I put this page together so that I could easily monitor data from multiple sources for a trip to Colorado. It consists of a series of links to other sources, with refrences to the sources provided. Of course, I make no claims about the accuracy of the data. Use it wisely, and more importantly use common sense.

I'd be glad to add other useful information, if you have any good additions, let me know!

Let me know if you have any good additions.

Please note that these are live links to data from other sources. When these sources have technical difficultites, it will "roll downhill" to this page as well. I will keep an eye on the source pages and remove links that stay broken for more than a few days. The Ski Cams are often on the fritz.


Longs Peak Cam

Current conditions on the North Face of Longs Peak. This pic updates from a live webcam every few minutes. The cam occasionally has technical problems and will malfunction. Also, it is live, so obviously it the picture will not be clear in whiteout or darkness.

This is linked from Zeitcam. This site also archives the live pics for a time-lapse. Handy for scolling back over a year.

Bear Lake Mesowest Data

Mesowest monitors a station at Bear Lake. Include time-series temperature data. Link.

Niwot Ridge & TundraCam

TundraCam is a CU weather observation station at 11,600' on Niwot Ridge in the Indain Peaks 14 miles south of Longs Peak. It has an interactive camera that you can control over the internet. You can see many recognizable features including Longs Peak, Denver, Navajo Peak and other peaks in the IPW.

Their page for current weather conditions is excellent. Some valuable real-time observations from this page include:

Another good reference for the area is the Niwot Mesowest page from a station recording at 12280' near Lake Isabelle.

Grizzly Peak MesoWest Page

Grizzly Peak has a MesoWest observation point at 11,100' elevation (link).

Some great information here, including these time series temperature charts.
