The Springs Resort is sponsoring this upcoming storm…let’s hope for better results this week!

Forecast discussion…

A big digger trough is moving into the west coast and will be our next snowmaker from Sunday evening through Tuesday. Unlike last week, when we had to deal with bouncing snow levels, this week’s storm will be an “all snow” event. As the low and trough begin moving east tomorrow, our flow will transition into the SW and snow will start falling late Sunday night and early Monday morning. We will be in the snow window through Tuesday morning as the trough moves past us.

The rest of today… Sunny with highs in the low to mid 40’s

Sunday: Pretty much a repeat of today.

My snow forecast from Sunday night through Tuesday morning…

Valley: 2-5”

Mountains: 8-12”
