You may not have heard, but Colorado’s ski areas received a nice gift from Mother Nature this week – one that has left resorts with a comfortable bump in their snow totals. After receiving measurable accumulations over President’s Day weekend, snowfall amounts have continued to rise this week by as much as 20 inches in some areas.

Highlights include 20 inches at Monarch Mountain, 15 inches at Wolf Creek, 12 inches at Telluride, and 10 inches at Powderhorn. Snowmass reported 9 inches, Aspen 8 inches and Buttermilk 5 inches.
