Southern Colorado Springs - nothing but a few flakes and wind so far.

Four or five inches so far at Lake Dillon.
So pleas'd at first the towering Alps we try,
Mount o'er the vales, and seem to tread the sky,
Th' increasing prospects tire our wand'ring eyes,
Hills peep o'er hills, and Alps on Alps arise!

A bit over 3" above Crestone, and still falling regularly. Very sticky stuff (it's barely under freezing) that I might think would be avy-prone.

EDIT: close to 5" by 6pm.

Hmmmm, according to NOAA it's a shorts and t-shirt day at 13k on Crestone Needle. Going to be chilly tonight though.

Wolf Creek is knee deep and still dumping. It's a perfect mix between thick enough that you don't hit the suncrust underneath, yet light enough that you don't have to worry about sinking your nose/tips. Free refills all day.

Eldora added a good 7 - 8 inches by early afternoon. It made my telemark-turn learning efforts fun. It was amazing how much easier turns happen with some powder, as opposed to packed snow. :-D

Boulder Canyon was closed by accidents for much of the morning so the crowd at Eldora was surprisingly thin.

Found some snow! This last storm provided, getting anxious for some steep spring stuff though!
