October Snow in Colorado

October 30, 2022
Listen Now!

The start of ski season is less than two weeks away. Snowmaking has been running full throttle in preparation for opening day. The resorts are ready to receive skiers! Mother Nature has chipped in to make the slopes even sweeter. The end of October brought fantastic snowfall to Vail


This week, Colorado saw massive amounts of snow in the mountains! Now, snow is on the ground across almost the entire state. Vail's snowfall was particularly impressive. More than 20 inches of fresh snow fell on Vail Mountain! With the recent cold weather, this snow isn't going away anytime soon.

Ski season has been slow to start this year because of abnormally dry, warm weather. Many resorts that typically open in the middle of the month were forced to postpone opening. Vail was tentatively set to open November 11, but now the opening date is set in stone! The terrain that will be available at the start of the season remains to be seen. 


In the next 5-10 days, it is estimated that 5 more inches will fall in Vail. The start of ski season is looking good! Read more about snow in Vail at https://opensnow.com/location/vail
