Good morning,

It’s foggy on the mountain this morning, which isn’t my favorite ski weather, but I’ll still hit the slopes today, just because it’s Friday.

We’ll see clouds and fog today with a chance of sunbreaks midday before snow starts falling around 4pm. The snow level will be around 3000’ early, rising to 4500’ by 1pm. Winds will be SW 15-20 early, rising to SW 25-30 by 1pm, going to SW 35-45 by 7pm. Snowfall will be moderate 7pm today through 7am tomorrow, with a total of .5-.75” water value for 5-7” of new snow.

The snow level tomorrow morning will be around 2000’, falling to 1500’ by 10am. Snowfall will decrease as the morning goes on, becoming light after 7am and ending by 4pm. Winds will be W 25-30 early, fading to SW 15-20 by 1pm, becoming light by evening. Total snowfall after 4am will be .25”-.5”, most likely at the lower end, for 3-4” of new snow.

Sunday looks dry in one model with a couple inches of snow falling in another model. Either way, winds will be light and the snow level will be around 500-1000’. Monday looks mostly dry as well, with possible sun in the morning and the free air freezing level at or below 1000’. Winds will start off light on Monday, going to NW 15-20 by 7pm. Next chance for significant snowfall is the end of next week.

Have an awesome day.
