Several inches to over a foot of snow fell in areas of Colorado this week. Here’s an overview of the states snowfall analysis.
Total Snowfall Across Colorado
The San Luis Valley in south-central Colorado saw the most snow with areas picking up upwards of 18-inches of the fluffy white stuff! Here’s how it looked across our membership.

A lovely swath of snow covered Eldora resort getting them very excited for the upcoming season.
Chets Dream was living the dream with summer snow falling on the Continental Divide
The big winner for today is Monarch Mountain! Upwards of 18″ fell on them and it’s still falling!
Some very gusty winds came with the snow making it feel like a full on winter storm. Until you look and see the green leaves still covering the trees in the background.
Perhaps one of the more healthy snows came on the Western Slope near Sunlight mountain. Several inches stacked up making it almost look like it’s ready for skiers and riders.

And lastly, heavy snow was falling at Winter Park Resort where windchills were in the single digits at times!
