The Strumbellas

The Strumbellas know how to plot a long game. The six-piece collective may have rocketed to mainstream success two years ago with their breakthrough hit “Spirits,” but have always been thinking one step ahead. Their new single “Salvation”, marks a stylistic turn from their melancholy, introspective releases. Over a punching backbeat, vocalist Simon Ward sings optimistically of life and the good that it can bring. The band, which is currently in the studio working on its fourth album, is riding high on the success of its last project Hope.

Colorado Snow…

Colorado Snow

BOOK NOW

Expect snow to begin in the northern mountains late Monday night and then most mountains will see snow on Tuesday and Tuesday evening. The best chance for 6+ inches will be east of the divide with 2-4 inches west of the divide. Snow will stop by Wednesday morning, then additional storms will bring snow on Thursday, Saturday, and Monday.Colorado Snow

BOOK NOW

The main creator of snow will be the jet stream high in the atmosphere and winds near the surface blowing from the northeast. The jet stream will create a few narrow bands of intense precipitation, and the near-surface wind direction from the northeast will create rising air and snow near and east of the divide. The location where these two factors combine will yield the highest snow totals.
