Where to be this weekend... April 5-7...
Posted April 4, 2019 at 12:39PST

INSTAGRAM Aspen-Snowmass lift ticket giveaway... score a couple of day passes to your favorite mountain for some end of season festivities and great snow! The chance of winning is really good! Go to http://www.instagram.com/predicting_sickdays/

A few storms move into the Pacific Northwest down through Tahoe, and across Utah and Colorado, affecting Sun Valley, Big Sky, and Jackson Hole as well, delivering snow, but with some snow level issues...

By Friday afternoon...
Screen Shot 2019-04-04 at 12.40.10

High pressure ridging will be building in across the west coast as we move toward Saturday and Sunday, but first, we have 2 storms, today and another on Friday, hit Tahoe with a few inches to 1/2 foot of snow this afternoon through tonight, then on Friday a stronger system moves through with 1/2 to 1 foot of snow. Show up on Saturday for a warmer and spring conditions kind of day in Tahoe! Snow levels will be above 6,000 feet, near 7,000 feet at times for Tahoe.

Utah and Colorado will then see some snow Friday and Saturday, and the higher elevations mean less snow level issues. Light to moderate snow totals are expected, with some powder days possible Saturday for Jackson Hole and Big Sky as Sun Valley to Jackson Hole and Big Sky resorts will see snow now and through Saturday. Saturday's storm system may generate some Sunday powder days across northern Utah and Colorado. Southwest slopes are favored... Go get it!

We are giving away 2 Aspen-Snowmass lift tickets for use next weekend or the following one (19th-21st)! There will be a lot of "end of season" stuff going on... Be sure to follow us on Instagram for a shot and the announcement! CM
