Tuesday night was dry, and now on Wednesday morning, snow just began to fall steadily at around 7 am.
From Wednesday morning through Wednesday last chair, expect moderate to intense snowfall with 3-6+ inches of accumulation. There should be more powder on the slopes throughout the day. Temperatures will start warm, with thicker, denser snow, then should cool with fluffier snow by afternoon.
On Wednesday night, a favorable wind from the northwest should keep snow showers going and we will likely pick up another 2-4 inches. This means that you’ll find even softer and deeper conditions on Thursday morning - go get the pow!
On Thursday there will be a break in the accumulating snow during most of the day.
From Thursday night through Friday evening, a second storm will clip northern Colorado with an additional 5-10 inches of snow. When you look at the snow report on Friday morning, realize that there will be more snow falling throughout the day on Friday and conditions will be deeper when you get out on the hill to ski
Again, your best chance to ski fresh powder will be on Wednesday afternoon, first chair on Thursday, and most of the day on Friday, with total accumulations from Wednesday through Friday reaching into the double-digits.
There could still be a bit of powder on Saturday morning, then the rest of the weekend should be dry. Light snow is possible at times next week, then a more significant storm will likely arrive starting on or around January 19th or 20th.
