Short Range Forecast Discussion - Updated for Friday, May 22, 2015
Today through Sunday we expect cooler temperatures and increased showers across the area as low pressure out west moves in across the area, in a weakened state, mainly Saturday and Saturday night. Fairly significant snowfall up to 1/2 foot is possible Saturday through Saturday night mainly above 10,000 feet. Monday through Wednesday we see a gradual warming and drying trend as high pressure ridging aloft builds in across the central Rocky Mountains. Late next week and next weekend we may see an increase in daytime thunderstorms and showers again as low pressure across the northwest US directs a more southwest and moist wind flow aloft across the area.

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.
It looks like a strong El Nino may be in effect this fall and winter. This would usually cause heavier rain and snow across California and the southwest US. 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.
