Short Range Forecast Discussion - Updated for Friday, May 29, 2015
Today we see low pressure to the north but moving eastward, for less moisture across the area, but still enough instability for scattered coverage of thunderstorms (about 30% coverage) this afternoon. Saturday and Sunday we expect a warming and drying trend as high pressure ridging aloft builds in pretty strong across the central Rocky Mountains. It will be very spring-like for a change. More low pressure approaches from the northwest US and sits across that area next Monday through Wednesday, for mostly dry conditions under a southwest wind flow aloft across Colorado. Temperatures will still be warm. We see another increase in mainly afternoon thunderstorms and showers again late next week, with temperatures dropping a bit, as low pressure across the northwest US moves across mainly to the north.

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.

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

Monarch Mountain...all natural snow...all natural setting...all about having fun! Come see why so many people rave about what Monarch has to offer. Short lift lines, inexpensive restaurants, friendly staff on and off the mountain and no hassles of traffic to and from the ski area. Winter is on the way and we have made some great changes to add to Monarch's overall experience. We’ve widened some trails and added an additional 130 acres of awesome backcountry (extreme) skiing in Mirkwood Basin. This is an exciting change that we have been working on for quite some time and we’ve now opened the gates to our die-hard skiers/riders who are looking for new, challenging terrain. Did you say powder? We've got plenty of it here at Monarch because we still only use Mother Nature’s snow for our guests to ski and ride on. On a good snow day you just can't beat the all natural powder here. Monarch is also known to have some of the best tree skiing in the state, so be sure to check it out before the locals ski off the fresh stuff!!
