Today’s Colorado ski and snow report: five-day totals

See also

Following four or five days of steady snow in the mountains, another round is supposed to roll through the state and keep the snow falling until about Tuesday morning.

According to the National Weather Service, this next round may bring more snow in the next couple of days than the Colorado ski resorts – particularly those in the northern and central mountains – saw over the past five days.

In other words, it’s possible that certain locations will see more than a foot of snow accumulate come Tuesday morning. The top five-day snow total as of this morning goes to Vail Mountain at just an inch shy of two feet of new snow. Nice.

As many of you know, it was rather windy and cold yesterday, and the combination caused a variety of cancelations and postponements at the Sprint U.S. Grand Prix in Breckenridge. The International Ski Federation jury for freeskiing moved the halfpipe skiing event to today at 9:30 a.m.

The FIS jury for snowboarding canceled the halfpipe and snowboarding events, which will not be scored. The decision was made after assessing the circumstances and taking feedback from both riders and sanctioning partners FIS and TTR. The competitions were the third of five Olympic selection events.

It’s supposed to be even windier and colder today as the next wave comes through Colorado. If you happened to catch the Seahawks-Saints NFC playoff game yesterday, you got a preview, Seattle-style (windy, rainy, chilly) of the precipitation headed toward Colorado’s mountains.

Check back tomorrow morning, when we’ll post the 24-hour totals, the six-day totals and the latest terrain report. We expect all of Colorado’s ski areas will be at or near 100 percent, especially following six days of relatively steady snowfall. In the meantime, here are the 24-hour, two-day, three-day, four-day and five-day totals, in that order, from across Colorado…
