Accumulations in some areas are totaling as much as 6 feet.

Every resort received new snow and double-digit snow totals were reported at many resorts through Colorado ski country from Aspen to Wolf Creek.

While the mountains were hardest hit, the entire metro area received a fresh coating of snow, which caused a headache for commuters. Moderate to heavy mountain snow will be falling in the northern and central mountains from Tuesday evening through Thursday evening with 10 to 20 inches possible by the time the storm ends late in the day on Thursday.

Silverton Mountain got 78 inches. Check out what it looked like at Silverthorn by watching this video:

Purgatory at Durango registered 37 inches, just edging out Wold Creek who got 36 inches.

Powderhorn on the Western Slope got more than 30 inches themselves.

Steamboat captured just over 26 inches, while Telluride welcomed 23 inches.

In the Central Mountains, Sunlight Mountain saw 20 inches fall, Monarch boasted 18 inches and Crested Butte got 17 inches.

Aspen Highlands and Snowmass both reported a foot of new snow from the storm while Aspen and Buttermilk both reported 8 inches.
