The slopes at Loveland Ski Area haven't seen as much fresh powder as usual this winter.

The 2020-2021 ski season has seen 84 inches fall on Loveland Ski Area as of Jan. 12, 2021  — the ski and snowboard area had 146 inches at the same point last year.

So far, 26 of the 28 snowfalls have been 6 inches or less. None of the storms have been over 10 inches, which is incredibly rare.

Fox 31 Meteorologist Chris Tomer theorizes the drop is snow could be attributed to La Nina, an ocean temperature pattern that tends to produce faster-moving weather systems.

Fortunately, Loveland Ski Area is still open to recreators. The ski resort is hoping to host its annual mountaintop mass wedding on Valentine's Day.
