The remarkable 2013-14 ski season in Colorado continued this weekend as Colorado Ski Country USA (CSCUSA) resorts enjoyed another new round of snowfall. This most recent storm was widespread, blanketing the high country in fresh snow just in time for skiers and snowboarders to enjoy great conditions over the first weekend of March.

Since Thursday, CSCUSA resorts have enjoyed an average of 17 inches of new snow. Eighteen CSCUSA resorts enjoyed double-digit snow totals over the weekend, and five resorts enjoyed more than two feet of powder.

Resorts in the southwest of Colorado fared particularly well, as Wolf Creek celebrated 37 inches of new snow in the space of three days. Silverton recorded 33 inches of fresh powder, Durango Mountain Resort saw 27 inches, and snowriders at Telluride enjoyed 17 inches of new snow.

Further north, Loveland and Crested Butte also broke through the two-foot threshold with 25 inches and 24 inches of snow, respectively. Arapahoe Basin received 18 inches, and Copper Mountain and Winter Park each saw 17 inches of fresh powder. Ski Cooper saw 15 inches, Eldora and Monarch Mountain each received 14 inches of new snow, and Ski Granby Ranch accumulated 7 inches of powder,

To the west, Aspen Highlands measured 19 inches of new snow, Snowmass registered 14 inches, Aspen Mountain, Powderhorn, Steamboat, and Sunlight Mountain Resort all enjoyed 11 inches of snow, Buttermilk registered 6 inches, and Howelsen recorded 4.5 inches.

Conditions across Colorado Ski Country are in prime shape as March begins, historically Colorado’s snowiest month.  Significant additional accumulation is expected this coming Tuesday and Friday.
