From The Denver Post (Tom McGhee/Ryan Parker):

The storm has dumped up to 6 inches of snow in the Denver area and is expected to add another 4 inches through the evening, according to Jim Kalina, a National Weather Service meteorologist Boulder.

From the Summit County Citizens Voice (Bob Berwyn):

A storm rolling across the state Saturday night delivered the goods, with every ski area in Colorado reporting new snow Sunday morning. Totals (24 hour) ranged from 11 inches at Monarch to six inches and Wolf Creek and Steamboat, at opposite ends of the state. Most resorts in between also reported about a half a foot of new snow Sunday morning.

The parched Front Range and plains also got relief, with heavy snow especially across northeastern Colorado. Just a few days ago, parts of the plains were under a red flag fire warning. The National Weather Service blizzard warning for the area east of Denver remains in effect through 11 p.m. Sunday evening.
