In the land of peaks and powder, Colorado faced a snowstorm so epic, it turned the state into the inside of a snow globe—shaken, not stirred. This wasn't just any flurry; this was the Snowpocalypse, the Blizzard to End All Blizzards.

In the winter of 2003, Mother Nature decided to throw a party in Colorado, and she didn't skimp on the confetti. Over a few unforgettable days, the skies opened up to dump an astonishing 6.6 feet (yes, feet!) of snow in some areas. This wasn't your run-of-the-mill winter wonderland; it was more of a "find your car under a snow dune" kind of deal. Denver itself was buried under about 31.8 inches of the white stuff, effectively putting the city on a snow day timeout.
