Howelson Hill Ski Area Discussion
Updated Monday May 20, 2019 at 4:20am Mountain Time 

YESTERDAY: "we start out chilly with plenty of sunshine, then a stronger low pressure system moves in later this morning and through overnight, with a warmer day, and isolated afternoon thunderstorms"

Unseasonably strong low pressure moves in today, with snow in Aspen and even down to 7,000 feet tonight as cold air moves in. Snow totals over 1/2 foot fall above 9,000 feet in Aspen-Snowmass and southwest facing slopes, a few inches to 1/2 foot of snow for Summit and Grand County areas).

Tuesday through Thursday we expect unseasonably cold low pressure to remain across the area, with some snow in Aspen again on Tuesday, snow levels near 7,000 feet and to 9,000 feet (town of Aspen elevation is 8,000 feet), as dynamics look pretty strong and moisture plentiful.

Friday through Sunday we expect a break, with more sunshine, milder temperatures, and afternoon thunderstorms and showers. CM

LONG RANGE FORECAST: Early and mid next week look milder with  more sunshine and the usual spring afternoon thunderstorms. More storms are coming next weekend, unseasonably cold, with more unusual low snow levels. Early June may show a warm up. CM
Where to be this weekend? April 12th-14th
Posted April 10, 2019 at 10:23am PST

We have a winner for our Aspen-Snowmass lift ticket giveaway on INSTAGRAM, check it out... <a href="http://www.instagram.com/predicting_sickdays/">http://www.instagram.com/predicting_sickdays/</a>

Colorado, and Sun Valley to Big Sky are the places to be this weekend... heres why:

#1 - A strong and cold storm is moving through Colorado and out onto the plains on Thursday, with moderate to heavy snow totals all across western Colorado, a storm total 1 to 2 feet for all areas! Northern resorts across Summit and Grand Counties will be favored under a northwest flow across the mountains.

#2 Resorts in the northern Rockies (Sun Valley through Big Sky look good) will see snow, mostly light to moderate, now through the weekend, for some fun fresh snow all weekend.

If you like sunshine plus deep fresh snow, go to Colorado, anywhere, northern resorts favored, but Aspen is looking at near a foot to 1.5 feet overall by Friday as the storm clears out... If you like the snow to be falling while on the slopes, head to the northern Rocky Mountains for best fresh coverage!

<strong>Now through the weekend
