After temps in the 40s and bright blue sunny skies the majority of the week, winter returned across Colorado last night with the majority of resorts receiving decent amounts of snow.

The most intense snow started Thursday afternoon and continued through early Friday morning. Friday morning should be a fun powder day across the state, with most snow falling after the lifts stopped. Go get it, we deserve it!

The winners this morning are:

  • Winter Park – 10″
  • Powderhorn – 8″
  • Purgatory – 7″
  • Telluride – 6″
  • Aspen/Snowmass – 5″
  • Beaver Creek – 5″
  • Loveland – 5″
  • Granby Ranch – 5″
  • Eldora – 4″
  • Keystone – 4″
  • Silverton – 4″
  • Wolf Creek – 4″

The next round of snow should arrive on Sunday and possibly continue through Sunday night, so fingers crossed for powder on Sunday afternoon and even Monday morning.
