Short Range Forecast Discussion
This free forecast is brought to you courtesy of Aspen-Snowmass Resort
Short Range Forecast Discussion - Updated for Sunday, February 01, 2015: Today clears out for all areas, and looks like a great day to be on the slopes! Tonight through Wednesday we see some weather disturbances move in on a strong northwest flow aloft, for moderate to possibly heavy snow for northern areas, more moderate for Aspen-Snowmass, and kicking off with snow showers, mostly light, tonight. The best snowfall for Aspen looks like it will fall on Wednesday, as a more defined weather system moves in, with moderate snow totals. Show up on Thursday, as we see clearing while the last low pressure system exits, and higher pressure ridging aloft builds in. The conditions should be great. Friday and next weekend look milder and mostly sunny under stronger high pressure ridging. CM please see the detail in the long range forecast below.

7 day to 2 week+ forecast (since 1998) - 02 to 12 February, 2015 - UTAH/ COLORADO/ NEW MEXICO: High pressure ridging builds in over the southwest US early February (Monday), with chilly temperatures and mostly sunny skies after a nice snowfall for most areas. By later Monday, Tuesday and through Wednesday, Thursday morning (3rd-5th), more storms move in, these out of the northwest, with colder air and snow blasting in for northern Utah, Colorado, and northern New Mexico. Moderate snow for Utah, moderate to heavy for Colorado (favoring northern areas including Aspen), and light to moderate for northern New Mexico including Taos Ski Valley. The snow hangs on longer for Taos as the storm exits to the south. Following this storm, we see strong high pressure ridging all across the western US, with sunny and milder conditions through the 8th (California) - 10th (Colorado). Pacific storms move in after this, and we are expecting February to be more active across the west, more specifically the southwest US, but including Colorado and northern New Mexico, for more frequent and possibly significant snowfalls. NORTHWEST US and SOUTHWEST CANADA: High pressure ridging builds in over the southwest US early February (Monday and Tuesday, 2nd/ 3rd), and a fairly strong storm blasts into the area up and over this ridge, with heavy snowfall possible across the inland Northwest ski areas. This storm should be cold enough to drop some good amounts of lighter powder across the inland Northwest US including north Idaho and northwest Montana, and also including the Washington Cascades and southwest Canada, minus the annoying rains we have been seeing in the last several weeks. Following this storm, we see strong high pressure ridging all across the western US, with sunny and milder conditions through the 8th/ 9th for the northwest US and southwest Canada. Pacific storms move in after this, and we are expecting February to be more active across the west, more specifically the southwest US, but including the northwest US/ southwest Canada as well, for more frequent and possibly significant snowfalls. TAHOE/ MAMMOTH/ NORTHERN SIERRA; High pressure ridging builds in over the southwest US early February (Monday and Tuesday, 2nd/ 3rd), and the south end of a strong Pac NW storm moves through the area up and over this ridge, with light snowfall possible for Tahoe ski areas including Squaw and Alpine Meadows. This storm may have some snow level issues, with snow levels near 7,000 feet possible. Following this storm, we see strong high pressure ridging all across the western US, with sunny and milder conditions through the 8th or so. Pacific storms move in after this, and we are expecting February (as has seemed to be the case a lot in the last few years) to be more active across the west, more specifically the southwest US, but including Tahoe-Mammoth as well, for more frequent and significant snowfalls. SOUTHWEST US AND SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA; High pressure ridging builds in over the southwest US early February (Monday and Tuesday, 2nd/ 3rd), with mostly sunny skies but some Santa Ana wind possible (helps with snow making). Following this period, we see strong high pressure ridging all across the western US, with sunny and milder conditions through the 8th-9th or so. Pacific storms move in after this, and we are expecting February (as has seemed to be the case a lot in the last few years) to be more active across the west, more specifically the southwest US, including Mountain High and SoCal resort areas. WYOMING/ SOUTHWEST MONTANA: High pressure ridging builds in over the southwest US early February (Monday and Tuesday, 2nd/ 3rd), and a fairly strong storm blasts into the area up and over this ridge for Tuesday/ Wednesday, with moderate to heavy snowfall possible across southwest Montana and Wyoming ski areas. This storm should be cold enough to drop some significant amounts of light powder across the area. Following this storm, we see strong high pressure ridging all across the western US, with sunny and milder conditions through the 9th/ 10th. Pacific storms move in after this, and we are expecting February to be pretty active across the west, more specifically the southwest US, including southwest Montana/ Wyoming resort areas. Please check back as we update... 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.
