Short Range Forecast Discussion
This forecast is brought to you courtesy of Aspen-Snowmass Resort
Short Range Forecast Discussion - Updated for Saturday, April 25, 2015 This morning we see some accumulating snowfall even to 8,500 feet (Saturday morning), mostly above 9,500 feet, but the weak low (upper level weather disturbance) crosses to the south so we are not expecting much for Aspen and other northern resorts. Sunday and Monday look interesting, and we expect a significant storm for the front range and Summit/ Grand County areas, with moderate snow for Aspen and vicinity, plus southwest Colorado should see heavy snow. The front range and divide should see over 1 foot of snow. Later Monday and Tuesday clears out and warms up after low pressure exits. CM please see the detail in the long range forecast below.

Long Range Forecast Discussion:

7 day to 2 week+ forecast (since 1998) - 27 April to 05 May, 2015 - Pacific Northwest/ Northern California/ UTAH/ COLORADO/ northern New Mexico: Late April and into early May continues fairly busy (frequent snow) storm-wise, with more storms across the western US, including for the Pacific Northwest and northern Rocky Mountains. For Utah-Colorado-northern New Mexico, we expect a chance for snow late next week (30th April-early May) as low pressure moves into the western US, delivering snow, but mostly to areas above 9,000 feet most likely. After early May we see more stable conditions and more dominant high pressure ridging aloft, with warming and mostly sunny skies and the usual afternoon thunderstorm activity. Tahoe-Mammoth, the northern/ central Sierra Nevada Mountains and the Cascades of WA/ OR we could see frequent snowfall, some significant, later next Monday and the whole week, into early May. We are hoping for some snow pack. CM

Vail Ski Resort was founded in 1962 and since then the community and the ski area have matured into a destination resort for people around the globe. Evolving from a logging community prior to its discovery by the late 10th Mountain Division soldier and pioneer Pete Seibert and his friend, Earl Eaton, Vail now typifies a Tyrolean village with signature landmarks such as the Covered Bridge and the Clock Tower. Creative storefronts including restaurants, bars and boutiques line Bridge Street (framed by the Covered Bridge to the north) in Vail Village. The Town of Vail is home to numerous outdoor parks, water features, statues, artwork and more. As the largest single mountain ski resort in North America with 5,289 acres Vail offers distinctly different terrain and vistas spread 7 miles across the front side, the legendary Back Bowls and Blue Sky Basin. Magnificent backdrops, including the 14,000-foot Mount of the Holy Cross and the Gore, Sawatch mountain ranges surround the resort. Locals are known for their legendary tales and are open to sharing insider's tips on the best ways to ski and ride the mountain. The welcoming community takes everything in stride and is proud to share its amenities.
