Short Range Forecast Discussion - Updated for Saturday, April 25, 2015 This morning we see some accumulating snowfall even to 8,500 feet (Saturday morning), mostly above 9,500 feet, but the weak low (upper level weather disturbance) crosses to the south so we are not expecting much for Aspen and other northern resorts. Sunday and Monday look interesting, and we expect a significant storm for the front range and Summit/ Grand County areas, with moderate snow for Aspen and vicinity, plus southwest Colorado should see heavy snow. The front range and divide should see over 1 foot of snow. Later Monday and Tuesday clears out and warms up after low pressure exits. CM please see the detail in the long range forecast below.

7 day to 2 week+ forecast (since 1998) - 27 April to 05 May, 2015 - Pacific Northwest/ Northern California/ UTAH/ COLORADO/ northern New Mexico: Late April and into early May continues fairly busy (frequent snow) storm-wise, with more storms across the western US, including for the Pacific Northwest and northern Rocky Mountains. For Utah-Colorado-northern New Mexico, we expect a chance for snow late next week (30th April-early May) as low pressure moves into the western US, delivering snow, but mostly to areas above 9,000 feet most likely. After early May we see more stable conditions and more dominant high pressure ridging aloft, with warming and mostly sunny skies and the usual afternoon thunderstorm activity. Tahoe-Mammoth, the northern/ central Sierra Nevada Mountains and the Cascades of WA/ OR we could see frequent snowfall, some significant, later next Monday and the whole week, into early May. We are hoping for some snow pack. 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!!
