In the 24-hour period following Tuesday’s snowstorm, all of Summit County’s ski areas have gotten at least an inch or two as the area continues to see one snow-producing system after the other. 

Following Tuesday’s storm, Breckenridge Ski Resort wins for the most fresh snow. The resort’s website says that it received 8 inches. Second place goes to Copper Mountain Resort, which reported a fresh 7 inches in the same time frame. 

Keystone Ski Resort and Arapahoe Basin Ski Area haven’t seen as much as their counterparts. Keystone reported just 3 inches, and A-Basin only reported 2 inches. 

Regional resorts 

A few regional resorts recorded some significant powder, too. Steamboat Resort received 11 inches in the Tuesday storm, making it the resort that has the most fresh snow. 

Aspen Mountain and Aspen Snowmass aren’t far behind. Aspen Mountain counted 8 inches, and Aspen Snowmass measured 9 inches. Beaver Creek Resort received 4 inches, Vail Mountain Resort got 3 inches and Winter Park Resort measured 1 inch. 

Loveland Ski Area didn’t report any fresh snow from the storm.
