Forecast discussion for Aspen-Snowmass and Western Colorado

Updated for Monday, March 27, 2017, at 2:05am...
Today through Wednesday we see low pressure move into the area, with mostly light snow and high snow levels to start again, near/ above 9,000 feet, and dropping tonight, rising again Tuesday afternoon (near 9,000 feet, so, some rain in Aspen and other areas below 9,000 feet) as the low pressure system moves mainly across southern Colorado and northern New Mexico. Winds become more out of the north on Tuesday and Wednesday. Some moderate to heavy snow is expected mainly above 9,000 feet, and mainly on Tuesday. On Wednesday we see low pressure moving eastward, with an unsettled northwest wind flow. Thursday looks like a break, then more low pressure moves in on Friday and Saturday with similar snow totals possible. CM

LONGER RANGE...
More snow is expected into early April (on track, details coming). CM

What is the weak La Nina/ ENSO Neutral SST pattern going to bring this winter of 2016-2017? We put together a comparison to some past possibly analogous years, here: Here is some guidance, using previous similar pattern years. This guidance is for Aspen, near base elevations (mid and upper mountain get 2 to 3 times as much snow).CM

Keystone is home to three magnificent mountain playgrounds—Dercum Mountain, North Peak, and The Outback. There’s something special for every skier and rider of any level at each mountain. There are more than 3,000 vertical feet and over 3,000 acres of bumps and bowls, glades and steeps, groomers and rollers to be experienced.
