February came in with a bang at Breckenridge, with the Summit County resort getting more than three and a half feet of snow in a week. Snow totals are 36 percent above normal for the season, following the second snowiest January on record.
Beaver Creek has over 22 feet of snow, after recording its snowiest December and January since 1996. Families at Beaver Creek will find plenty of fun, complimentary activities after the lifts close through the end of the season April 13. Mondays are storytelling nights around the outdoor fire pits. Tuesdays and Sundays are ice skating shows and parties. Kids (12 and under) get to go tubing on Wednesdays and Fridays. Thursdays, it's the Rail Jam Series, glowstick ski-down, and fireworks display.
The Aspen/Snowmass area is reporting a record-breaking December and January. The locals have nicknamed the months DEEPcember and JanuBURIED. February's new nickname has yet to be determined, but with 42 inches on record so far, the monthly average of 52 inches is sure to be beat. Stop signs across the mountain towns of Colorado, like this one in Aspen, are buried.
Loveland got two feet of snow at the start of the month. Seventy-five percent of The Ridge is open as a result. Wolf Creek also is having a very snowy year with 92 inches of snow in one seven-day period in February. That's over a foot a day.
Powderhorn outside of Grand Junction has been breaking records as well, with 250 inches of snow so far, which is typically the amount they have for an entire season. This is the most snowfall on record, dating back to the 1983-84 season. Powderhorn's Sarah Allen tells OnTheSnow that it has been snowing about every week.
