AN impressive snow storm moved into Colorado Ski Country USA on Monday leaving double digit snow totals at many resorts.

The Central and Southwest mountains witnessed the bulk of the storm with Silverton Mountain the major benefactor reaping 19 inches, and Wolf Creek 18 inches, both in a 48 hour period.

During the same 48 hours, 17 inches fell at Snowmass, 16 inches at Buttermilk, 15 inches came down at Crested Butte Mountain Resort and 14 inches covered Aspen Mountain and Aspen Highlands.

Just about a foot of snow fell at Purgatory at Durango Mountain Resort and Steamboat Resort, with both resorts reporting 11 inches in the last 48 hours. Telluride is enjoying 10 inches of new snow, Winter Park-seven-and-a-half and Monarch a solid seven.

More snow is expected in Colorado later this week. Meanwhile, skiers and snowboarders are able to take advantage of quintessential Colorado blue bird skies and deep powder conditions.
