Colorado mountain towns have experienced record snowfall this year and there’s still plenty of time left for skiers and snowboarders to get out there and enjoy some spring riding at select resorts.
The 2018-2019 snow season in Colorado came with a mixture of chaos including dangerous avalanches and a bomb cyclone that left more than 1,000 people stranded. Overall, it’s been a pretty crazy year for Colorado.
