Colorado Ski Country USA (CSCUSA) resorts have reaped the benefits of a big snowstorm, with some ski areas receiving more than a foot of snow ahead of the long MLK Day weekend.

The highest snow totals fell in the Southwest region of Colorado, where Telluride led the state with 15 inches of new snow in 48 hours. Wolf Creek welcomed 13 inches of powder in 48 hours, while Purgatory Resort in Durango collected 10 inches of snow.

Elsewhere in Colorado, 10 inches of snow fell on Steamboat, while Sunlight and Snowmass each saw 7 inches of accumulated snow. Eldora and Crested Butte brought in half a foot of snow with 6 new inches of powder each.

Five inches fell at Winter Park, Powderhorn, Loveland Ski Area and Cooper. Several ski resorts saw 4 fresh inches of snow, including Copper Mountain, Monarch, Howelsen Hill, Aspen Highlands and Aspen Mountain.

Weather forecasts are projecting more snow through Friday in advance of the MLK weekend across Colorado, and a stormy pattern over the final two weeks of January.
