MOSTLY SUNNY FOR MOST OF THE WESTERN US AND WESTERN CANADA RESORT AREAS

Except for the northern Rocky Mountains and Cascades, we expect mostly sunny skies and milder temperatures for most of the west this weekend. Next week (through the 12th of February) looks dry and mild for all western US areas including southwest Canada as a strong high pressure ridge gives the eastern US a return of winter. Next Wednesday (10th) areas like Whistler, BC and southwest Canada will start to see some higher mountain snows (minor snow level issues, then colder with snow top to bottom Thursday/ Friday (11th/ 12th). Late next week and weekend (12th on), we start to see Pacific storms moving into the US west coast again and affecting most of the western US for 5-7 days, maybe more. The first storm moves in on Friday (12th), affecting the WA and OR Cascades, and Tahoe-Mammoth first, then Utah on Saturday (13th), and moving into Colorado by Sunday (14th). This storm should be strong enough to drop a foot or more, which would be "moderate" snow for Tahoe.

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), including southern California ski resorts and the southwest US this winter. This has been (as predicted) 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

Northstar-at-Tahoe's comfortable attitude comes from the fact that we're a comfortable size. Northstar has 79 runs on 2,480 acres. It's big enough to keep things interesting, but no so big that getting around becomes daunting. New signage and grooming maps this year make it easier than ever to get around the resort and know where you want to start and end your day. For those who often find themselves struggling to decide whether to make a park lap or a powder run, The Stash offers the perfect solution. A collaborative new concept created by Jake Burton and Snow Park Technologies (SPT), The Stash combines park riding with backcountry feel and features...so skiers and riders can get their powder and park fix all in one run. Every once in a while you need to cast off some of the trappings of civilization and pay attention to stuff that matters. Stuff like reclaiming a goggle tan, or seeing your friend do his impression of the agony of defeat” guy. Northstar Resort is the kind of place where these things can happen. Up here life is unrushed and unrehearsed. You're allowed to improvise. There is no scene - just people who enjoy being on the mountain. It feels like home, but you're encouraged to act like you're on vacation. This season, Northstar Resort is proud to announce the opening of new doors in the Village at Northstar including a variety of specialty shops, restaurants, art galleries and more. In addition, during summer 2006, the resort launched the next phase of its extensive mountain improvement plan, which included the addition of two new lifts, relocating the cross-country center, adding new parking lots, expanding its snowmaking system and opening additional terrain.
