Prayers have been answered across Colorado ski country.

Snow has piled up rapidly in Summit County, with Keystone Resort reporting 15 inches of fresh powder - the most claimed by any of the state's ski areas. Vail Resorts posted big totals at its other member resorts, with Vail Mountain and Breckenridge Ski Resort each getting 10-plus inches.

Neighbors Arapahoe Basin and Loveland ski areas also celebrated powder days, with hopes of another thanks to a storm that was expected to continue through Tuesday night. The two areas welcomed 14 inches in 24 hours.

Of Colorado Ski Country's 23 member resorts, A-Basin on Tuesday measured the deepest midmountain depth at 58 inches.

Telluride Ski Resort observed "the bulk" of Tuesday's storm had passed by noon, leaving 12 inches of snow.
