Decent Snowmaking Weather Ahead

Category: Weather
Short-Range

The weather for the next week will be cool and dry. High temperatures will only be in the 40's on the mountains with overnight lows in the 20's. That will make for decent conditions to pump out snow at night for the next week.

Long-Range

The weather pattern looks like it may shift starting around the 17th. That may allow for a storm to move in the weekend of the 17th. But looking further out, we may see an even better pattern for storms as we move through Thanksgiving week.

We will continue to watch for the first snowstorm of the season.  In the meantime, we will be pumping out as much snow as possible with the snow guns at night getting ready for opening day.
