This week in Summit County has been warmer than usual, but snow that moved in Wednesday night brought a small boost of moisture to the mountains.

According to OpenSnow, Copper Mountain Resort recorded 6 inches as of Thursday morning, Breckenridge had 4 inches and Arapahoe Basin Ski Area, Loveland Ski Area and Keystone Resort each had 3.

This week’s snow has also kept the Blue River’s snow water equivalent above the 30-year median by about 0.1 inches.
