Ajax Peak appeared to be missing it's peak earlier this week. The yellow construction area is the site of new luxury residences named Element 52. I'm very glad the red crane is not a permanent fixture. The ski run Kids Hill and the gondola are just to the right of Element 52. I think the construction has created quite an eyesore for close to a year now, but will be a beautiful place to live. I was totally focused on the sky when I took this photo, and got a little distracted by the crane!
Regarding the blizzard that has caused a state of emergency in the Denver area, for the most part everyone is safe and sound in our part of the state. We are so far southwest that we didn't really experience blizzard conditions. There were a few car wrecks but no major injuries that I've heard of so far. I guess the ski resort areas are always prepared for large amounts of snow. Denver and the rest of the Front Range received so much snow in such a short amount of time that it really crippled the cities.
