This massive winter storm moving throughout the country is dumping on every mountain in its path. Colorado has received a blizzard and avalanche warning through tonight, with the Southwestern part of the state being affected most. Here’s a list of how some ski areas were affected by the storm yesterday. Expect these figures to increase today:
-Wolf Creek near Pagosa Springs: more than 23 inches
-Silverton Mountain: more than 22 inches by yesterday morning
-Durango Mountain: more than 28 inches
-Aspen, Buttermilk, Aspen Highlands & Snowmass: at least 10 inches
-Crested Butte: 18 inches
-Telluride: 14 inches
-Sunlight: 10 inches overnight (remember, that’s yesterday)

Resorts along the I-70 didn’t see as much powder, but that may change today. Vail and Beaver Creek got about 2 inches, Loveland and Copper Mountain, about an inch. Breckenridge was not affected by yesterday’s storm. All of these areas should see more snow today, so stay tuned to theskichannel.com for more weather updates!
