A few words on the Snow at Snowy Range

Snowy Range has no detail snow data, but we accept the published average of 245 inches snowfall, due to its location in the northern but lower extension of Colorado's Front Range.

Accumulation and Preservation

Snowy Range’s early season openings are probably about average due to its moderate terrain and cold climate. Primary exposure is east. Snowy Range like many resorts should have its most reliable snow conditions from mid-January to mid-March.
