Colorado Snowpack Above Average, Snowmelt Heading to Lake Mead and Lake Powell

California and Colorado are both receiving impressive amounts of snow.

That’s good for us because snow in the Rocky Mountains ultimately ends up in the Colorado River, which leads to Lake Mead.

That snow is hitting places like the Copper Mountain Ski Resort, which sits 9,700 feet up in Frisco, Colorado. That’s about an hour and a half west of Denver.
