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).

“Wachusett” is the Algonquin Indian word for “The Great Hill.” Geologically speaking, Wachusett is a monadnock, the Indian word for a mountain that stands alone. The first ski trails on the mountain were cut by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the late 1930’s (Pine Hill Trail 1934; Balance Rock Trail 1937) and there are anecdotal reports of people in the 1940s skiing the power line down the side of the mountain. Our first lifts were the Oxbow T-bar in 1960 and the West T-bar in 1962 which was, at the time, the longest T-bar in New England at 3,800 feet. Wachusett is the highest mountain in Massachusetts east of the Connecticut River and stands some 2,006 feet above sea level at its peak. Our panoramic summit views include sights of Boston to the east. Wachusett Mountain has a long history of tourism. The first hotel was constructed on the summit in 1882. A new summit hotel was constructed in 1907 and continued operations until it was destroyed by fire in 1970. More than 600,000 people visit the mountain year round with at least half of that number visiting the Wachusett Mountain State Reservation in summer and fall.
