April conditions have been incredible in Breckenridge for powder hounds.
The resort recorded 15 inches of new snowfall in the 24 hour period from the morning of Tuesday, April 4, to Wednesday, April 5, totaling 29 inches in the last week. Add that to the 30 inches Breckenridge had received since wintery conditions started returning around March 24, and you have 45 inches in 2 weeks.
