Mountain communities in Colorado are enjoying the strongest start since 2007, with resort snowpack already surpassing average measurements from the past two seasons and ski areas opening record amounts of terrain for mid-December.
The Denver Post reports Breckenridge lodges are seeing a 13 percent increase in bookings over last year. By the end of November in Aspen and Snowmass -- thanks to early season snow -- lodging reservations were ahead of last year for every day of December. Every lodge in the Roaring Fork Valley is expected to be full for the New Year's holiday.
Mark Waldman says vacationers interested in his Summit County home rentals last season kept asking if there was any snow. This year, he says his 150 units are booking steadily and are nearly sold out over the New Year's holiday.
