Today’s Colorado ski and snow report: Christmas present update

See also

More presents were left under the tree yesterday, and conditions should be quite nice this Christmas week. Plus, all of the ski areas have been working feverishly to get everything open.

Most of Colorado’s ski areas are at or near 100 percent open, but it appears we need one more round of snow to get there all the way around.

We may see some snow on Christmas Eve, but not enough to quality as a “round.” Other than that it’s expected to be dry most of the week with the next chance for snow showing up next weekend.

Snow is still falling in the mountains, mainly along your I-70 route, so stay safe if you’re headed up there this morning. Loveland Pass is closed due to “adverse conditions,” so if you’re going to sample the new snow at A-Basin, you’ll need to head through the tunnel and take the left toward Keystone when you get to Dillon and Silverthorne.

Here’s the latest snow report, with the one-, two-, three- and four-day totals from the latest round of snow, plus the latest terrain updates …
