US Extended Snowfall Outlook
After Spring... Winter She Arrives, Next Week! ...and through the rest of March, into April for the western US.

High pressure ridging dominates the western US this weekend, except for the Pacific Northwest...

By next Tuesday and Wednedsay, Tahoe is getting hit with moderate to heavy snow, and this snowmaking low pressure moves across Utah and Colorado, hitting the northern Rocky Mountains also, though the bulk of energy targets the Pacific, and then through Utah/ Colorado. Places like Sun Valley and Jackson Hole will still see some nice fresh snow... By mid next week, all areas of the west are being affected by snow, with some initial snow level issues... Aspen-Snowmass, looking better with some new snow (please check our detailed Aspen-Snowmass forecasts)... Southern California and northern Arizona will see lighter snow...

By next Friday and that weekend, Tahoe and Mammoth are getting slammed with some big multi-foot snowfalls and we are not expecting much problem with snow levels, so we should see almost all snow to 6,000 feet. The rest of the west is looking colder by then, and some more significant snowfalls are expected across Utah and Colorado also, to the northern Rocky Mountains (incl. Jackson Hole, Sun Valley), Aspen-Snowmass, and Telluride. Some of these systems will take a more southerly track as more closed off systems, affecting places like Taos Ski Valley and west to the Arizona Snowbowl near Flagstaff (did you know that their base elevation is above 9,000 feet?!).

The rest of March looks busy with frequent snowfalls, and this pattern may hold into early April, capping off an amazing snow season for many! CM Be sure to stay tuned to our longer range forecasts that are now as they have been since 1998, Free!

Take off on the Red Chair to the top of our mountain where you can drop off the mountian in 3 directions! Slide off the back to the Moon Star Mining Camp with the whole family for a lovely trip through the aspens; head down the mountain's front for a long and winding cruise back to the base of the lift; or jump off the side into a maze of bumps and runs that earn their diamonds. And don't discover the sunny west side of the mountain for the short but oh so sweet intermediate to advanced runs off the silver chair. This mountain accomodates skiers of all levels with easy to catch chair lifts and a friendly family atmosphere. Tube with the kids at the end of the day for even more family fun. Red River Ski Area and the town of Red River are almost one in the same. The lifts are right off Main Street within walking distance of 80 % of the village's 6,000 rooms. The variety shops and stores downtown is echoed my the many differnt runs at the ski area. And the good time, Wild West, two-steppin' feel of this old mining community is just the same whether enjoying the slopes or Main Street. Thre are programs custom made for groups and families, lots of ways to save and a relaxed feeling about the whole place that welcomes skiers and boarders both on the slope and off.
