After weeks of mountain operations hitting the snowmaking hard, crews across Colorado finally get a little help from Mother Nature! With over 20 resorts in full swing we have only 5 mountains we're waiting on opening, Howelsen Hill, Monarch, Powderhorn, Ski Cooper and SolVista. Where other mountains that have been open for a few weeks now are celebrating an early week pow day. In the last 72 hours Wolf Creek received 28 inches of fresh snow, Silverton got 23 inches, Durango 14 inches and Breckenridge 10. Think it's safe to say that 2011-12 snowboard season is fully under way.
