3 Feet So Far, Another 1-2 Feet Possible by Saturday Night

Category: Weather
Snow Report for Today: 32" in 24 hours

The two waves of precip moving through over the past 24 hours brought 32 inches of new snow.  That brings the storm total to 36 inches so far.  We had some denser snow falling yesterday and then lighter more powdery snow last night.  There are still 50+ mph wind gusts this morning and lots of digging out and avalanche control to perform.  So expect delayed lift openings.

Today through Saturday

The winds this morning are dropping but should increase again this afternoon as the final wave with this storm moves in, so not sure how long the lifts at higher elevations will be open today. Tune into app and website for real time updates. 

We have some lighter snow showers this morning but that should pick up in intensity this afternoon and into tonight. We could see 3-6" during the day today, 12-18" tonight, and 2-4" Saturday, so another 1-2 FEET possible on top of the 3 feet we have so far bringing the total to 3-5 feet. Exactly what we were expecting. The winds should drop off through the day on Saturday.

Snow Report Outlook

The Week Ahead

The sun returns Sunday but it's cold with highs in the 20's.  Monday through Wednesday it's sunny with highs into the 30's on the mountain and 40's at the base.

The next storm off the coast could push in by the end of the week.  The forecast models are struggling with the exact track of the storm, but we could see several inches of snow Friday-Saturday.

Long-Range

The active pattern could continue through mid-month.
