A year for the books

What a winter, not that it has stopped snowing in the high country yet, but the numbers are in and eight of Colorado resorts received record snowfall .

2007-08 Season Snowfall Record Breakers:

  • Aspen/Snowmass - 450 inches
  • Beaver Creek - 430 inches
  • Crested Butte - 422 inches
  • Monarch Mountain - 482 inches
  • Powderhorn - 320 inches
  • Silverton - 550 inches (and counting)
  • Steamboat - 489 inches

Vail saw its third snowiest winter on record, Purgatory at Durango Mountain Resort saw their fifth snowiest winter. Both Copper Mountain’s and Sunlight Mountain Resort’s snowfall totals landed in the top ten in resort history. Keystone tied its best snowfall in the previous eight years, and Eldora received their best snow year in the previous five years.

Rock on!
