The big storm that blanketed Colorado with snow this week made for a rough commute for drivers. Now, it’s going to lure them to the mountains. And the timing of the storm wasn’t bad for Colorado’s ski country. It hit on a Wednesday afternoon, meaning that by the time the weekend hits, all that powdery, soft snow will be on the minds of skiers and snowboarders.
And that’s good news for resort owners. Up to 20 inches fell on the resort mountains along the Interstate 70 corridor. Mountains elsewhere reported at least another 6 inches.
