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

Loveland is Colorado's closest major ski area to Denver, located on the Continental Divide and just short of the Eisenhower Tunnel in the Arapaho National Forest. Loveland is the 10th largest ski resort in Colorado. You get 1,365 acres of crisp, Rocky Mountain snow with 70 runs to choose from and nine lifts whisking you up to the top. On-mountain improvements include upgraded snowmaking and grooming with the addition of six new fan guns, four new Piston Bully grooming machines and a winch cat. To get the lay of the land, take a complimentary, 90-minute mountain tour. Meet at the top of Chair #1 at 10:30 a.m. every day. Loveland is actually two ski areas connected by a long, horizontal lift and a shuttle bus. Loveland Basin, with terrain for all abilities, has five chairs and a Poma lift serving 901 acres. Loveland Valley, which caters to beginners, has two lifts serving just 67 acres. Even good skiers, however, should investigate the Valley on windy days. Its tree-sheltered runs can harbor excellent snow when the Basin's slopes grow firm. If you ski as if you're on fire and you aren't afraid of heights, Loveland is your dream come true.
