The year started with plentiful powder in Colorado and resorts are loving it. The town vibe is amazing in [R25R, Aspen], according to Aspen's Melissa Rhines. "We've been so lucky this year. All of Colorado has been so lucky. The snow has been stellar and now with the cold temperatures, it is holding so well. There are powder stashes still to be found all over the mountain."

The Perfect Storm deal is still available in Aspen, but it has to be booked by Feb. 11. Book four or more days/nights in Aspen/Snowmass and get the next day or night free, along with the Perfect Storm card which is good for discounts on ski and snowboard school, as well as other deals at the resort.

[R113R, Copper] is digging the snowy weather. The mountain is quickly approaching the season average in snowfall, "And we have four months left to the season," said Copper's David Roth. "This is shaping up to be one of the best seasons we've ever had. Visitation has been great. Numbers have been great. The mountain is open 100 percent. Things are awesome. This has been such a great year."

[R425R, Steamboat's] season started off with a bang, and a record-breaking snowfall in November. Loryn Kasten with the resort says it was followed up with incredible snowfall in early January. "It's bringing smiles to everyone's faces as they take part in the bountiful Champagne PowderTM snow we've received."

She said one January storm brought 18 inches of snow in a 24-hour period. "To get such a big storm to start off the New Year is a great way to get guests from all over the country excited about coming to Steamboat and taking part in such incredible conditions."

Numbers are up at Vail Resorts' areas in Colorado, which are [R482R, Vail], [R36R, Beaver Creek], [R77R, Breckenridge], and [R197R, Keystone]. Skier visits are up 10.1 percent through the same holiday period last year.

Commenting on the ski season to date, Rob Katz, Vail's Chief Executive Officer said, "Our early season visitation was strong, especially as our growing season pass holder base enjoyed the outstanding snow conditions across all of our mountain resorts. While the Christmas to New Year's week was negatively impacted by storm related challenges in the Northeast that kept some of our guests at home, as well as two days of unusually cold temperatures in Colorado, we feel great about results to date and the momentum we have going into the remainder of the season."
