Denver, Colo. – December 7, 2016 – With more ski areas and terrain opening throughout December, Colorado Ski Country USA ski areas received another double digit storm over the last 48 hours.

Eldora was blanketed in 14 inches of powder, while skiers and riders at Steamboat enjoyed a foot of new snow. Winter Park and Arapahoe Basin each received 11 inches in the last two days.

Powderhorn, which will be open for a preview weekend this weekend, and Snowmass each reported 10 inches. Elsewhere, Aspen Mountain and Copper Mountain welcomed 9 inches, with Loveland Ski Area and Monarch Mountain each reporting 8 inches.

Sunlight Mountain Resort received 5 inches in anticipation of their opening day this Friday while Aspen Highlands, Buttermilk and Cooper, all of which open for the season this Saturday, received 10, 8 and 7 inches respectively.
