A strong, slow moving low pressure system produced a heavy early-season
snowfall for the mountains of northern and central Utah and Colorado.

The following preliminary values were obtained from a combination of
automated sensors and manual reports...

Elkheads, Park Range and Flattops: 10 to 18 inches,
      with locally higher up to 28" at Tower.

Steamboat Ski Area received about 18 inches.

Gore and Elk Mountains: 6 to 12 inches,
      with up to 14 inches reported at Vail Pass.

Grand Mesa: 2 to 5 inches.

West Elk and Sawatch Range: 4 to 8 inches.

Northern Valleys: 2 to 4 inches near Dinosaur, Craig, Meeker
      and Hayden.
      6 to 12 inches in the Yampa River Basin
      including Steamboat Springs.


The southern mountains remained too warm for any
appreciable snowfall in these areas.
