Boulder, Colorado - home to Skiing Magazine's offices - got snow this past week as well.

Boulder, Colorado – home to Skiing Magazine‘s offices – got snow this past week as well. “It’s snowy, says Chris Graner, an employee at Blue Valley Ski Rentals in Silverthorne, speaking of A-Basin, located a little under an hour and a half from Boulder. “I rode there last weekend as well as today, and it was way better today. They probably got like 15 inches in the past couple days. If it keeps up, it’s going to be great. But you don’t want to jinx it because what if it doesn’t snow again until after Christmas?

“I’ve been out four times. It’s been terrific, says Kristin Rizzardi, an employee at Loveland Sport Shops, of her home hill. “It’s been snowing for pretty much the past four days. Within two days, we’ve got about 16 inches. The forecast is calling for 8 to 18 inches and if it works out like it did last time, we should get 18.
