Winter Storm Delivers in Colorado Ski Country USA

Fresh Powder Piles Up at CSCUSA Resorts

Colorado is celebrating a lovely winter storm that dropped fresh powder on ski areas across the state. Resorts across the state reported up to almost two feet of snow in the last 48 hours.

Early season conditions exist throughout Colorado, which means all skiers and riders should be on the lookout for hidden hazards on the trail, and obey closed trail signs as resorts and Mother Nature work together to open more terrain. ​

Take a look at some of the photos and video resorts are sharing from this latest storm:
