With several ski areas already open and another five on Thanksgiving Day and over the weekend, Colorado Ski Country USA ski areas across the state received significant snowfall from a storm on Monday and Tuesday.
Purgatory, which opened this past Saturday, received 17 inches while Wolf Creek, which will open Thanksgiving Day, and Telluride in southwest Colorado received 16 and 11 inches respectively.
Elsewhere, Winter Park, which opens tomorrow, is up to 7 inches while 6 inches fell at Powderhorn, Sunlight and Monarch. Steamboat, which also opens tomorrow, has 5 inches thus far.
