Colorado's mountains get up to 42 inches of snow

Katie RamirezMay 20, 2017

But more could come on top of that. The National Weather Service forecasted that the area could receive 36 inches by Friday evening.

The national park shared footage from Trail Ridge Road, which is the highest continuous paved highway in North America with an elevation above 12,000 feet at its peak. A video posted to Instagram shows a group of residents making the most out of the snow by jumping on their snow buried trampoline and engaging in a friendly snow ball fight. Xcel Energy has 98 outages affecting 2,111 customers across Colorado as of Friday morning, primarily in the Denver and Boulder areas.

Denver International Airport only saw a trace of snow as of Thursday night, faring better than the high country, which saw up to 31 inches in Estes Park and 38.2 inches in parts of Boulder County, National Weather Service meteorologist Natalie Sullivan said.

With a big dollop of new snow, the avalanche danger is expected to increase through Friday night.

Grouse Mountain in British Columbia just reopened after a storm brought about 10 new inches of white stuff.

Around 14 to 16 inches of snow has fallen in southeastern Wyoming from near Cheyenne to west of Laramie since Wednesday night.

Again, this is what everyone in the eastern dealing with.

The ski area just south of Loveland Pass is the only one in Colorado that is still open for the year, and is hoping to reap the benefits of staying open so late.

The high temperature on Thursday is expected to be around 40 degrees, the weather service says.

The rain-snow mix will likely turn to snow again around 7 p.m. Thursday in Denver.

It will be mostly sunny on Saturday with a high of around 55 degrees.

There is another chance for rain and thunderstorms on Sunday when the high temperature could reach 64 degrees.
