Colorado started the month of February with a statewide average snowpack that was sitting at just 59 percent of normal. Recent snowfalls during the month of February have helped bolster Colorado’s thin snowpack, bringing the statewide average up to 74 percent.
It’s a welcome change for Colorado’s skiers and snowboarders who have had one of the worst ski seasons in a decade. Hit especially hard this season has been ski areas in the southwest part of the state, which despite the recent snowstorms is still hovering around 60% of normal snowpack.
With less than two months left in the typical snow accumulation season it is very unlikely that Colorado statewide average will reach it’s normal snowpack depth on the season.
