Winter is Coming Hot

Another day, another early season snowstorm for the Rockies! Mother Nature unleashed more than just a dusting in Colorado, as many of the state's resorts are reporting heavy snowfall. Steamboat seems to be the big winner of the storm and is reporting 19 inches.

Arapahoe Basin and Loveland, who are in a race to be the first resorts to open for the season, both received 17 inches. This was a great addition to their already impressive bases and snowmaking efforts.

This storm also caused one of the first snow-related road closures on I-70, as the slick, wet roads may have caught some people by surprise and caused numerous crashes, according to CDOT’s Twitter.
