The Record Setting Snowstorm Of 1913 Was The Biggest Blizzard In Denver History

Can you imagine having over 3.5 feet of snow accumulation in a matter of days? In 1913, this was a reality in Denver, and life in the city came to a screeching halt. After a blizzard swept over Colorado and other western states during the first part of December of that year, the snowfall in the Mile High City totaled 45.7 inches. That is a record that still stands strong today.
