Southern Colorado Gets Hammered By the Biggest Storm of the Year

Southern Colorado Gets Hammered By the Biggest Storm of the Year

News
posted: 01/01/2000

TELLURIDE, Colo. March 1, 2004--Telluride is digging out from a massive storm that dumped 30 inches of snow over the weekend. The Telluride Ski Patrol measured an 80-inch base at the top of the mountain and a 77-inch base at mid-mountain.

The National Weather Service is predicting another storm system to roll through the area late tonight bringing more snow to the Telluride area throughout the week.

"It started snowing Friday afternoon and kept pounding throughout the weekend," said Pete Woods, vice president of sales & marketing for the Telluride Ski Resort. "This is the biggest storm Telluride has seen in several years. Fat boards were created for days like today."

Durango Mountain Resort Has Deepest Base

DURANGO, CO Feb. 29, 2004--Mother Nature continues to smile on Durango Mountain Resort as Purgatory Mountain saw 27" of new snow in the last 24 hours, 29" for the storm, and forecasts are calling for 6-12 more overnight. DMR is behind only Silverton Mountain for storm snow totals, well ahead of the rest of Colorado, and has the deepest resort base depth in the state at 92 inches.

"It's unbelievable out here today," said local Jen Bartlett. "We've got to have the best conditions in Colorado, and this is the best season at DMR in several years."

Snow began falling on Friday night and stayed light but steady until mid-day. After that, as much as 3 inches fell per hour, and skiers and riders gave their own reports this morning with excited shouts as they hit the fresh powder. This storm follows on the heels of another major dump last weekend---in the past 7 days Purgatory Mountain has received 54" of new snow.
