With Colorado seeing snowfall as early as October, everyone was expecting an early season and a great one. Let’s recap what we have seen so far in 2020 when it comes to the Colorado Ski Season.
Mountains Opening Up For The Season Early
As predicted with the early snowfall in October, we saw multiple mountain resorts open up before expected. Here are when we saw resorts open their slopes to eager skiers and snowboarders:
- Copper Mountain: Opened November 8th
- Echo Mountain: November 29th
- Eldora: November 1st
- Aspen: November 28th
- Winter Park: November 2nd
- Snowmass: November 28th
- Vail: November 15th

With the mountains of Colorado opening up so early, there is no excuse to put off your visit to the Mountains to hit the slopes!
Snowfall So Far This Season
Halfway through the ski season we have seen a tremendous amount of snow! Every river basin in the state has an above-average snowpack. The Yampa and White River drainage, which includes Steamboat, and the southwestern corner of the state are at 18% above average. The central mountains are at 9% above average. For the seven-day period in Colorado, Steamboat and Wolf Creek picked up 28 inches, Winter Park and Monarch 21 and Beaver Creek 20.
It’s been an encouraging amount of snowfall so far this year, so if you haven’t made your trip up to the mountains so far. Now is the time!
