Been a long time since I"ve seen Pikes Peak with so much snow

After the latest storm, the peak is whiter than a rerun of Leave it to Beaver.
Is there a record snowpack? It's hard to know because the snotel automated snowpack recorder near Glen Cove started to malfunction when the last storm hit. Up to that point, it appears that Glen Cove had received 12.7 inches of precipitation from October to January. That's more than double what the peak saw last year.
If this keeps up, it could be an epic backcountry season when snow stabilizes above treeline this spring.
