Chances for Snow Today and a Decent Weekend

Things are looking better weather-wise, with light snow today above 4000′ and mayb a light snow mix below that for Thursday.  Look at your thermometer right now, because that may be the high for the day as a system moves in that will either keep the temps steady or perhaps drop them a bit. Highs today should be around 33° and drop to near 22°. Our bet is that we’ll see just mostly cloudy skies today, with most of the precip falling after 4pm or so…but that could change depending on how quickly the system gets here.  Higher elevations could see 1-3" of snow and perhaps a dusting elsewhere of wet snow.

Friday looks nice with partly cloudy skies and 40° for a high, 32° for a low.  Should be a GREAT ski day!

Saturday is looking like about the same temps but a 40% chance of light rain but that should end around mid-day…so it will still be a decent day of skiing.

Sunday is another mild, sunny day with highs slightly warmer (into the mid to upper 40s) – no Snowmaking on Sunday.

We seem to be stuck in a milder pattern but snow conditions are still quite nice with soft snow!
