Short Range Forecast Discussion - Updated for Tuesday, September 01, 2015
Today, we see a strong and cold low pressure system continuing to affect parts of the northwest US, and places Colorado under continued decent moisture and fair thunderstorm and shower potential mainly this afternoon, with milder temperatures. By Wednesday we are looking mostly dry, breezy, and milder (great hiking weather), and mostly thunderstorm-free for Aspen, though afternoon thunderstorms linger for the San Juan Mountains/ southwest Colorado, and on the peaks adjacent to Aspen. Thursday and the weekend we see an upswing in thunderstorms and showers again, as renewed low pressure energy across the Pacific Northwest starts to draw some subtropical moisture in across the desert southwest and Colorado.

Long Range Forecast Discussion:

7 day to 2 week+ forecast (since 1998) - We plan to bring this back in the fall, unless we receive interest in firing the longer range forecast back up, sooner.

The El Nino SST pattern is strong, right now, and it looks like we will see a VERY strong El Nino this fall and winter, possibly stronger than the 1997-1998 version, which is the strongest (in terms of SST anomaly) on record. This set-up would usually cause heavier rain and snow across California (mainly southern and central, possibly including Tahoe, but especially including Mountain High and Big Bear, 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. We will be posting a detailed outlook for Aspen-Snowmass, Squaw Valley/ Tahoe, Mountain High, and Taos Ski Valley in the coming months. We will be monitoring the progress of this right here, stay tuned... CM

Keystone is home to three magnificent mountain playgrounds—Dercum Mountain, North Peak, and The Outback. There’s something special for every skier and rider of any level at each mountain. There are more than 3,000 vertical feet and over 3,000 acres of bumps and bowls, glades and steeps, groomers and rollers to be experienced.
