DENVER, Colo. – January 23, 2012 – Several substantial snow storms rolled through Colorado Ski Country USA (CSCUSA) recently, leaving resorts with fresh snow measurable in feet. The most recent storm occurred over the weekend and brought nearly three feet of snow to Silverton Mountain in Southwest Colorado.
The weekend storm was spread across the state and gave all 22 CSCUSA member resorts a welcome layer of fresh powder. Both Loveland Ski Area and Crested Butte Mountain Resort benefited from almost two feet of new snow; Telluride 20 inches of snow, and Copper, Steamboat and Sunlight enjoyed roughly a foot-and-a-half of fresh snow.
A little more than two feet blanketed Arapahoe Basin, Aspen/Snowmass and Eldora, while Ski
Cooper and Purgatory at Durango Mountain Resort were just shy of two feet. About a foot powder fell at Monarch and Powderhorn, and a solid 10 inches came down at Winter Park.
Wolf Creek received eight inches of new snow from the storm, SolVista Basin received six inches and Echo Mountain benefited with four inches. Howelsen Hill was reporting three inches of new snow from the most recent weather system.
Guests to CSCUSA resorts have been cashing in on the winter wealth Colorado has received this month by racking up numerous powder days. More new snow is expected later this week. In the meantime, skiers and snowboarders continue to take advantage of Learn to Ski and Snowboard specials being offered by resorts during the month of January.
