TODAY through THURSDAY - Today a very weak system clips the area, but just with some clouds and some mostly isolated snow showers (Aspen is reporting some as of 7am), otherwise expect the sun to show up. By Sunday and Monday a strong ridge of high pressure builds in to the west, shoving the storm track further east, as a large scale low pressure trough develops over the eastern US. This sunny and milder weather should hold through the 13th, followed by frequent Pacific snow storms starting next Sunday (14th) and into late February (at least a week of unsettled/ snowy weather starting after the 13th, on track). Significant snow is possible. CM

7 day to 2 week+ forecast (since 1998) -
(Updated 31Jan2016) - Expect high pressure ridging and clearing/ milder weather to hold, and then after the 13th we see more storms hitting the western US, favoring California at first.

Winter into Spring - The El Nino SST pattern is strong, right now, and it looks like we will see a VERY strong El Nino continue for the rest of this winter. This set-up would usually cause heavier rain and snow across California (mainly southern and central, including Tahoe (Tahoe is already seeing a better season than they have had in years) mainly after mid-January, including southern California ski resorts, as the epic 1997-1998 season can attest to) and the southwest US this winter. This would be a vast improvement for Tahoe-Mammoth. Southwest Colorado and northern New Mexico usually do well, including Taos Ski Valley, who had a great season in 2014-2015 with the weak El Nino(ish) anomaly. Aspen is in between, and we would say average snowfall should be expected at Aspen-Snowmass in 2015-2016, which would make for a good year. We will be monitoring the progress of this right here, stay tuned... 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.
