For the past several years we have run a somewhat scientific experiment out in front of our offices on Durant Ave in Aspen, Colorado. We take a picture of the trees and compare. As you can see 2012 appears to be smack-dab in the middle of the years. It appears that ’08, ’10 and ’11 were somewhat behind this year and ’07 and ’09 were ahead. These trees do a pretty good job of telling the story of the previous winter:
The only year we had less snow than this year in the previous 5 years was 2006-07 when we received a pitiful 124″.
- 2007-08 = 400 inches
- 2008-09 = 306 inches
- 2009-10 = 228 inches
- 2010-11 = 320 inches
- 2011-12 = 206 inches
If you are a betting ski vacationer, chances are better than 50% that this coming winter will see over 300 inches of total snowfall. Between now and then we’ll just have to suffer with Aspen in the Summer!
