A little bit of fresh snow here and there from the quick moving storm on Thursday night. New snow here is as of Friday morning. Storm totals are from Wednesday night through Friday morning. The “This Week” totals also include snow from President’s weekend last weekend. Temps are cooling back down this weekend, so the snow should be mostly groomed packed powder.
