February has been a very snowy month in Colorado, and within the last week, several Colorado ski areas have seen feet of snowfall on the slopes.
Wolf Creek Ski Area
In what some are calling Snowmaggedon, Wolf Creek Ski Area has seen more than 3 feet of snow in 3 days and 74 inches in the last 7 days. The highest 24-hour snow total of this storm was 28 inches in 24 hours, which fell on Wolf Creek through mid-day Tuesday.

Editor's note: Field correspondent R. Scott Rappold was assigned to write a story about this week's huge series of storms at his home mountain, Wolf Creek Ski Area in southern Colorado, which as of Thursday afternoon had dropped 60 inches of snow since Monday. After much pleading and urging, he was grudgingly convinced to come down off the hill. Several threatening references towards his editors have been deleted from the final version.
