Inland Northwest - NE Washington - North Idaho - Northwest Montana
Inland Northwest USA, Here is your to the point forecast (Sunday Dec 17, 2017)...

We are expecting snow today with some light to moderate snowfall expected at the resorts. A stronger but warmer low pressure system moves in on Tuesday into Wednesday with potentially heavy snow for local resorts, favoring Lookout and Silver Mountain this round. Conditions should be mostly dry and cold the rest of next week but with chances for a quick cold dusting of light and fluffy snow coming in out of Canada, as we end up on the east side of the huge Pacific high pressure ridge, and are open to some upper-level weather disturbances.

In early January we see improvement for the western US as a whole, as the ridge breaks down and a trough of low pressure develops. Better and more consistent mountain snows are expected in January. CM
US Extended Snowfall Outlook
LONG RANGE OUTLOOK from snowforecast.com - Jan 18, 2018

The start of winter has been a bit delayed from what we forecast back in mid-December (by about a week), but is here, no doubt, and will be with us for the rest of January and into February most likely, with plenty of cold and snowy storms on the way...

Today and Friday we expect snow to fall across the Sierra Nevada (Tahoe-Mammoth), and Wasatch mountain ranges (Salt Lake Utah resort areas), to the tune of a foot of fresh for both Tahoe and Mammoth before its all over, and also 6 inches to a foot of snow for Colorado! Southern California will also see some snow, with some light snow expected in Big Bear mainly on Friday.

Do you want to ski or board in 6 inches to 1 foot of mostly fresh snow, while the sun shines? Go to Tahoe or Mammoth. Do you want to ski or board while its snowing, and 6 inches to 1 foot or more of snow expected? Go to Colorado or Utah for the freshest turns...

The coming weeks will be more busy and we expect frequent snowfalls across all resort areas of the western US and Western Canada. Follow your favorite forecasts at www.snowforecast.com.

LONGER RANGE: We expect a busy pattern (frequent snows) across the western US and Canada into early February.
