Keeping You Moving

182" of Snow Plowed So Far This Winter

The month of March was full of epic powder days and over 61 inches of plowable snow was recorded by the Town Road Division. That is more than any other month, in any other year, since the Town started tracking snowfall in 1987. In total, the Town has now recorded over 182 inches of snow plowed so far this winter, which is already more than the total for any season in ten years, and it is on pace with record years like 2007 / 2008 and 1992 / 1993. With all of this snowfall, it takes a lot of Town staff to keep you moving safely, including Village Shuttle drivers, police officers, fleet mechanics, and of course... our snow plow operators.

Snow plow equipment is readied and operators are dispatched as soon as snow is in the forecast. When the snow starts dumping, operators are responsible for clearing 34.5 miles of paved streets in three tiers of priorities:

First, operators plow and spot sand major arterial roadways, including: Brush Creek Road, Owl Creek Road, Highline Road, and Carriage Way. Second, major collector streets, such as Wood Road and Faraway Road, are plowed. Lastly, crews begin clearing residential streets and parking lots. Not all residential streets can be plowed at the same time, however, and according to the Town’s Snow Removal Plan, the road crews try to hit the streets that need them the most first.

Helpful Tips To Ensure Smooth Mail Delivery

The Town has received multiple complaints regarding the levels of service at the Post Office, and we have heard your concerns loud and clear. The Town Council and Town staff have reached out to both federal representatives and USPS administrators to assist in finding a solution. We are actively working through issues, but they have also asked the community to assist them. Follow the tips below to help improve post office services for everyone. 

Always Include Your P.O. Box Number

Improperly addressed mail that does not include a P.O. Box for the intended recipient has caused a significant backup in the mail room. It is crucial that you include your P.O. Box in your shipping address - every time. Even if you think UPS or FedEx will be delivering your parcels, the USPS might end up with it.

Proper Address for Recipient Mail or Package:

John Doe 
123 Brush Creek Rd.
P.O. Box 5555
Snowmass Village, 81615

Come and Get It!

Once your mail or packages are delivered to the post office, the USPS asks that you please pick it up as quick as possible. Not doing so requires the USPS to store packages, and this takes up precious space in the mail room that could be used more efficiently. 

Thank You For Your Patience

Most importantly, thank you for your patience. There is a much higher volume of packages being delivered to Snowmass Village lately, and the queue of people waiting to pick up their packages can be long. If you receive a package slip in your PO Box and have flexibility in your schedule, the USPS recommends picking it up early in the morning when the post office is less busy. Wait times are longer in the early afternoon, so timing your visit can big a huge help and cut down your wait time.

New Concepts for Combined Mall Transit Station 

On Monday night, the Town Council will be getting a first look at three conceptual designs for a combined transit station on the Snowmass Mall. The project, which has been identified as a necessary capital improvement since the 1980's, aims to improve the transit, pedestrian, and guest arrival experience at the Snowmass Mall while increasing pedestrian safety, providing better access to the Mall, and not reducing overall parking spaces. 

Each of the concepts will include several features and amenities that will help accomplish these goals, including: improved transit station waiting areas, public restrooms, replacement parking, a driver’s break room, pedestrian walkways, and escalators and/or elevators. If you can't attend the Town Council meeting on Monday to see them for yourself, no problem. The Town is hosting a public open house on Wednesday, April 10th from 4 p.m. - 6 p.m. in Town Hall to present the concepts to the public and gather feedback.
