Checking in with our friends over at Powderchasers.com.  Here is the latest report from their dope web site.  Check out the link for the full report.

111 inches in 4 days!  WHEW-  Is that a typo? As of today Mammoth reports this month as in the top 5 snowiest months since 1969 records and if you follow even closer most of it has fallen in the last week! 

Crested Butte and Silverton are the clear winners in Colorado with up to 25 inches as well as respectable amounts in the Tahoe Basin (55 inches in many areas), Steamboat (11-18) and Vail at the 20-25 inch mark and currently snowing.

Heavy snow is going to continue into Monday with radar now showing a new band of moisture running over the Wasatch, I-70 Corridor of Colorado including Aspen where I can see another 7-15 inches today with slightly colder temps decreasing the density and making conditions epic today and perhaps Tuesday.   Snow will be moderate tonight into Tuesday in Colorado, slight decrease in Utah,  as snow levels increase again by midweek and turn heavy again by Wednesday evening. Thursday will another very deep day!  The density will continue to be high after today.  Avalanche Danger will continue to rise with the recently deposited dense snow and strong winds.
