33 Inches Fall in the San Juans in One Week
Snow Base Reaches 6 Feet
March Madness Specials Abound
TELLURIDE, CO. Feb. 23, 2010 - Telluride Ski Resort exceeded the 200" inch snow mark yesterday morning, and conditions are unbelievable on the mountain. Thirty three inches of light, fluffy powder have fallen over the last 7 days, with a total accumulation of 205" (7 feet) for the season. Skiers and boarder found heaven this morning, with a 6 foot snow base and a bluebird morning. With sunny skies peaking their way through, Telluride is the perfect spring break destination.
“This was a great storm,” said Dave Riley, CEO of the resort. “Now 17 feet of snow has fallen at our resort, and we can boast a 6 foot base. With these great conditions and numerous March specials, book a vacation in Telluride today!”
Why only a 6 feet of base with 17 feet of total snowfall? The San Juans Mountain snowfall consists mostly of air, and very little water – therefore fluffy powder emerges. This snow compresses or ‘settles’ into a snow base. With very little water, Telluride snow compresses more than at resorts with higher water content.
