Travel Disclaimer: While we would love to help you make decisions on whether to drive over the pass, plan your trip or predict if planes will be able to take off in Durango on a particular date, we don’t have the resources to do so…plus it puts us in potential legal liability if you go flying off Wolf Creek Pass when we suggested it would be a good day to travel!

Forecast discussion…

Yet another trough is passing to our south today, leaving us high and dry. Our next trough arrives on Thursday, giving us our best chance for seeing 1-2 inches of snow before high pressure begins to build in for the weekend. We could see 1-2 inches of snow between today and Friday in the valley and 2-4 inches for the mountains. Looking further down the road, signs continue to look good for some decent snow storms in early February.
