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.

So we’re celebrating the late winter powder with a photoblog courtesy Colorado Ski Country USA and some of the best ski photographers in Colorado. Click on the images to visit the photographer web sites.
