Short Range Forecast Discussion - Updated for Wednesday, July 01, 2015
A very persistent upper-level high pressure ridge is sitting over over the intermountain west, leaving Colorado under a northwest flow aloft, and most daily thunderstorm and shower activity to the south and east of Aspen. This changes a bit on Thursday, with an increase in T-storms, otherwise mostly sunny skies and above average temperatures continue all week. By Sunday and Monday we could see an upswing in thunderstorm activity as low pressure moving across southern Canada sends a cold front down south along the front ranges, and this may help focus extra energy and moisture across Colorado, for resultant thunderstorms and showers. Temperatures should drop off a bit due to this. CM

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 will be in effect this fall and winter, and is already present now. This would usually cause heavier rain and snow across California and the southwest US (winter). 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.
