    The past weekend’s storm continued to roll through the mountains, as all open Colorado Ski Country resorts received more snow last night, including a 10 inch deposit at Steamboat.

    The weekend’s recent storm that blanketed the state had left Colorado Ski Country resorts with copious amounts of snow, and presented guests with much anticipated powder days. Skiers and snowboarders across the state were delighted with the effects of the storm, and took full advantage of Mother Nature’s generosity. Aspen and Winter Park each benefited from more than a foot of snow, while a number of other resorts, such as Eldora, saw double digit totals deposited. The widespread precipitation allowed for more terrain to be opened throughout the state.
