DENVER – December 3, 2018 – A series of storms late last week and over the weekend delivered double digit snow totals to Colorado Ski Country USA (CSCUSA) member ski areas across the state. Forecasts are calling for additional snow over the upcoming week and through mid-December.

From northern Colorado to the southern San Juan mountains, all ski areas received significant snowfall. Double digit totals were measured at Aspen Snowmass, Copper Mountain, Loveland, Monarch, Purgatory, Sunlight, Steamboat, Telluride and Wolf Creek.

Colorado’s early-season snow storms have led to early opening days at several ski areas. Most ski areas are now open in Colorado and are targeting additional terrain openings over the coming days and weeks in advance of the holiday season.
