"Winter weather advisory." With the Breckenridge Dew Tour just three weeks away, these are three words we've been waiting to hear. A heavy winter storm is currently pelting the resort and is forecast to bring four- to ten-inches of snow to the area overnight, according to the National Weather Service.

Snow guns are currently firing at Breckenridge helping to add to the base for opening day, now scheduled for this Saturday, November 19.
