Vail Resorts GP Nordic Discussion
Western Colorado Weather Discussion - Jan 15, 2018

Mostly sunny skies continue across the region as upper-level high pressure ridging continues over Colorado and the west.

Expect mostly sunny skies and a warming trend through mid week under that same ridge...

The big change we have been forecasting (since mid December) is moving in , slightly delayed (by about a week) but on the way for late next week, as the first in a series of strong Pacific winter storms moves in, as a large scale trough of low pressure sets up across the western US. The location of this trough will determine who benefits most from this change-over, but either way we are looking at more snow for all resorts across the western US. More and frequent storms are expected to move through for the rest of January as large scale low pressure remains entrenched across the western US.

LONGER RANGE: Expect winter and frequent snows to continue right into February. CM
US Extended Snowfall Outlook
LONG RANGE OUTLOOK from snowforecast.com - Jan 08, 2018

On Tuesday we expect a closed low pressure system to move through southern California mainly, with the northern portion hitting Tahoe and Mammoth. We are forecasting just under powder day totals for some, to over 1 foot of snow, possibly to 1 foot for Big Bear resort areas.

On Wednesday the closed low moves by mainly to the south of Colorado, across New Mexico, with light snow and lower snow levels for Colorado as a northern counterpart moves in as well to kick this low eastward. Decent snow totals are expected, heavier to the south for northern New Mexico including Taos Ski Valley, where  good dump of snow is expected.

On Thursday we expect clearing skies as low pressure exits and a ridge of high pressure builds in again, for mostly sunny skies and cold temperatures.

Thursday through Saturday we expect a drier system to move through the northern to central Rocky Mountains, with colder air and a light snowfall likely for areas of northern Idaho and Western Wyoming to Aspen and western Colorado as an "Alberta Clipper" type of system brushes the area.

LONGER RANGE: The big change coming is looking like just after the 15th with a large scale trough of low pressure setting up across the western US. The location of this trough will determine who benefits most from this change-over, but either way we are looking at more snow for all resorts across the western US. It is looking like the 16th-18th for the change-over to colder and frequently snowy.
