Today’s Colorado ski and snow report: more Christmas presents

See also

Not a bad 24-hour period of snow in the mountains, with more on the way tonight. The top three snow total winners were Beaver Creek, Vail and Winter Park. However, just about every Colorado ski area received something to help with that Christmas base and continue the trend to open more terrain for Christmas week.

There is some chance for snow through Monday with the best chance tonight. Right now, the snow is generally taking a break, but it’s possible that as the next wave settles in we’ll see some nice accumulations.

Where we’ll see the nicest accumulations, no one really knows. Who’d have thought the Vail Valley would gather in so much more moisture than other areas of Colorado? No one, but it’s fun to guess who’s next. Our guess (and it’s only a guess) is that areas along the Continental Divide (Monarch, Loveland, A-Basin, Winter Park) will pick up the most snow this time around.

To see if we’re right, or you’re right, check back tomorrow morning. In the meantime, here’s the latest 24-hour and 48-hour snow report plus the latest terrain updates …
