My inbox is full with pictures and snow depths from resorts across the state each Monday morning. They're bragging about their powder and their ever-growing snow depth.
This picture is from Steamboat. It's the gondola building, midway up the mountain, where a foot of snow fell. Steamboat had a wet, sloppy, snowy weekend.
Beaver Creek had nine inches of snow and Vail had eight inches over the weekend. The Aspen-area resorts received a foot of snow up top this weekend, with more than three feet since Oct. 15.
Snowmaking began at Breckenridge and Keystone, where opening day is Nov. 9. The U.S. Ski Team will have Keystone Mountain to themselves though, where they will have early, on-snow training beginning Nov. 1. Once open, if you can't make it to Keystone during the day, hit the resort that night. Keystone will offer night skiing and snowboarding from 9 a.m.-9 p.m. on the first day only. Extended hours will resume again later in the season.
