It’s snowing in Colorado! The Mile Hi City and surrounding areas saw as much as 14 inches of snow fly today. With temperatures reaching into the 80′s just 2 days ago, it’s a drastic change for residents not familiar with Denver’s fickle weather patterns. “It’s just typical fall weather”, said Denver native Paul Johansen. “I’m ready for ski weather, and this just helped our local ski resorts with an early start”, he said.
Wednesdays forecast calls for an additional 1-6 inches in the next 24-hours with most of the snowfall projected for Summit County ski areas.
With resorts like Keystone, Breckenridge and Copper Mountain gearing up for another ski in less than 2 weeks, the snow couldn’t have come at a better time for the local ski industry. Although most resorts have sophisticated snow making equipment already working throughout the evenings to build-up for opening day, there’s no comparison to what Mother Nature can do by herself.
