Looks like United has cancelled all flights in to Denver today. They're allowing the few planes there now to depart. Must be ugly. What are other airlines doing?

I just heard they are planning on closing down operations at DIA, period.

I am currently right next to Centennial Airport...and it is bad...the visibility has gone way down with in the last 1/2 hour, down to less than 1/4 mile and will worsen. Blizzard conditions are expected to continue (lots of 40+mph winds)throughout the rest of the day and they are now saying we will accumulate up to 22-inches of snow.

It's not too bad on the west side of the Springs now, however I just came back from work in Teller County, and we had about a foot on the ground already by 10:00am. Hard to tell for sure, since the snow was going mostly sideways. I'm sure COS is getting hit hard, an employeee on the east side of town was reporting a whiteout with 8 inches down already.

DEN A2287/06 (12/211) - RUNWAY COVERED BY DRY SNOW TO A DEPTH OF 07/25 8 IN LOOSE SN 20 DEC 17:10 UNTIL UFN

I presume that's an un-plowed runway, since its use would involve about a 35 knot crosswind given DEN's current winds...

I believe that was tested in March of 2003 plenty fine, but this will sure strain it too.

Fort Collins (~70mi. north) was no snow at around 8 AM and now has about 2-6 inches (dunes vary depth).
It looks bad here.

UA pulled the plug on DEN ops earlier, however Frontier (FFT) tried to operate a few more hours, but now seems to be grinding to a halt also.

Safest/Best thing with the heavy snow an gusting winds is simply call it a day, and try again tommorow.

It's winter, it's the Rocky Mountains, it's the very high Great Plains...

Sometimes humanity has to stop and admire the handiwork of Mother Nature. We can plan for a lot of things, but she has the final say.

Off hand, I think DEN, ORD, and MSP probably have the best large-scale operations for dealing with winters (here in the U.S.), meaning that they are used to these kinds of snow storms. In a few days, things will be back to normal.

DIA is so big it seems to make it's own weather. I have often flown through raging snowstorms and as soon as we cross the outer marker, it's clear. Also departed in clear skies and as soon as we climb over the fence, we're in blinding snow.

I can, however, recall one bad blizzard that I was lucky just to miss and be able to get to DIA and catch, literally, "the last flight to SEA for the day". Fortunately it was a 777 so they were able to pack it to the gills and get a bunch of folks out.

Hmm, I didn't know that one...What I was really trying to say was that it was a plenty hard test for it. Thanks for bringing that up.

In case anyone cares, Poudre School District rarely EVER closes the schools (Heck, I bet DEN closes completely most times before PSD does) and they are closing about...NOW! (2:00PM) and probably won't open tomorrow.

You won't make it. The airport is already talking about canceling all flights tommorow as well, and city of Denver is issuing a "all employees go home" order.

Snow is falling here at a rate of 2inches a hour, and that's expected to continue for 24 hours since 10 this morning O.o

119 Post contains links F9Widebody : APA and DEN appear to still be closed, but BJC has opened...look at all the traffic pouring in and out: http://flightaware.com/live/airport/KBJC Let's
120 NZblue : Just got a call from crew scheduling advising SJD is cancelled for tomorrow. Looks like I just missed my entire trip!
121 AirEMS : I know from this thread that CO is sending 777's to DEN is UA or F9 sending any other heavy metal to DEN to catch up?? or due to the time of year is t
122 Bicoastal : F9.....heavy metal??? Hmmm....that Frontier A380 has yet to be delivered. As far as UA goes, it's Christmas. I doubt they have any widebody lift avail
123 Litz : Unless, of course, the crew in question is based in Denver and therefore hasn't done anything for two days ... 'course as soon as they time out on ho

125 BA : Only eastbound, westbound is still closed.
126 PIA777 : I finally got thru today after a 48 minute wait. PIA777
127 Tcfc424 : One of the questions I have...and forgive me if it sound a little ludicruous, but I really don't know... Could UA free up some 74's from the desert an
128 OPNLguy : Longer that the people stuck at DEN are willing to wait, I can assure you of that.... Assuming that they don't already have new jobs/careers and are
129 TCFC424 : Thanks OPNL...you are always a souce of information that is widely respected...I knew WN flew to Stapleton, but I wasn't sure what their time was like
130 Hiflyer : KDVR video of DIA being shown live on CNN pipeline...looks like less than half of Concourse C has aircraft...half of B and almost all of A...UA777 was
131 Post contains links Flyinryan99 : Appears the first flight is on its way as of 12:30 eastern time. JetBlue 123 http://flightaware.com/live/flight/JBU123 Only one I found in the air at
132 N766UA : According to the FAA's site DEN is still closed. That would make it 2 days straight, would it not? What's going on out there?
133 BA : It will reopen at 2PM EST. This is the longest closure in the airports history.
134 Neilalp : Besides 9/11? I'd assume
135 BoomBoom : I have a question. For people who made reservations months ago to travel from DEN today, will the airlines put those people ahead of those who have be

139 Post contains links F9Widebody : First flight out of DEN: http://flightaware.com/live/flight/FDX3623 Looks like he went off 7...that's a long taxi, or perhaps 8.
140 Osiris30 : What is it about FedEx they ALWAYS get out first after a closure.. I love that.. the first chance they get.. they are gone...
141 Goldenshield : DEN is in a pretty nasty flow control program. Hopefully times will improve as runways open.
142 Gyojoo : Probably that plane had its cargo loaded into its belley for last 2 days. Cargo doesn't have to be offloaded, kept warm, re-loaded, settle down, fast
143 Osiris30 : It was the same back in ORD a week or two ago.. the second the weather allowed them to get off, they were gone. And it's *always* FedEx, not any of t
144 Flyinryan99 : Read on one of DEN's news stations they *should* have up to 4 open by 22:00lcl. One can only hope. Sucks trying to get ramped up after something like

146 OPNLguy : They just got a 3rd runway opened back up and the AAR went up to 48, which should cut the delays down some...
147 Mbm3 : I am surprised that the airlines are not sending bigger aircraft in to DEN. Granted, there might not be much available but there are very few widebodi
148 Brick : As I was digging my car out of the Wally Park parking lot at DIA (took me 2.5 hours), a Fed Ex DC-10 departed pretty much right at noon which I believ
149 Post contains links F9Widebody : http://flightaware.com/live/flight/JBU9004 Jetblue is doing some positioning to get more people out of DEN. The same flight is scheduled for tomorrow,
150 AlitaliaMD11 : Looks like American sent in a 767-300 from DFW rather then the normal MD-82.
151 AirEMS : What are PAPI lights? OK so open mouth insert foot! I'd rather see the Frontier 777 or 787 personally! -Carl
