Don’t let the early week fool you.

I think Brad Panovich said it nicely in his latest skier’s forecast. After a beautiful day on Monday, we move into the yuck factor for a few days with rain and warmth across the region.

However, the end of the week and the weekend are looking fantastic.

Conditions on the slopes will still be really good the next couple of days despite the underdeveloped snow falling. There is plenty of snow on the slopes to play on.

There should be windows– especially today – for some dry runs, but with the proper gear, it will still be a lot of fun even in the rain.

As far as the weekend, check out Brad’s forecast that he shared overnight.

You can help but get giddy when you look at that forecast.
