Howelson Hill Ski Area Discussion
Updated April 19, 2018 

-Today through Saturday expect a low pressure system to move through, weaker this time but moving slower, with snow showers expected for Colorado including Aspen. Snowfall could be heavy mainly for southwest Colorado and the San Juan Mountains if the projected path along the southern Colorado border holds true.

LONGER RANGE: Sunday through next Wednesday/ Thursday we expect warming temperatures and mostly sunny skies as high pressure ridging builds in. Late April into May we expect more unsettled weather (snow, some rain and thunderstorms) alternating with sunny skies...
US Extended Snowfall Outlook - Updated Feb 14, 2018
LONG RANGE OUTLOOK from snowforecast.com - Feb 15, 2018

Wednesday, Feb 14, 2018

LONGER RANGE: Saturday/ Sunday (17th-18th) through late next week we expect a busy pattern, with all areas of the west seeing frequent snow, some areas like Colorado should see snow every day it looks like, and with heavy snow for Colorado overall Sunday through next week, more moderate to maybe heavy for Utah and the northern Rocky Mountains (including the inland Northwest)/ Southwest Canada, and mostly light snow across Tahoe, but at least it will be snowing again. Winter is definitely coming back!

--> Late February and into March should be busy for the western US, with frequent storms for Tahoe and Utah, moving across Colorado also as the east Pacific ridge breaks down some (Feb 20th-22nd), allowing strong Pacific energy and moisture to move into the western US and southwest Canada, with abundant snowfall for all areas including those parched in recent months like in California. This should have been the pattern across the western US already, if patterns were anything near "normal" so far in 2018... Do You want to see OTHER AREAS mentioned, email me and let me know... CM
