The narrative above certainly doesn't square with the Climate Prediction Center's continuing forecast of below normal precipitation until the end of the year in the Rockies. I fervently hope that the CPC's forecast is wrong. With most of the US west of the Mississippi mired in serious drought, a wet winter is desperately needed.

Snowy Early, Cold in the Rockies
An active start to winter is expected in the central and southern Rockies with above-normal snowfall forecast for much of the region.
"We do expect above-normal snowfall for places like Albuquerque and just south of Salt Lake City. Denver will probably be near normal," Pastelok added. By the middle to latter part of the season, the active storm track and thus snowstorms should ease. However, a secondary peak in snow is normal for the Rockies late in the winter into the spring, so the region will not be entirely free of snow through late February and March. With significant snowpack established this winter, temperatures will be held below normal.

Forecasts are a lot like war plans; once the first shot is fired, the plan usually goes out the window.....

It sill includes Colorado so that is good for us anyway.

If we do get snow hopefully it will help the drought situation that Jazz's map shows.

Hoping to see some of that white stuff... The Colorado Daily Snow | OpenSnow
The forecast for my area looks promising from Wednesday night through Friday - potential for a foot of snow.

Pueblo got its first accumulating snowfall of the season. It was not much, about 1-2 inches in the city, so I did not make a video but I did take a picture last night.
