Snow, snow and more snow

Families took to the unofficial sledding hill on the northeast corner of Castle Pines Parkway and Monarch Boulevard for some fun in the snow.

The recent January 17-18 snowfall, which shutdown Douglas County School District, blanketed the state. The mountains received a foot of snow, Denver received 8 inches, Castle Pines received 4.5 inches, and Castle Rock received 10 inches, according to National Weather Service statistics, as of 9:30 a.m. on January 18.

With more than enough snowpack on city open space, residents took to the popular hill on one of Castle Pines’ busiest intersections for a day of sledding.
