Mother Nature was busy these past few days dropping some much needed snow across the Central Rockies. Colorado and Utah have suffered from a slow start to the season, where pushed opening dates and temporary closures due to warm, dry weather have plagued early season skiing and riding. The good news? All that snow dancing is starting to pay off. Although the recent storm didn't bury Colorado or Utah, it did go a long way toward building up ski resort bases and improving morale.

The Pacific Northwest continued its positive weather trend with more of the good stuff falling from BC to Oregon. Other winners included Wyoming and Montana.
