We've had a very active and snowy week once again at our ski resorts, particularly for our southern mountains. Wolf Creek is up 31 inches from this time last week! Other area resorts didn't fare too poorly...take a look:

So, that's your good news. On the other hand, all that snow has led to high avalanche risk, particularly in the San Juans:

Avalanche Risk on Thursday, February 8th, in Colorado

Avalanche Warnings are in effect until Friday morning for the areas shaded in red. Avoid backcountry skiing in these zones. In the rest of the state, avalanche risk is considerable. At resorts, base depths are up 10-20 inches from where they stood a week ago.
