Most of our ski resorts got clobbered with our most recent winter storm - 22 inches of snow has fallen in the past week at Monarch for example. However, temperatures are warming and day lengths are increasing meaning ski season will be coming to an end soon. Most resorts have announced tentative closing dates. The first batch will be on April 7th, which means only 3 more weekends of skiing remain:

Keystone, Telluride, and Wolf Creek are among the resorts with just 3 weekends of skiing left

Monarch, Beaver Creek, and Steamboat will follow a week later. For now though - Spring skiing conditions are good. Thanks to our recent storm, Monarch is at 120% of its 30-year average annual base depth for this time of year. Similar conditions can be found across Colorado.

Base Depths are above average, as is snowpack, statewide

This weekend, we're tracking more snow once again.

Forecast conditions at Monarch and Steamboat both feature snow showers and cooling highs beginning on Saturday

Less than last week though.

FRI: Pre-dawn 1-2" N mtns
SAT: Partly cloudy, breezy, late snow showers (all).
SUN: Significant snow...poor driving conds, heaviest AM in Elk Range (Aspen), PM for I-70 and Front Range slopes.
MON: AM break, PM light snow showers.

By mid-Tuesday many resorts will have picked up another 4-10+ inches of snow, much of it falling on Sunday

Expect challenging travel conditions Sunday, and dress for February type highs on Monday.
