Where to be for the best snow this weekend! (8th - 10th of March)
Here is our "top picks" snow forecast for this weekend...

For those who want the short and sweet right up front, Utah and Colorado will be the places to be this weekend! Strong northern storms will drop south into the western US with strong dynamics, and these systems will draw on some at times subtropical moisture, which will?mostly affect the southwest US, including to the greatest extent, Utah and even more so, Colorado....More
Where to be for the best snow this weekend! (22-24th Feb)
Here is our "top picks" snow forecast for this weekend...

Hands-down,?Arizona will get the lions share of snow?before this weekend, with Thursday and Friday producing possibly 2 feet of new snow for the Arizona Snowbowl near Flagstaff, and that is on top of already?great snowfall this season! This is due to a VERY cold storm system dropping in out of the north (528-534dm 500-1kmb thickness this far south is unusual), a bit limited on moisture, but pulling from the Pacific offshore of southern California as it sweeps through....More
REST OF FEBRUARY:?High pressure ridging aloft builds in across the Gulf of Alaska, and Alaska, which is the usual source region for our more "juicy" storms that drop powder+ days...
Instead, we expect?storms to drop in fairly frequently from out of the north, a drier region over land, for mostly moisture starved low pressure systems clipping most of western Canada with 2.5 (1 inch) to 7.5cm (3 inches) snowfalls, some to 15cm (6 inches of snow)....More
Where to be for the best snow this weekend! (8-10th Feb)

Here is our early forecast for this weekend...

Hands-down, Tahoe ? Mammoth?will be?the winner in terms of snow all through this weekend, with NO snow level issues, in fact dry and cold powder is what we mostly expect, especially on Sunday...

We are expecting two storms to move through, the first of which?will be the weaker of the two, and will also be faster moving one, mainly a wave out ahead of the main storm to hit Saturday and Sunday.

It looks like the snow will begin flying again mainly Friday afternoon through overnight, with 6 to 10 inches of fresh snow?forecast?to be on the ground for the Saturday morning snow?report, for favored resorts across Northern Tahoe like Sugar Bowl and Squaw-Alpine, and 3 to 6 inches of snow for other areas.

Friday, First storm, GFS Snow Accumulation by Saturday 4am based on a 1:10 water to snow ratio, whereas the water to snow ratio will be closer to 1:15 (more snow than shown on this map, is what is expected by the Saturday morning snow report)...

A stronger?and larger scale, slower moving, and offshore positioning storm system starts dropping in from out of the north, located offshore, looking stronger/ colder, more dynamic, and dropping heavy snow Saturday and Sunday, basically?ALL weekend long! We expect to see? 10? to?18 inches of snow each?day all across Tahoe-Mammoth, for a total of 2 (south Tahoe, Mammoth) to 3+ (north Tahoe) feet of extra snow expected this weekend! Saturday and Sunday!

Friday through Sunday,?2 storms, GFS Snow Accumulation by Sunday 4pm (close of business for most resorts on Sunday) based on a 1:10 water to snow ratio, whereas the water to snow ratio will be closer to 1:15 and even 1:20 (possibly MUCH more snow than shown on this map, is what is expected by the Sunday?afternoon at 4pm! The snow will continue through Monday morning, so show up Monday if you like less crowds, DEEP and Fresh snow, and sunshine! Cold-smoke, No-joke powder! (on top of deep bases!)

Combined with the snow that has already fallen across Tahoe-Mammoth in recent weeks, conditions will be?amazing this weekend! In fact, we are expecting no snow level issues whatsoever, and even a drier/ colder?cold-smoke powder, especially on Sunday....More
