Forecast update for the weekend:

An Alberta clipper is heading our way, but not before another beautiful day on the slopes Friday. With night time lows well below freezing snowmaking is going to be going on early Friday morning. Then under mostly sunny skies early highs should get into the lower 40’s. Then late Friday high clouds stream in ahead of the clipper systems. Friday night snow will develop above 3500’ with a snow rain mix at lower elevations. Snow will mix with rain during the early part of Saturday, before it switches to all snow by late afternoon. Snow showers will continue Saturday night and into Sunday morning. 2-3” by Sunday is possible by late Sunday mostly above 4000’.

Next week the active pattern continues with storm systems coming down in the Northwest flow. Since its March you have to watch the amount of cold air closely, but things looks cold enough for 2 to 3 quick moving snow systems next week. By far the biggest one could be towards the end of the week as another gulf low forms. Can’t say for sure what the totals will be, but this is a nice pattern for snow. Especially in the month of March.

I won’t update my forecast until Monday because I’ll be hitting the slopes this weekend up at Winterplace. So if your up that way look for the 6’3” guy with a ivory and orange North Face jacket and Salomon Snowblades on and say hello.

Good skiing!
