From the Associated Press via The Colorado Springs Gazette:

Snowfall from the latest storm to hit Colorado’s mountains has already surpassed 4 feet around Wolf Creek Pass.

The Wolf Creek Ski Area says it has received 52 inches of snow as of Tuesday morning from the storm that moved in Friday.

The National Weather Service says another 3 to 6 inches of snow are expected there and other spots above 10,000 feet in the eastern San Juan Mountains Tuesday. A blizzard warning remains in effect there through 5 p.m. because of gusty southwest winds.
