Milder Temps make way for ANOTHER Winter Storm This Weekend!

It looks like another WINTER STORM is headed for our are late this weekend. Temperatures will mellow out a little bit through the rest of the week, making for some pretty AMAZING ski weather for early in the season.

We’ve heard from Brad Panovich this morning and you’ll have to check out the video forecast for today for all of the details. Suffice to say that he’s as excited as the rest of us over all this snow that we’ve seen in the past five or six days. He’s also talking about "THE NEXT MAJOR SNOW STORM" that should be hitting Sunday night and last into next week bringing MORE significant snowfall. Additionally we’re looking at great snowmaking temps with the exception of perhaps a day or so over the next week so resorts will continue to build base depths.

Here’s what we’re looking at for the next few days…
