US Extended Snowfall Outlook
Updated September 18, 2017

UNSETTLED ACROSS THE WEST --> This week we expect a few Gulf of Alaska storms to move through the western US, and drops snow to some mountain areas across Washington, Oregon (Cascades), Idaho, Montana, Wyoming (northern Rocky Mountains), California, Nevada (Tahoe), and Utah (Wasatch). By Saturday we may see some snow for Colorado also, as the trough weakens, warms up some, and shifts east. Luckily, the mountains and resorts in Colorado are so elevated, that despite the warming, snow is still possible. More details are coming. The East Coast (+ the resorts) will be sitting under a high pressure ridge, with warmer than average weather. CM

BY and AFTER THIS WEEKEND...
High pressure ridging will start to dominate the western US, for quite a late summer season warm-up. This should affect all areas, though Colorado will be dealing with some unsettled weather to start (Sat and Sun). This ridge over the west should last through 7 to 10 days, turning unsettled again (storms) after the first few days of October, but more so by the 10th or so as low pressure deepens across the west (colder, snow more likely for many areas).

Bousquet boasts an enviable location a few miles south of Pittsfield, the largest city in the Berkshires. With 21 trails almost evenly divided by ability level, two double chairs and three surface lifts, and most of the terrain available after dark, the mountain hums day and night to the sound of happy kids and adults. The kids may be laughing and learning in Bousquet’s Ski School, a fixture since 1935. The adults may be getting ready to hit the gates in a night racing league. Whatever the reason, Bousquet provides area skiers and riders a very convenient snow fix when they can’t get away for a weekend “up north.” With modern snowmaking and grooming, the scenic Berkshire Mountains all around you, and a lively small city just a few minutes away, going up north isn’t really necessary, unless you’re looking for a bit more than Bousquet’s 750 feet of vertical. But there are some nice long runs available, in particular the intermediate duo of Main Street and Russell Slope from the summit. The toughest pitches are off the top of the longer of the two doubles, while beginners have the terrain off two of the three surface lifts all to themselves. At the base you’ll find a large lodge with a big second-level deck, a lounge, rental shop, and a ski shop. If you want to make a weekend out of a visit to Bousquet, there’s more than enough to do in the region. Start with plenty of lodging and dining choices in Pittsfield and surrounding towns, antique and curio shops, galleries and theaters. Cross-country skiing and snowmobile touring are also popular.
