After months of wishing, waiting, and praying, the snow gods delivered a big smooch on Colorado's high country over the weekend. Thanks to a storm that dropped 8 to 12 inches at several resorts, skiers and riders hit the slopes, regaining some optimism for a a killer winter. If you didn't make it to the mountains, here are some pics and B-Roll to get you in the mood.

How do 15 inches sound? Glorious. The storm that hit Summit County also pounded Aspen. The resort racked up 18 inches in 48 hours. Aspen Mountain has nine runs, with 135 acres open, and three lifts running.

 Copper guests went all '70’s dance party Saturday night. Hey, their snow dances drew six inches of fresh. No shame, no storm.
