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
Utah
Forecast discussion for northern Utah/ Wasatch Mountains

Updated 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 Expanded Night Skiing Located on the top of Big Cottonwood Canyon in the Wasatch Mountains of Utah is Brighton Ski Resort. Brighton, a tradition since 1936, has recently made giant leaps forward with new night skiing terrain and a new $2.2 million day lodge. The new Brighton Center houses expanded retail and rental space, along with lots of new restrooms and lockers. Brighton is also once again expanding its night skiing terrain, adding three more trails for a total of 18 lighted trails and 200 acres of night skiing or snowboarding. You will find learn-to-ski programs, free skiing for kids under 10, two high-speed express quads and tremendous snow. Brighton is located southeast of downtown Salt Lake City. Convenient UTA bus shuttle services the area from any number of locations in the Salt Lake area. By car, it's a 25 minute drive from the city center and 30 miles from the airport.
