Short Range Forecast Discussion
(Updated Wednesday, 28Jan) It looks like most areas of the western US will see some snow this weekend...
To start off the coming weekend, Friday and Saturday, we expect significant snow across the southwest US including Arizona, Colorado, and northern New Mexico, with some heavy totals expected, and some lighter snow for Utah, Wyoming, and Montana. The dominant pattern is high pressure ridging overhead for Tahoe to Mammoth, Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and southwest Canada Friday/ Saturday, with mostly sunny and relatively mild conditions. On Sunday we see the southwest US storm drop into Mexico with clearing snow and clouds (mostly sunny) for all southwest US areas, except for some lingering snow across New Mexico. For the Pacific Northwest US (including the Inland Northwest, north Idaho) and southwest Canada, we expect a fairly significant storm to move in with moderate snowfall potential at the resorts. CM

7 day to 2 week+ forecast (since 1998) - 02 to 12 February, 2015 - UTAH/ COLORADO/ NEW MEXICO: High pressure ridging builds in over the southwest US early February (Monday and Tuesday, 2nd/ 3rd), with chilly temperatures and mostly sunny skies after a nice snowfall for most areas. By later Tuesday and through Wednesday, Thursday morning (3rd-5th), another storms moves in, this one out of the northwest, with colder air and snow blasting in for northern Utah, Colorado, and northern New Mexico. Moderate snow for Utah, moderate to heavy for Colorado (favoring northern areas including Aspen), and light to moderate for northern New Mexico including Taos Ski Valley. The snow hangs on longer for Taos as the storm exits to the south. Following this storm, we see strong high pressure ridging all across the western US, with sunny and milder conditions through the 8th (California) - 10th (Colorado). Pacific storms move in after this, and we are expecting February to be more active across the west, more specifically the southwest US, but including Colorado and northern New Mexico, for more frequent and possibly significant snowfalls. NORTHWEST US and SOUTHWEST CANADA: High pressure ridging builds in over the southwest US early February (Monday and Tuesday, 2nd/ 3rd), and a fairly strong storm blasts into the area up and over this ridge, with heavy snowfall possible across the inland Northwest ski areas. This storm should be cold enough to drop some good amounts of lighter powder across the inland Northwest US including north Idaho and northwest Montana, and also including the Washington Cascades and southwest Canada, minus the annoying rains we have been seeing in the last several weeks. Following this storm, we see strong high pressure ridging all across the western US, with sunny and milder conditions through the 8th/ 9th for the northwest US and southwest Canada. Pacific storms move in after this, and we are expecting February to be more active across the west, more specifically the southwest US, but including the northwest US/ southwest Canada as well, for more frequent and possibly significant snowfalls. TAHOE/ MAMMOTH/ NORTHERN SIERRA; High pressure ridging builds in over the southwest US early February (Monday and Tuesday, 2nd/ 3rd), and the south end of a strong Pac NW storm moves through the area up and over this ridge, with light snowfall possible for Tahoe ski areas including Squaw and Alpine Meadows. This storm may have some snow level issues, with snow levels near 7,000 feet possible. Following this storm, we see strong high pressure ridging all across the western US, with sunny and milder conditions through the 8th or so. Pacific storms move in after this, and we are expecting February (as has seemed to be the case a lot in the last few years) to be more active across the west, more specifically the southwest US, but including Tahoe-Mammoth as well, for more frequent and significant snowfalls. SOUTHWEST US AND SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA; High pressure ridging builds in over the southwest US early February (Monday and Tuesday, 2nd/ 3rd), with mostly sunny skies but some Santa Ana wind possible (helps with snow making). Following this period, we see strong high pressure ridging all across the western US, with sunny and milder conditions through the 8th-9th or so. Pacific storms move in after this, and we are expecting February (as has seemed to be the case a lot in the last few years) to be more active across the west, more specifically the southwest US, including Mountain High and SoCal resort areas. WYOMING/ SOUTHWEST MONTANA: High pressure ridging builds in over the southwest US early February (Monday and Tuesday, 2nd/ 3rd), and a fairly strong storm blasts into the area up and over this ridge for Tuesday/ Wednesday, with moderate to heavy snowfall possible across southwest Montana and Wyoming ski areas. This storm should be cold enough to drop some significant amounts of light powder across the area. Following this storm, we see strong high pressure ridging all across the western US, with sunny and milder conditions through the 9th/ 10th. Pacific storms move in after this, and we are expecting February to be pretty active across the west, more specifically the southwest US, including southwest Montana/ Wyoming resort areas.

We have the highest base elevation for any major ski resort in the Lake Tahoe area. Kirkwood also has the most snowfall this season for any resort in the Sierra. The mountain is often frequented by pro riders and skiers because the terrain is the most diverse of the local ski resorts. You can spend the day turning down a groomed run, shooting the half pipes, jibs, and rails in our terrain parks, bombing down a hair raising steep thick with untracked powder, or hucking yourself off a cornice at the peak. Whatever your preference, Kirkwood can accomodate it. Named one of the top 10 over all resorts in TransWorld Snow, Kirkwood is truly a Tahoe "must ski/ride.” Offering Lake Tahoe's highest base elevation for some of North America's deepest, driest snow. 2,300 acres of wide-open terrain promises something for everyone, from gentle groomed trails to hair-raising steeps and chutes. The resort was rated amongst the top 10 places to learn to ski by USA today and offers innovative First-Time Skier and Snowboarding programs on its wide, gentle slopes. The Children's Center makes skiing more convenient for families and fun for kids. Kirkwood also features a freestyle terrain park, half pipe, tubing hill, 80k of scenic cross country skiing, dog sled rides, and more. Looking for an escape from the frenzy of the modern world? Surrounded in every direction by endless miles of Wilderness and Forest Service Land, Kirkwood offers the unique balance of a world-class mountain with all the creature comforts in a pristine sanctuary.
