Joe Nicholls: We'll see snow this morning, the gradually tapering off to snow showers this afternoon and evening. The good news is that high pressure will strengthen over the area this weekend, so should be an awesome time on the mountain! The next system will move into the area on Tuesday bringing another shot of snow and a colder air mass. We should have another nice break at the end of the week.

Joe Nicholls: A fairly nice weather day on the mountain, but the next system is moving into the Great Basin and will move into the area tonight and tomorrow. The snow levels will start out fairly high, but lower rapidly with some snow continuing tomorrow morning. High pressure will move into the area this weekend then another system will move into the area later Monday and Tuesday.

Joe Nicholls: The air mass will warm a tad this morning and that makes the snow level hovering around the base elevation, but then cool off this afternoon through tomorrow. The winds across the upper part of the resort will be increasing with the 700 mb winds forecasted to be near 40 knots around noon, 30 knots at 5 PM and less than 20 knots at 11 PM. The surface pressure gradient will also peak around noon, then gradually decrease through the evening. The bottom line, wind issues…Continue

Joe Nicholls: As the system moved into Utah, we saw a little rain, but then snow levels lowered and we saw 2 to 3 inches around the 7000 foot level and we'll end up with 6 or 7 up top. So, I'm going to follow that pretty close for us overnight. An extremely difficult forecast with clouds increasing through the day with rain and snow moving into the area this afternoon and evening. The snow level is likely to be near or just above the base level, and the air mass will be unstable enough for a…Continue

Joe Nicholls: I didn't expect much from the system yesterday, but I expected a little! The next system is moving into California this morning and will move into our area later tomorrow and tomorrow night. Could see a little rain and snow mixed at the base late afternoon and evening, but change to snow overnight. An unsettled weekend with periods of snow, but the wind direction isn't the most favorable.
TODAY...PARTLY SUNNY. A 20 PERCENT CHANCE OF SNOW IN THE MORNING. HIGHS…Continue

Joe Nicholls: An active period with a number of systems moving across the area. The first will be a combination of a cold front dropping southward through the Rockies and a weak upper level system from the Pacific Northwest. The cold front is mainly a shallow, east of the mountains , so I think amounts will be on the light side. A couple of rain and snow showers tomorrow afternoon, but again a light/ weak situation. A couple of stronger, more moist Pacific systems will move across the area…Continue

Joe Nicholls: It's looking like the winds behaved last night, but I am a little perplexed that we didn't get a little more snow. Ugh. We'll have clouds early, but the main flow is lifting a little north, so we should see more and more breaks as we go through the day. The winds should behave, as the 700 mb speeds are less than 30 knots and the surface gradient is weaker than the last couple of days. So, breezy at times, but I'm sure you can handle it. Clouds move back into the area later…Continue

Joe Nicholls: We'll see variable clouds and a couple of periods of snow or snow showers, especially this morning and again tomorrow afternoon and evening. The winds look like they behaved last night, but we'll have to deal the wind today again. The surface gradient will be gradually increasing later this morning and into the afternoon, plus the 700 mb winds stay around 30 knots from the west. I do see a decrease in the surface gradient this evening and the winds drop to 25 knots at 11 PM, so…Continue
