SUMMIT COUNTY — Mid-February brought full-on winter conditions to ski areas in Colorado, with most resorts reporting between one and two feet of snow in the past seven days.
A series of storms brought on and off snow to the Rockies, with Wolf Creek reporting a 35-inch total for the week, while Steamboat tallied 28.5 inches. Silverton measured a weekly total of 25 inches and Telluride benefited with 23 inches. Farther north, Loveland and Winter Park both picked up 21.5 inches of new snow for the week with 20 inches at Monarch, Copper Mountain and Purgatory at Durango Mountain Resort.

SUMMIT COUNTY — The most recent storm to roll through Colorado dropped fresh snow statewide, but the southern part of the state saw the biggest storm totals, with 28 inches at Silverton Mountain, 19 inches at Purgatory, inches at Wolf Creek, 16 inches at Monarch and 14 inches at Telluride.
In the north, 10 inches at Steamboat helped that resort reach the so-called four-wire milestone, when snow reaches up to the fourth strand of the wire fences characterizing the area’s ranching landscape.
