As a follow up on the last weather outlook for the southern Canadian Rocky Mountains and Northwest US including the areas of Revelstoke Mountain Resort and Kingfisher Heli in British Columbia (on track, see original story from Friday the 20th, here: ), and Bogus Basin in southern Idaho, I am updating this story here.
It is looking like Thursday and Friday 3,000 to 5,000 foot snow levels for top to bottom snowfall across Kingfisher Heli's area of operation, and just above base elevations at Revelstoke, Thursday and Friday. 3cm to 6cm (1-ish to 2+ inches) of snowfall are expected just above 3,000 feet, with 30+cm (a foot) of snow to 7,000 and 8,000 feet (just above 2,100m).
An unusually cold and southward-traveling low pressure system from the Gulf of Alaska drops into the Canadian Rocky Mountains including Revelstoke Mountain Resort and Kingfisher Heli this Thursday and Friday, with low pressure then focusing on the Northwest US Saturday through Monday. The whole system should exit on Tuesday. I expect that Bogus Basin will see a dusting to maybe 1" of snow Sunday and Monday, and Monday into Tuesday we could see 2 to 4" of snow from top to bottom at Bogus Basin! Tahoe in California will also see some light snow, northern lake areas favored. Please see the charts below that I agree with:
