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

Few people think of snow and skiing when they think of Tucson. Cactus, desert, and diamondbacks more readily come to mind. The Santa Catalina Ranger District, however, is home to the southernmost ski area in the United States, which is perched near the 9,157-foot summit of Mt. Lemmon. Ski runs are usually open from mid-December to early April, depending on winter weather and snowfall. Located just an hour's drive from the sun drenched resorts of Tucson, area visitors can go golfing, swimming and downhill skiing in the same day. Mt. Lemmon Ski Valley offers ski equipment rentals, instruction, the Iron Door Restaurant, a snack bar, and gift shop. Overnight accomodations are available in the nearby village of Summerhaven. The chair lift is in operation all year round, taking visitors to a high overlook from which they can enjoy views of the Santa Catalinas, the city of Tucson, the San Pedro Valley, the Reef of Rocks, and the distant mountains near Globe and Phoenix. These scenic views, combined with the many trails and overlooks in the area, and the Iron Door Restaurant make this a popular place to visit in any season.
