Colorado just got hit with a huge storm and everyone’s freaking out

Comments by /

Skiers in the Centennial State were graced with a good two feet of pow this week, resulting in some unexpected and incredible May powder days.

Plenty of folks have been venturing into the backcountry and earning their turns, but meanwhile the only resort open in the state, Arapahoe Basin, is getting absolutely slammed with visitors. Tons of people understandably want to take advantage of what might be the last storm of the 2016-17 season and, despite the traffic and parking mayhem, the media below shows that everyone’s having a hell of a time out there.

The proof is in the snow stakes; over 20 inches of snow has blanketed Colorado with more on the way
