Ski Areas Celebrating Snow

By  | 

Light snow fell today in parts of the south-central Colorado mountains, the first widespread snow of the season.

Light snow was reported on Monarch Pass and in Leadville, but nothing substantial.

The ski industry group Colorado Ski Country USA says 13 Colorado resorts had reported a trace of new snow Tuesday and Wednesday.

Monarch reports an inch of snow, Silverton got at least an inch and Arapahoe Basin had an inch at its peaks. Breckenridge reports a dusting.

The National Weather Service says there was an isolated report of light snow north of Steamboat Springs a few days ago but today's snow is the first report over a broader area.
