More big snow is on the way to Colorado for the foreseeable future, at least according to the 15-day forecast in most high-altitude parts of the state.

According to OpenSnow, up to 10 inches should be expected in the high country by Saturday morning, adding on to the 10-30 inches that fell on Wednesday night. Their top three resorts for finding powder over the next 5-days include Wolf Creek (23 inches), Purgatory (21 inches), and Snowmass (19 inches).

What’s even more noteworthy is how consistently snow will likely be falling around the state over the next two weeks.

Breckenridge, for example, has snow on the radar for 10 of the next 12 days, with 8 of those days consecutive.

Vail has some sort of precipitation on the radar for the next 15 consecutive days. Note that this is a mix of rain and snow, with temperatures hovering around freezing.

Aspen has snow on the radar for a stretch of 9 consecutive days, at times mixed with rain. It’s also worth noting that precipitation is possible here 15 out of 15 forecasted days, with 13 of those days at a 30% chance or higher of rain or snow.

In the southwest part of the state, Telluride is looking at 9 consecutive days of snow over the next 15 days.

With avalanche dangers already extremely high, the incoming snow has some worried. Avalanches in Colorado have engulfed cars, shut down resorts, and killed skiers already this month.
