high, and they have so much snow that chair lifts are buried.

The roads conditions are also making it unsafe for employees and guests to get to the ski area near Fairfield. Some workers reported they were snow in.

Crews are working to clear the chair lifts and get the mountain ready for skiers and boarders. Snow plows will be out soon to clear the main road to Soldier Mountain.

Right now, there is 60 inches at the base and 70 inches at the top of ski hill.

Take a bow Mt. Rose Ski Tahoe. Thus far, the Lake Tahoe area ski resort has received the most snow in North America for the 2016-17 season – a whopping 650 inches.

Thanks to a series of strong winter storms that have moved through the Lake Tahoe region one after another this season, especially the past two months, Mt. Rose Ski Tahoe announced today that it has officially extended its season and will remain open through Memorial Day, May 29.

A Mt. Rose employee shovels snow following a huge series of storms that hit the Lake Tahoe region. Mt. Rose has the most snow of any ski resort in North America – 650 inches.

According to, Mt. Rose has reported the most snow in North America to date this winter. And more snow is on the way. The National Weather Service forecast calls for another winter storm system to move through the region over the coming weekend.

“With this unbelievable season still in full swing, including topping the snow total chart in North America at 650 inches to date, Mt. Rose Ski Tahoe will continue to offer supreme skiing and snowboarding conditions through Memorial Day this season,” said Mike Pierce, director of marketing at Mt. Rose. “For the second year in a row, this marks another six-month ski season and is a testament to our tagline, ‘8,260 – Where the Snow Is.’”

Located on Mt. Rose Highway with a base that’s at 8,260 feet – the highest of all the Lake Tahoe ski resorts – Mt. Rose is situated perfectly when big storms hit the region. The resort had 359 inches of snow fall in January.

Average base depths at Mt. Rose currently total 223 inches on the mountain. All lifts and trails are open as weather and conditions permit, with skiers and riders enjoying mid-winter conditions across the entire mountain.

To go along with its much longer 2016-17 season – a typical season ends sometime in April – Mt. Rose is offering a Spring Plus Premier Pass. The pass is valid seven days a week with no blackouts this season or next. The offer is a good value for skiers and riders who want the flexibility of being able to ski any day of the season.
