Snowboarders and skiers can rejoice as the snow season will officially get its start, and right before Christmas. Snow will be falling starting on Thursday, and will fall daily all the way into January.
This year has seen a really slow start to the snow season, with some wondering if there’d even be a snow season this year in the high country. Starting Wednesday, that’s all expected to change, with rainfall starting and lasting for over 10 day. Some areas are likely to see over five feet of snow.

Some of Colorado’s snowiest cities will be hit, including Telluride, Crested Butte, Steamboat Springs, and Aspen. There will be some significant snowfall closer to Denver as well, with 16 inches in areas like Beaver Creek, though areas like Wolf Creek are looking to get 36 inches.
The snowfall is predicted to continue well through January as well so skiers and snowboarders, get your gear ready.
