Blizzard Conditions Reported on Colorado Slopes During Heavy Snow

Blizzard-like conditions affected Steamboat Springs, Colorado, during heavy snowfall on November 30, local media reported.

In a video shared by Larry Budwig, a resident of Steamboat Springs and an avid skiier, strong wings and heavy snow can be seen falling on the slopes of Steamboat Resort.

Budwig said: “Today was pretty brutal on the mountain. Heavy snow and incredible wind. Of course I went up skiing.”

Local media reported that more than a foot of snow was expected on November 30, which Mike Weissbluth, a local meteorologist, called an “intense event.”

“That comes as good news to skiers and riders wanting to take advantage of new terrain opening at Steamboat Resort, but the storm is expected to cause travel difficulties,” the Steamboat Pilot reported.

The National Weather Service said high wind warnings were in place on November 30 and the weather led to multiple road closures. Credit: Larry Budwig via Storyful
