A wet Pacific storm delivered widespread snow across the entire state of Colorado, with many ski areas reporting more than a foot of snow, including 17 inches at Crested Butte, 16 inches at Telluride and six to 10 inches at the resorts along the I-70 corridor.
Crested Butte’s Snow Betty report this morning: “Hit the fluffy white slopes this morning because we’ve gotten 4 inches of new snow in the last 24 hours! In the last two days, we’ve received 19 inches of snow and this entire weather event in the last week has dropped 37 inches of snow on the mountain. Our “deependable” base is 44″ at the top, 33″ at midway and is waiting for you to practice some powder turns! Our open terrain includes 78 trails on 553 acres, including 75 groomed trails and the Groomer’s Choice for Today, Upper Keystone- one of my favorite runs, by the way! New terrain opening up for the day includes Double Top Glades, Peonia, Silvanite and Topsy. Forecasters are calling for a 60% chance of snow tomorrow, and with our recent snow event, we’re feeling confident the pow will continue to rise.”
