Powder, sun the powder

Hello skiers,

I am not thrilled about Monday with the snow levels, but the rest of the week has something for everybody.

A windy and wet atmospheric river (AR) storm is moving through the region Monday. The snow levels are problematic on Monday near 4,500 ft. That means wet snow or rain on the lower slopes, with deep snow on the upper slopes (6-12 plus). There will be high winds at times. The AR will weaken late Monday, to be followed by a cooler storm with abundant new snowfall into Tuesday. The snow level will drop to 1,500 ft with 5-10 new and more snowfall through the day on Tuesday. That makes Tuesday a full-on POWDER DAY. That is my pick.

But I also like Wednesday with partly sunny skies and a break in the action and fantastic leftovers. By Thursday and Friday, a new storm moves in with plentiful new snowfall. Both days have great powder potential with lots of new snow and a 2,000ft snow level providing wonderful quality.

We will see clearing for the weekend, with a ridge of high pressure moving into the NW.

This week, every day but Monday has its advantages - ya gotta pick one powder day or the day with some sun mid-week.
