Colorado desperately needed moisture and Mother Nature delivered in a big way with a massive snowstorm arriving Sunday afternoon that blanketed Eagle County into Monday.

By 9 p.m. Sunday, nearly 9 inches of snow had fallen in Vail.

Vail Daily photographer Chris Dillmann captured these images of the first big dump of the season.

Seasons collide Monday in Vail. The storm came in wet, which left roads slippery Sunday night into Monday morning.
