Denver, Colo. – January 6, 2017 – The new year is off to a snowy start at Colorado Ski Country USA (CSCUSA) ski areas across the state with nearly three feet of fresh powder for skiers and snowboarders.

In the last 48 hours Mother Nature has dropped 35 inches at Monarch Mountain, 30 inches at Crested Butte Mountain Resort and 29 inches at Wolf Creek Ski Area.

Skiers and riders at Steamboat enjoyed 22 inches, while Arapahoe Basin and Loveland Ski Area saw 21 inches and 20 inches respectively.

Elsewhere, Silverton and Eldora each received 18 inches, while the four Aspen Snowmass mountains saw accumulations of between 17 and 10 inches. Sixteen inches fell at Cooper, Purgatory and Winter Park, which welcomes the return of the Winter Park Express Ski Train tomorrow. Hesperus Ski Area celebrated 15 inches and Copper Mountain welcomed 14 inches.  

Granby Ranch and Powderhorn each saw 10 inches of snow.

This recent storm will allow ski areas to open more terrain, if they are not already 100 percent open.
