Winter Storm Continues To Blanket High Country With Snow

Denver (AP)- After almost a week of nearly constant snowfall and nearly continuous skiing, Justin Desrosiers still isn't satisfied. The Steamboat Springs Resort employee had been on the slopes each day since Monday, but he planned to cram another hour–and–a–half in after he got off work today to enjoy more than a foot of new powder. A winter storm continued to pound Colorado's Rocky Mountains with powder, leaving skiers and snowboarders giddy. Industry group Colorado Ski Country USA says Crested Butte reported 15 inches from yesterday afternoon to today; Vail reported 15; and Monarch had 18 inches. The Aspen skiing company says the Aspen and Snowmass area received 25 inches in a 24–hour period. That's on top of record or near–record snowfalls reported at some resorts in November. Between two and three inches of snow fell in Denver beginning late last night, for the area's first taste of the week's storm.
National Weather Service Meteorologist Carl Burroughs says
snowfall should continue in most areas before tapering off Monday. However, some snow is predicted each day through Thursday in the mountains.
