Today’s Colorado ski and snow report: end of week analysis

See also

Snow totals over the past 24 hours are quite variable, ranging from zero in just a few places all the way up to 12 inches at Powderhorn, and everything in between.

In other words, predicting snow totals in the mountains is much like the proverbial box of chocolates. The same will hold true through the weekend and into early next week.

Snow is forecast as a very high probability for all of Colorado’s mountains until Tuesday. Until then, it appears your best chance for a powder day wherever you go will be Sunday. Again, it could vary wildly as it did over the past 24 hours from area to area, but there’s a real good shot at it everywhere.

As you might expect, traffic will be horrific along I-70 Friday afternoon, Saturday morning and Sunday afternoon. We always advise that you try to leave at non-peak hours (super-early or super-late) and that you calm down and enjoy the scenery, rather than be a rat-racing, tailgating urban jackass.

Enjoy all the new snow! In the meantime, here are the overnight and 48-hour snow totals from Colorado’s ski areas…
