As ski season continues to creep up on us, we’re compiling a roundup of where it snowed the previous week and where we’ll see snow the coming week to keep snow hype alive and well until the official start of the season. If you’re one of the lucky ones to get pre-season turns in, or just snag a fantastic shot this season, make sure to send it our way for your chance to be featured in #FridayFreshies.

Last Week

Silverton had enough snow for individuals to get in their first turns of the season. The resort posted on Oct. 2 how the recent storm left the resort with “moist snow in the alpine with varying depths” but concluded any snow is good snow when it’s this early in the season.


Coming this Week

Coloradans will see a cold front coming in this weekend that may result in significant snowfall at elevations at 8,000 and 9,000 feet later next week. According to an article by Denver9 News, Wednesday and Thursday may be when ski resorts will get a head start on building their base for the season. Ski resorts in Summit County specifically will be benefitting from this forecast, including a projected two inches for Keystone Resort, Breckenridge Ski Resort and Copper Resort this Wednesday.

Other resorts that are looking like they’ll get some white stuff are Loveland Ski Area with a predicted 5 inches and Arapahoe Basin Ski Area with a projected 4 inches.

Outside of Colorado, southeast Alaska is also anticipating snow in the coming week. Alyeska Resort is projected to have one inch of snow in the next five days, but five inches in the next 10 days.

Powder wonderland, a skier's dream

Forecasts can be tricky but the cold front will be bringing precipitation our way and we can’t help but begin the countdown for the beginning of the season at our favorite resorts!
