SUMMIT COUNTY — Most ski areas in Colorado picked up another few inches of snow overnight, with snow and gusty winds continuing in many areas Tuesday morning. Steamboat benefited the most from a juicy northwest flow, reporting another 9 inches, for a 36-inch storm total.
Considerable to high avalanche danger persists across the backcountry mountains of the entire state, with the most acute danger in the northern San Juan zone, where yet more natural slides are likely. In other areas, triggered releases are likely on most steeper slopes near and above treeline. Check the Colorado Avalanche Information Center for updated forecasts and bulletins.
The north-central mountains, including the Flattops, Sierra Madre and Snow ranges, as well as the Elkhead and Park mountains are under a winter storm warning through 12 p.m. Wednesday, with another foot of snow possible. (more…)
