The snow is falling on Loveland Pass and A-Basin and Loveland are both getting a much-needed reset after anxious Colorado skiers scraped off the man-made stuff during the first two weeks of skiing/riding in the state.
NOAA issued a Winter Weather Advisory that has both ski areas forecasted to receive between 5-10″ of snow by Thursday. Winter Park and areas of Rocky Mountain National Park should also see similar snow totals.
LET IT SNOW!
“Snow will increase across the area today and this evening. Rain is initially expected below 6000 feet and may linger through late afternoon before turning to snow.” – NWS Boulder
