US Extended Snowfall Outlook
After Spring... Winter She Arrives, Next Week! ...and through the rest of March, into April for the western US.

High pressure ridging dominates the western US this weekend, except for the Pacific Northwest...

By next Tuesday and Wednedsay, Tahoe is getting hit with moderate to heavy snow, and this snowmaking low pressure moves across Utah and Colorado, hitting the northern Rocky Mountains also, though the bulk of energy targets the Pacific, and then through Utah/ Colorado. Places like Sun Valley and Jackson Hole will still see some nice fresh snow... By mid next week, all areas of the west are being affected by snow, with some initial snow level issues... Aspen-Snowmass, looking better with some new snow (please check our detailed Aspen-Snowmass forecasts)... Southern California and northern Arizona will see lighter snow...

By next Friday and that weekend, Tahoe and Mammoth are getting slammed with some big multi-foot snowfalls and we are not expecting much problem with snow levels, so we should see almost all snow to 6,000 feet. The rest of the west is looking colder by then, and some more significant snowfalls are expected across Utah and Colorado also, to the northern Rocky Mountains (incl. Jackson Hole, Sun Valley), Aspen-Snowmass, and Telluride. Some of these systems will take a more southerly track as more closed off systems, affecting places like Taos Ski Valley and west to the Arizona Snowbowl near Flagstaff (did you know that their base elevation is above 9,000 feet?!).

The rest of March looks busy with frequent snowfalls, and this pattern may hold into early April, capping off an amazing snow season for many! CM Be sure to stay tuned to our longer range forecasts that are now as they have been since 1998, Free!

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.
