Hello Skiers & Boarders,
Cool and breezy early today with sun breaks this afternoon. Then cool and mostly sunny for Friday and early Saturday. Layer up on Friday, with morning temperatures in single digits for some locations.
Later on Saturday night and more likely on Sunday snow returns with most forecasts showing 8 to 10 inches of snow by late Sunday afternoon. The map below shows the purple and red colors which are 8 to 10 inches.

Extended Outlook

For Monday through Wednesday, we are expecting continued cold with snow levels at or below 1000 feet for much of the time. Thus any snow will be the dry and fluffy type we love. Light snow for Monday and another 8 inches for Tuesday and light snow for Wednesday.
We will update you this Sunday with the happy totals. Ski and ride on!!
