In 2 weeks I will be moving from Des Moines, IA to Fairplay, CO....elevation almost 10k feet at the base of several 14k feet peaks....Fairplay is at the northern end of South Park basin area.....which is semi arid .....

I am familiar with mountain weather in general.....I am interested in winter weather mainly....like what types of storm tracks give this area big snows...and what might have to come together to make it happen....

I know overall the humidity will be more like 20-30% vs 80% in DSM....that Im looking forward to! I have also been told that northern fringe of South Park area can see some incredible winds and low temps .....maybe not so much on this one...not a fan of wind! I can handle bitter cold for a few weeks....

Anyway any thoughts?
THX!

I thought we had some members from the mountain region? Nobody has any input here?
