Blizzard Conditions on the Way Tonight and Saturday!


Stay up to date by getting notified of new posts!

All the talk this morning is about the weather, particularly about the weather TOMORROW. Brad Panovich, our resident meteorologist, describes Saturday’s prospects in one word – BLIZZARD!

Brad’s quote this morning is, “This Storm will be nasty due to the wind! There will be snow but the wind is what we need to play up here with Blizzard like conditions!”

We all know that we need the cold; we’d LOVE the snow, but the winds we could do without! However, Old Man Winter isn’t expected to play nice with this dose of cold.  He’s bringing 30-40mph winds with him and some gusts are expected to register 60mph.  IF that is the case, we’ll more than likely see a few lifts close down.  Those are usually temporary, so don’t fret too much.

“Enjoy” the Blizzard…stay off the roads Saturday and then ski and ride some great conditions Sunday and Monday.  If you’re going to brave the conditions on Saturday – dress warm!

Here’s the details:

Friday…Mostly cloudy. A chance of rain showers this morning…Then rain showers and thunderstorms this afternoon. Some thunderstorms May be severe this afternoon. Breezy with highs in the mid 50s. South winds 15 to 20 mph. Gusts up to 35 mph this afternoon. Overnight low should allow for snowmaking in some or most areas at 31°

Saturday…Snow showers likely. Total accumulation of 2 to 4 inches possible. Very windy. Much cooler with highs around 30°. Northwest winds 30 to 40 mph. Gusts up to 60 mph possible in the afternoon. Chance of snow 70 percent. Overnight low near 20°

Sunday…Mostly sunny and breezy. Highs around 40s. North winds 10 to 20 mph. Gusts up to 35 mph in the morning. Sunday night should see more snowmaking at 27°

Monday…Partly cloudy. Highs in the upper 40s and lows in the 35° range

Tuesday…Mostly cloudy with a 50 percent chance of rain showers. Highs in the upper 40s to near 50°. Lows in the mid 30s.

Until Next Time!
