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.
