A Little Natural, A Little Manmade...

We have had some snow from the last few storms with over a foot this week up top, and cold air in between storms for some snowmaking.  That is getting Squaw closer to being able to open as planned next Friday.

Take a look on the cams page and you can see the 2 inches of fresh snow that fell overnight up top.

Scattered showers around today with snow levels bouncing between 7000-8000 feet. Highs in the 40's at the base and 30's on the mountain. Scattered showers are possible again Friday with snow levels around 7000 feet and similar temperatures as today.  We could see an additional inch or two up top today into tomorrow.

For the weekend we are expecting sunny skies with highs in the 40's on the mountain and around 50 at the base.  We may have enough dry air and cold temps for snowmaking at night.

The next storm moves through on Monday. Again, we are on the bottom edge of this storm so it looks like the precipitation amounts will be light. Snow levels starting around 8000 feet and falling to the base by Monday night as the storm pulls away. We could see a few inches of snow on the mountain from this storm above 7000 feet.

There is another storm that may bring snow to the mountains for next Wed-Thu. We are watching that one closely.

After that we may have a drier pattern move in for about a week with the next storms possibly holding off until Thanksgiving or just after.
