The snowy season is going out with a bang in Colorado and two ski areas are reporting double digit snowfall totals out this potent May storm.
Winter Park and Loveland both scored big and today will likely be one of the better May powder days either resort has ever seen. What’s better is that it’s closing week at Loveland and Winter Park and this new snow should make for epic conditions today through Saturday.
“Gotta love this unpredictable spring weather! Enjoy some freshened conditions across the mountain. It’s these late-season storms that allow A-Basin to stay open so long – we’re targeting at least Sunday, June 3 as our closing date… although more of these spring storms means the possibility of being open longer… stay tuned! Have fun out there.” – Arapahoe Basin Snow Report
In the meantime a Winter Weather Advisory remains in effect across the front range until noon today with up to 6 more inches forecasted.
LET IT SNOW!
