Here’s a look at downtown Silverton, from the Silverton Standard & the Miner.

The editorial staff at The Durango Herald have had a lot of time to sit and write lately so they penned this editorial about…snow. Here’s an excerpt:

It [snow] does pretty well by us as well. It quenches our thirst, irrigates our crops and washes our clothes. We get to play with it in rafts, kayaks and inner tubes. And before all that, we get to slide around on it on skis, sleds, tubes and boards.

More coverage from the Vail Daily. From the article:

Wolf Creek Ski Area is reporting 55 inches of new snow powder since Tuesday…The resort has received 244 inches of snow so far this season.
