What ski resort is winning the snow race?

Silverton, right now, is tops, reporting 18 inches and it's still snowing there.
Loveland is second with 13 inches.
Monarch and Wolf Creek are third with 10 inches.
But there could be much more to come.

Here's the winter weather advisory for the central mountains:

Snow will gradually increase in intensity across the mountains this evening and then continue through Friday. A few snow showers may be heavy Friday with snowfall rates in excess of 1 inch per hour. Total accumulations of 5 to 10 inches can be expected by late Friday afternoon.

The same advisory is calling for 8 to 10 in the San Juans.
If that much does fall, skiing could be great Saturday. Make plans. This could be the last hoorah of the season. (Not likely, but it could be. Seize the day!)
