Colorado has been experiencing a bit of dry spell in February, on the heels of a very snowy December and January that put the state’s snowpack at above-normal levels. However, the two- to three-week snowstorm drought ended today, as it’s a powder day!
Crested Butte is well on its way to surpassing record snowfall with 23 feet this season. Monday evening was the height of the storm. The snow totals seemed to be most significant in the southern and south-central ranges. Tonight, we should see more snow showers in central and northern parts of the state. That should be the conclusion of new snow for this week. On Sunday and Monday of next week, we will see a few more inches pile up in the southern mountains. This storm should keep Coloradans occupied until the next storm is predicted to hit around the 2nd week of March.

With encouragement from my family and friends, I decided to move from Virginia to the Roaring Fork Valley in May of 2015. Since then, I've worked at Ski.com and have happily transitioned into the Co-op & Promotions Manager position. Living in the Aspen area is a dream come true, with so much to do and explore. I am truly blessed to have found a community that shares in my love for the outdoors.
