US Extended Snowfall Outlook
Updated April 10, 2017 (OLD)

TAHOE --> Across the western US later Tuesday through later Thursday (afternoon/ evening) it looks like Tahoe is the place to be for new snow, with the best snowfall Wednesday afternoon through Thursday morning, and snow levels starting near 7,000 feet or so, dropping to near 6,000 feet (below all Tahoe area resort base elevations) as strong late season low pressure moves in and through. A good foot of new snow is possible, with 1.5+ feet above 7,000 feet Wednesday afternoon through Thursday morning. Dynamics + moisture make this look like a bigger than 1 foot storm, but we will see... show up on Thursday for the freshies, with lighter snow showers continuing on a colder Thursday. The Cascades of Oregon/ Washington will also see more new snow, as will northern Idaho and northwest Montana. The rest of the west looks mostly dry. CM

LONGER RANGE...
Sunday through next Thursday looks snowy for Tahoe-Mammoth, with the storms that hit the west coast (full strength) weakening as they move inland. Snow is expected for the northern and central Rocky Mountains and northern Utah, Colorado as well. Resorts from Jackson Hole to Big Sky, Sun Valley to Whitefish, are all expected to see new snow, though many resorts will be closed by this point. The backcountry will be freshened up though. CM

In the Northern Idaho Panhandle between Montana and eastern Washington, approximately 50 miles south of Canada and 11 miles northwest of Sandpoint, Idaho, you will find Schweitzer Mountain Resort. With the addition of Stella, Idaho’s first six-pack, Schweitzer now boasts 2,500 acres of varied and exciting terrain. The area consists of two very large bowls, and within each of the two, there are two smaller bowls divided by gradually sloping ridges.
