While the Denver metro may have enjoyed spring-like temperatures and a few rain showers to start off the work week, other parts of the state were in a whole other boat.

The high country was forecasted to see heavy snow on Monday and Tuesday, and that's exactly what happened.

Some areas, including Cameron Pass in Larimer County, were hit with nearly 3 feet of snow on Monday and Tuesday.

According to the National Weather Service, the aptly named Never Summer mountain range, as well as the Medicine Bow mountains, saw some of the heaviest snow.

The following areas saw over a foot of snow between Monday and Tuesday:

While the total does not appear on the official NWS report, Loveland Ski Area said it received 15 inches of new snow over 24 hours.

Other ski resorts also reported their own snow totals in their snow reports. This included Vail Ski Resort, which reported 12 inches over 24 hours and Copper Mountain, which reported 18 inches in the same time frame.

Many parts of the high country were still under a winter weather advisory until 3 p.m. Tuesday.
