KUSA - The recent snowfall is getting the state closer to normal snowpack levels.
The Dillon Reservoir, which makes up 25 percent of Denver's drinking water, is down about 33 feet. It was supposed to be down by 37 feet.
Recent storms and Tuesday's bonus snow have helped boost the snowpack which moved up a few percentage points in recent days.
Snowpack is now at 78 percent of normal, a number both the Dillon and Frisco Marina's like to see.
"I didn't expect this at all. We had 6 to 8 inches of fresh snow, " Frisco Marina Manager Phil Hofer said.
Despite low levels, both will be open this spring and summer. They're preparing for low water levels but hoping that this recent snow cycle will continue to make levels better than expected.
