Winter Park Daily Snow

Season Wrap-Up

Reminder: Winter Park is closed, and Mary Jane will be open through May 12th.

In my final daily post on Monday, April 22, I provided a season overview with a snowpack graphic. Click here to see that discussion:

Wednesday morning (May 1)

As expected, Tuesday was a mixed day with some sun, some clouds, and a few showers. Then intense snow hit on Tuesday night, dropping a quick 4 inches on the mountain. Other mountain regions to our north and south saw 2x this amount of snow, so it looks like the intense snow band happened to skip the I-70 region of Colorado. Bummer!

But, 4 inches should ski pretty well since temperatures are about 5F colder than Tuesday morning. This new snow will still be thicker and surfy, but it will be a little lighter than Tuesday, and any hint of cool temperatures are a bonus now that we’re in early May!

Snow showers should stick around through Wednesday morning, maybe bringing an additional 1-3 inches.

Then we’ll see dry weather from May 2-7 with another chance for snow between May 8-10.

Thanks so much for reading the Winter Park Daily Snow this season, and for your support of myself, OpenSnow, and Winter Park!

I hope that you have a great summer and I’ll see you back here for daily updates in November 2019.
