DENVER (CBS4) – It’s a number that’s hard to believe unless you live in the eastern San Juan Mountains of Colorado.

But since the first flakes began to fly in late October there has been 269″ of snow measured at the Wolf Creek Ski Area.

According to the first measurable snow of the 2015-2016 season fell at Wolf Creek on October 22.

153″ – Loveland
143″ – Purgatory
