US Extended Snowfall Outlook
Updated April 10, 2017

TAHOE --> Across the western US later Tuesday through later Thursday (afternoon/ evening) it looks like Tahoe is the place to be for new snow, with the best snowfall Wednesday afternoon through Thursday morning, and snow levels starting near 7,000 feet or so, dropping to near 6,000 feet (below all Tahoe area resort base elevations) as strong late season low pressure moves in and through. A good foot of new snow is possible, with 1.5+ feet above 7,000 feet Wednesday afternoon through Thursday morning. Dynamics + moisture make this look like a bigger than 1 foot storm, but we will see... show up on Thursday for the freshies, with lighter snow showers continuing on a colder Thursday. The Cascades of Oregon/ Washington will also see more new snow, as will northern Idaho and northwest Montana. The rest of the west looks mostly dry. CM

LONGER RANGE...
Sunday through next Thursday looks snowy for Tahoe-Mammoth, with the storms that hit the west coast (full strength) weakening as they move inland. Snow is expected for the northern and central Rocky Mountains and northern Utah, Colorado as well. Resorts from Jackson Hole to Big Sky, Sun Valley to Whitefish, are all expected to see new snow, though many resorts will be closed by this point. The backcountry will be freshened up though. CM
Forecast discussion for Aspen-Snowmass and Western Colorado

Updated for Tuesday, April 25, 2017, at 4:47am...
Today and Wednesday we see snow across the area and snow levels low enough for snow in Aspen (town), as one system moves through today, a bit moisture starved, then a stronger system with more potential snow within it moves through on Wednesday. Accumulations are expected all across Colorado. Thursday through Saturday we see another period of unsettled, and this time even colder weather coming, with snow accumulations expected, possibly heavy to 8,000 feet (where were you weeks ago Ma Nature?).CM

LONGER RANGE...
Frequent Pacific storms move in well into May with colder and unsettled conditions, plus possible snow in Aspen several times (more). There will possibly be some big spring snow storms (on track). 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

Vail Ski Resort was founded in 1962 and since then the community and the ski area have matured into a destination resort for people around the globe. Evolving from a logging community prior to its discovery by the late 10th Mountain Division soldier and pioneer Pete Seibert and his friend, Earl Eaton, Vail now typifies a Tyrolean village with signature landmarks such as the Covered Bridge and the Clock Tower. Creative storefronts including restaurants, bars and boutiques line Bridge Street (framed by the Covered Bridge to the north) in Vail Village. The Town of Vail is home to numerous outdoor parks, water features, statues, artwork and more. As the largest single mountain ski resort in North America with 5,289 acres Vail offers distinctly different terrain and vistas spread 7 miles across the front side, the legendary Back Bowls and Blue Sky Basin. Magnificent backdrops, including the 14,000-foot Mount of the Holy Cross and the Gore, Sawatch mountain ranges surround the resort. Locals are known for their legendary tales and are open to sharing insider's tips on the best ways to ski and ride the mountain. The welcoming community takes everything in stride and is proud to share its amenities.
