OVER 1 FOOT OF POWDER FALLS IN PAST 18 HOURS IN TELLURIDE
TELLURIDE, CO. January 22, 2010 – Over 1 foot of snow has blanketed the Telluride Ski Area in the past 18 hours, leaving 13 inches to greet enthusiastic skiers and boarders at the top of the ski area this morning.
Telluride and the San Juan Mountains are currently under a winter storm warning issued by the National Weather Service. Snow showers started Monday afternoon, with snow continuing throughout the week. This current storm cycle brought 13 inces at top of mountain overnight. A 52-inch base was reported with powder conditions as of 7 a.m. Telluride can now boast one of the best snow bases in Colorado to date.
“Telluride is looking forward to a terrific February,” said CEO of the resort Dave Riley. “With these great conditions, and our new superb night terrain park and superpipe, there is no better time to book a ski vacation in Telluride!”
The National Weather Service reports another major winter storm will continue to impact much of western Colorado into the weekend. Periods of heavy snow will fall over the mountains with 1 to 3 feet of new snow possible.
