Saturday Snapshot – More April Snow

Sam Basel April 18, 2009

Estes Park was hammered with more than 2 feet of snow within the last couple of days. Late Spring snows like this are fairly typical in March and April. This just happened to be a bit bigger than normal! The snow fell thick and heavy with rates of accumulation as much as 1 to 2 inches per hour. One nice thing about heavy spring snow storms in Estes Park is the snow doesn’t last long. We are predicted to be in the 60s next week! Now that we had fun in the snow for hopefully one last time, I’m ready to enjoy Estes Park’s spectacular summers!
