BRECKENRIDGE, Colo. (CBS4) – Breckenridge Resort hit and surpassed the 300 inch mark for the ski season on Sunday. According to Sara Lococo, the Senior Communications Manager at Breckenridge, the resort is reporting more than a foot of fresh snow as of Sunday morning.
What was expected to be a few inches turned into more than a foot!
“Woke up today at like 5 a.m. and it was about an inch, and then I checked the snow stake a couple of hours later, and it was more than a foot. I was like ‘all right I better get out there,’” Lococo told CBS4 Sunday afternoon.
Lococo’s job is to help tell the story that is Breckenridge resort. She says she found inspiration today out on the slopes.
“It’s incredible. February has definitely delivered,” Lococo said.
Hitting the 300 inch mark is an accomplishment. Hitting it this early in the season in a month not typically known for this much snow is a big bonus.
“To put that in perspective our season average is about 353 inches, and we still have three months of the season left, and we’ve already hit 300 inches,” Lococo added.

All of this snow means conditions later this season, well into May, will give skiers and snowboarders lots more to celebrate.
Resorts tally and make the snow results official at 5 a.m. on Monday. Steamboat Ski Resort is close behind.
And it’s still snowing.
