Broad Look:

With storm pushing through the North East late this week the skiing should be good for the weekend, although no new snow is on the horizon.

Lots of new snow coming for the west coast. Three storms are making their way through between now and early next week. They will be concentrated closer to the coast between Mammoth and Whistler. The temperature looks like it could be a little warm, so some of the lower elevations will be getting a little heaver snow and possibly even some rain.

Best Bests for the Coming Week

The best bets for the west would be Mammoth and Tahoe where the elevations are a little higher so the threat of rain and wet snow is a little less concerning. The first snow will be coming Friday night into Saturday, the second round will be coming Sunday, but will be a concentrated more to the north in places such as Oregon, Washington, and BC. As that is happening Sunday, the first storm will have made its way east to the Idaho, Wyoming and Montana Region, with some possible snow stretching down to Utah. The third and what looks to be the largest of the three storms will be hitting California on Monday bringing over two feet me by Tuesday morning.

Week in Review

The East coast has had some consistent snow the past week creating high weekly snow totals of over 4 feet in Jay Peak, Sugarloaf and Shawnee Peak.

In a wider scope, Alyeska broke three feet in three days in the middle of this week!
