As of 8 a.m. Friday, official snowfall in Denver since Wednesday was 1.4 inches which brings the total for the season to just over 15 inches. That’s more than 4 inches above normal through November 22. So yes, it’s definitely been a snowier than normal season so far in the metro area.

Once the snow ends statewide by late Friday evening, skies will clear allowing for plenty of sunshine this weekend. A total of 16 ski areas will be open starting Saturday which may be a record in Colorado before Thanksgiving. Genuine “blue bird” conditions will greet skiers and snowboarders over the weekend with at least 6 inches of fresh powder at most areas.
