US Extended Snowfall Outlook
Updated September 18, 2017

UNSETTLED ACROSS THE WEST --> This week we expect a few Gulf of Alaska storms to move through the western US, and drops snow to some mountain areas across Washington, Oregon (Cascades), Idaho, Montana, Wyoming (northern Rocky Mountains), California, Nevada (Tahoe), and Utah (Wasatch). By Saturday we may see some snow for Colorado also, as the trough weakens, warms up some, and shifts east. Luckily, the mountains and resorts in Colorado are so elevated, that despite the warming, snow is still possible. More details are coming. The East Coast (+ the resorts) will be sitting under a high pressure ridge, with warmer than average weather. CM

BY and AFTER THIS WEEKEND...
High pressure ridging will start to dominate the western US, for quite a late summer season warm-up. This should affect all areas, though Colorado will be dealing with some unsettled weather to start (Sat and Sun). This ridge over the west should last through 7 to 10 days, turning unsettled again (storms) after the first few days of October, but more so by the 10th or so as low pressure deepens across the west (colder, snow more likely for many areas).

Forecast discussion for northern Utah/ Wasatch Mountains

Updated (OLD) for Friday, March 17, 2017, at 12:30pm...
Today and Saturday look warm, very spring-like in temperature and likely snow conditions... High pressure ridging causes this, with mostly sunny skies as this pattern dominates the western US (its in the 90's to near 100 across the southwest deserts!).
Sunday and Monday look continued warm, with increased and gusty winds due to a storm passing by to the north. The high pressure ridge weakens due to this. Hang in there, because snow is on the way my friends...
On a warm and spring-like, mostly sunny (but with increasing winds) Tuesday, we expect low pressure to be moving into California, and this is expected to move through Utah by Tuesday night through Thursday, with mostly moderate snowfall across northern Utah including Powder Mountain. Snow levels will be an issue to start, running 8,500 feet or so Tuesday night and Wednesday (southwest flow), for some wet snow even to Alta/ Snowbird/ Brighton base elevations to start. Later Wednesday and Thursday look colder, and snow levels drop nicely, with a west/ northwest flow of winds across the mountains then, but we will have to watch. This kicks off potential almost daily snowfalls through the rest of March and into April, and some big storms also. Its not over yet! CM

LONGER RANGE...
We will be seeing some accumulating snow on an almost daily basis, moderate to heavy at times through the rest of March and into early April (on track). CM

Utah Best Maintained Slopes Around Beaver Mountain Ski Area is located in northern Utah, and has been family owned and operated since 1939. If you have heard boasts about the best maintained slopes around, come and see for yourself. The northeast exposure is ideal for morning sun. With avalanche-free conditions and very little wind, Beaver Mountain is an all-around great place to ski. Beginners will want to steer towards the Little Beaver and Gentle Ben runs. Intermediates will enjoy the usually machine-packed Ridge, Stump and D-Street trails. Harry's Hollow is designated as the “racers” run and for hot doggers. Experts will want to checkout Robison's Run, Wipe Out, Old Thunder and Canyon View, to name a few. Lue's Run is a newly cleared run, named after Luella Seeholzer, one of the mountains founders. If you like fall-line skiing, this one is for you. It is long, steep and littered with bumps. Snowboarders are allowed on the mountain, but are restricted from a few of the runs. PSIA-certified instructors teach skiers of all ages and ability levels. The Snoopy Ski School, for children 5 to 8, is an all-day class (except lunch) and runs five weeks on Saturdays or Sundays and during the week of the Christmas holiday. Services at Beaver Mountain include an A-frame lodge, sun deck, cafeteria, boot room, lockers, ski shop and rentals. Beaver Mountain is located 27 miles east of Logan, Utah, in the Wasatch-Cache National Forest.
