Short Range Forecast Discussion
This free forecast is brought to you courtesy of Aspen-Snowmass Resort
Short Range Forecast Discussion - Updated for Friday, February 27, 2015 What can we say? Snow, more snow, and even more snow is expected all the way into next week! Low pressure drops in out west, and a southwest flow aloft develops, with a 120-140mph jet stream expected overhead, oriented again out of the southwest, combined with plenty of moisture, slamming the San Juan Mountains with some of the heaviest snow of the season. Snowfall favors southwest Colorado, multiple feet, but Sunday morning through Tuesday we are looking for snow days at Aspen as well, with some heavy daily snow totals expected. Lighter snow is expected across the north, Vail Pass and east/ north, until Monday and especially Tuesday when northern origin low pressure pushes the low out west eastward, for cold air advection and a more favorable west and northwest wind flow across the mountains. Heavier snow hits Vail Pass and eastward at this time (Monday-Tuesday). On a much colder and windy Wednesday, we see low pressure exit eastward with some lingering and light snow, then sunshine.

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.
