The more snow, the better, particularly if most of it stays in the mountains. We obviously picked up a bit down here on the Front Range, but for the most part we’ve avoided the majority of the snow storms.
And, every bit of snow in the mountains helps on many different levels: the summer water situation, river runoff fun for white-water types, and the potential for a ski season that lasts through July 4.
As you can see from the 24-hour snow totals below, this was a nice contribution to the summer snowpack. More is headed our way Wednesday night through Thursday night. It’s too early to figure out what the totals may be, but we expect it won’t be as much as what just fell.
Be careful heading up this morning, and it should be surprisingly cold and windy. In fact, it will feel somewhat wintry all week long, so bundle up and pretend it’s February.
There it is, and here are the 24-hour snow totals from across Colorado…
Arapahoe Basin: 6”
Aspen Mountain: 9”
Beaver Creek: 10”
Copper Mountain: 12”
Winter Park: 3 1/2”
