Telluride’s snow report is in the bag
Posted On July 26, 2021
The Tellurides snow report for 2017 is in.
The Colorado city reported a whopping 14.7 inches in February, which is well below the 15.9 inches recorded in February 2016.
But while the city didn’t quite meet the 14-inch mark, it did beat the previous record set by Denver, which was 15.8 inches in March of 2016.
It was just a tad below the record set in 2017.
“We’re very pleased with our snowfall for 2017, which we did get above the record of 14.5 inches set in February of 2016,” said Jennifer Dvorak, Director of the City of Tellurie.
The snowfall came just a week after Telluridis first snowfall of the year, which reached 11.3 inches.
While Telluries snowfall didn’t exceed the previous year, the snow is expected to be greater this winter, which will make it more challenging to hit the 15-inch level, according to Dvoraks. “
The weather has been so bad, it was challenging for us to get all the snow we needed to get into the city,” Dvoracks said.
While Telluries snowfall didn’t exceed the previous year, the snow is expected to be greater this winter, which will make it more challenging to hit the 15-inch level, according to Dvoraks.
“I think it will be more challenging this winter,” Dviak said.
The new snow is also likely to have a positive impact on tourism and business.
“It will make Telluris business and tourism feel more productive and it will also make it easier to get tourists to Tellur,” Dvorsak said of the snowfall.
Telluric’s mayor, Mark Loehr, said he was “delighted” by the snow, which he described as a “big win for our town.”
He also credited the city with being “tough and resilient” and credited the county, which had a record number of snowfall, for the citys recovery.
“People are looking for the best and we have a good team of people who are really looking out for us and the county,” Loehs said.
