While some towns on the western slope, such as Crested Butte, reported record snow, it was a different story on the east side of the Continental Divide.

In Denver it was the least snowiest fall and winter season since snow records began in 1882. Only 19.3 inches of snow was recorded at Denver International Airport between September 2016 and March 2017.

March only brought a trace of snow officially to the Mile High City, which tied for the least snowiest on record.
