Also record cold.

The 63 inches of snowfall at Steamboat shattered its previous record of 40, while Breckenridge broke its old record of 46 inches when it hit 48. Keystone’s 44 inches beat the previous record according to the Denver Post. Meanwhile, Arapahoe Basin, which opened on Oct. 11, tweeted that its snowpack stands at 160% of average.

With more than 40 inches of snowfall through October, Winter Park Resort opened on Saturday, Nov. 2, the earliest the resort has opened for skiing and riding.

The record October snowfall has also prompted several other Colorado ski areas to open early.
