HypeBeastI mean tree wells are already there; I saw tons when I was skiing last month. But yeah I like your assessment. If anyone can get up to the mountain towns before the storm, they'll be in for a treat if the resorts are open. I70 is definitely gonna be locked down. I'd certainly expect snow immersion risk to be high too. Every time California or the pnw gets snow this deep you always hear about someone suffocating in the middle of a wide open run cuz they fall and the snow is too deep.
Be careful out there folks. Have a blast.
Be sure if you do want to stay to CALL NOW AND GET RESERVATIONS!!!!! Any time I-70 closes all the hotels book up and its a shit show. I got stuck on the wrong side of Eisenhower tunnel once and luckily we had some family visiting CO that had a room already because everywhere booked out literally within 20 min of the closing. It was a cluster fuck because it was my Sister in Law, her husband, their toddler and my Wife, my toddler and I all crammed into a double queen room.
Lol the hotel reception got so pissed from everyone calling they literally would answer with, "Hi, this is Mountain View Hotel... we dont have vacant room." then just hang up on me.
