Where to be this weekend? April 12th-14th
Posted April 10, 2019 at 10:23am PST

We have a winner for our Aspen-Snowmass lift ticket giveaway on INSTAGRAM, check it out... <a href="http://www.instagram.com/predicting_sickdays/">http://www.instagram.com/predicting_sickdays/</a>

Colorado, and Sun Valley to Big Sky are the places to be this weekend... heres why:

#1 - A strong and cold storm is moving through Colorado and out onto the plains on Thursday, with moderate to heavy snow totals all across western Colorado, a storm total 1 to 2 feet for all areas! Northern resorts across Summit and Grand Counties will be favored under a northwest flow across the mountains.

#2 Resorts in the northern Rockies (Sun Valley through Big Sky look good) will see snow, mostly light to moderate, now through the weekend, for some fun fresh snow all weekend.

If you like sunshine plus deep fresh snow, go to Colorado, anywhere, northern resorts favored, but Aspen is looking at near a foot to 1.5 feet overall by Friday as the storm clears out... If you like the snow to be falling while on the slopes, head to the northern Rocky Mountains for best fresh coverage!

<strong>Now through the weekend
