Snow totals over the past several days have been AWESOME for the Colorado Rockies. A few of the top spots made it over the 5 foot mark, like Breckenridge and Loveland Ski Area.

This weekend starts with calmer weather, which will immensely help with travel conditions.


Sunshine and breezy conditions expected. Gusts from 30-40 mph are likely, which will cause some blowing snow. Temperatures will be in the 20s and 30s for most ski areas.


Still gusty, so prepare for wind chills feeling 10 degrees cooler than the air temperature. Passing clouds, but generally staying dry. Temperatures just slightly cooler than Friday.


Snow moves back into the mountains, starting late Saturday night and continuing through Sunday evening. Most ski areas will pick up between 2-7 inches. This will make travel more hazardous, with roads becoming icy or snow packed.
