The Snowiest Spot in Colorado - Crested Butte

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Aspen Lane Real Estate Colorful Colorado CRE# 40005863

Crested Butte, Colorado has had their fair share of snow this month.  They have had an additional 90" of snow fall in the past 10 days.  That is 7.5 feet!

 

The town's maintenance workers have been working from dawn to dusk loading dump trucks with snow from the downtown area. Their 8 hour shifts are turning in to 15 hour shifts and once they get some of the snow cleared, more falls!

 

 

Homeowners are worried about their roofs collapsing and spending their daylight hours trying to clear the mounds.

 

Most of the residents and visitors to Crested Butte are celebrating the mountains of snow.  According to the Denver Post - many feel as though they are living in a snow globe and want Mother Nature to shake the globe again.

Hi Belinda

I was watching the news and the weather channel the other night and they went on quite abit about Creted Butte. I can't imagine that much snow, and after a while where do you put it? Greaat for skiin I suppose but a hassle for getting around and for homeowners!

Those are cool photos Belinda and I mean that literally.

I love Colorado and have enjoyed skiing in the Winter and hiking in the Summer. It makes me think of my dearly departed Dad and how he turned me on to the great state of Colorado as a kid.

Belinda,

Great picures, and we have noticed that Denver is expecting snow after 2PM.  It looks like the drought prediction for your area is going to go away given all the snow fall thus far.  A

Hi Belinda Spillman - It is so hard to imagine that much snow.  I know I would be worred about my roof as well.  It must be tough to get around town.

Belinda I saw a news feature about Breckenridge. So much snow that a hotel had to be evacuated as the roof fell through and then started a fire as it broke a gas line.  Crazy amounts of snow.  I rememeber times like this when I lived near Vail -  not a chance I was going anywhere for a few days.

Very nice Belinda.

I love snow and keep my snow banks around until spring, taking advantage of the insulating properties of this wintry gift.

Belinda, unbelievable snow fall in Crested Butte. I believe there are several places in CO with huge snow accumulations.

Wow!  Thanks for telling us about Crested Butte. I am too old for that much shoveling. 

We are expecting some snow on Saturday in Maryland but ice is a bigger worry.

OMG! Saw a picture on the news this morning where the high level of snow even shut down some ski lifts. Will just sit here today enjoying my 72 degree day, thank you very much.
