I've found your Kirkwood forecast to be the most on-point forecast for the entire region for about eight years, especially when I lived in Reno/Tahoe. Matter of fact, I've been watching closely now that I live in the PNW and travel south for the storms. It's NEVER let me down!

Chris at continues his magic for all of us skiers and riders. He has been spot on all winter and guided me to some huge pow days in Colorado and Utah. Thanks for your hard work and dedication!

I've enjoyed using your website since either the 99/00 or the 00/01 ski seasons. At that time I was a professional ski patroller and was suggested to me as the only accurate place to get our local weather...

I'm the type of guy that accesses your reports from the link on our employee portal homepage, and then visits 2 or 3 other weather outlets with my eyes focusing on the forecasted snow totals. You were by far the most accurate last season...

US outlook
Updated September 18, 2017 UNSETTLED ACROSS THE WEST --> This week we expect a few Gulf of Alaska storms to move through the western US, and drops snow to some mountain areas across Washington, Oregon (Cascades), Idaho, Montana, Wyoming (northern Rocky Mountains), California, Nevada (Tahoe), and Utah (Wasatch). By Saturday we may see some snow for Colorado also, as the trough weakens, warms up some, and shifts east. Luckily, the mountains and resorts in Colorado are so elevated, that despite the warming, snow is still possible. More details are coming. The East Coast (+ the resorts) will be sitting under a high pressure ridge, with warmer than average weather. CM ThisWeek_18sep BY and AFTER THIS WEEKEND... High pressure ridging will start to dominate the western US, for quite a late summer season warm-up. This should affect all areas, though Colorado will be dealing with some unsettled weather to start (Sat and Sun). This ridge over the west should last through 7 to 10 days, turning unsettled again (storms) after the first few days of October, but more so by the 10th or so as low pressure deepens across the west (colder, snow more likely for many areas).
