A huge winter storm rolled into Keystone Ski Resort on Thursday evening of last week, the beginning of a wonderful March at the Colorado Ski Resort. The storm started small, with 5 inches reported on Friday morning, March 1st. On Saturday the snow continued, with another 6 inches reported that morning and on Saturday evening, the fun really started. 12 inches of snow fell overnight, giving visitors an amazing powder Sunday. Even more amazing were the ‘free refills’ that visitors experienced all day long, as the snow didn’t stop. Another 12 inches of snow was reported this morning at Keystone, bringing the 5 day total to 35 inches!
Even better, more snow is on the way and daily snow is expected through the 10 day forecast. Fat Tuesday Mardi Gras celebrations in Keystone tomorrow should see a little sun and a nice 30 degree day and then the snow will pickup again Tuesday evening. Wednesday into Thursday should see more significant snow, with a possibility of 11 inches by Friday morning.

Keystone Ski Resort has received another early season snow storm. We woke up to fresh snow on the ground, with everything covered in a blanket of white. More snow is expected through the morning, with a high of only 35 degrees expected for today and then it will clear up this afternoon. Although this storm didn’t bring as much as the last storm, which dropped a foot of fresh snow in some places, the cool temps and fresh snow certainly help with snowmaking efforts.
Loveland Ski Resort opened this morning for the 17 / 18 winter ski season and Arapahoe Basin has already been open for 1 week, opening last Friday, October 13. Keystone Resort is soon to follow, with their scheduled opening day on Friday, November 10.
