Thus, those looking for deep snow need to be thinking backcountry turns in the Front Range foothills or hitting one of the smaller, lesser known ski areas like Eldora or Echo Mountain. Eldora reports 31" in the past 48 hours, whereas Echo Mountain reports 55".
I'd never even heard of Echo Mountain until I saw it pop up on the snow report. It is a very small mountain with only 660 feet of vertical. I suspect that most of the terrain is not steep enough to enable one to make turns in snow this deep. Even if it is, it's closed this morning for a "snowdash event!"
Ah, the joys of skiing Colorado...
