Howelson Hill Ski Area Discussion
Updated Sunday May 26, 2019 at 1:00am Mountain Time 

YESTERDAY: "we expect a break from recent rain and snow, unseasonable cold, with beautiful sunshine, mostly blue skies, warmer temperatures, and afternoon breeziness"

Today we expect a cooler day and afternoon thunderstorms, showers, as another unseasonably strong low-pressure system moves through California (rain and Sierra Nevada snow there), with a southwest flow across Colorado, driving some moisture and instability into the area for the afternoon thunderstorms we expect.

Monday and Tuesday more unseasonably cold (lower than usual snow levels) low-pressure moves in, with more unusual low snow levels and snow in Aspen (snow in town), and significant snow for the resorts that are still open, again. CM

LONG RANGE FORECAST:  A warm up is expected after the early week snow and rain, for mid to late next week. Early June may show a warm up as well, but storms are not out of the picture yet. CM
Where to be this weekend? April 12th-14th
Posted April 10, 2019 at 10:23am PST

We have a winner for our Aspen-Snowmass lift ticket giveaway on INSTAGRAM, check it out... <a href="http://www.instagram.com/predicting_sickdays/">http://www.instagram.com/predicting_sickdays/</a>

Colorado, and Sun Valley to Big Sky are the places to be this weekend... heres why:

#1 - A strong and cold storm is moving through Colorado and out onto the plains on Thursday, with moderate to heavy snow totals all across western Colorado, a storm total 1 to 2 feet for all areas! Northern resorts across Summit and Grand Counties will be favored under a northwest flow across the mountains.

#2 Resorts in the northern Rockies (Sun Valley through Big Sky look good) will see snow, mostly light to moderate, now through the weekend, for some fun fresh snow all weekend.

If you like sunshine plus deep fresh snow, go to Colorado, anywhere, northern resorts favored, but Aspen is looking at near a foot to 1.5 feet overall by Friday as the storm clears out... If you like the snow to be falling while on the slopes, head to the northern Rocky Mountains for best fresh coverage!

<strong>Now through the weekend
