We know. Central and Southern Wyoming aren’t known for rad, big mountain terrain but that doesn’t mean they don’t have quality skiing.

Located just outside of towns like Laramie and Casper, Wyoming, a few ski areas are about to see their best skiing of the season if NOAA’s models are accurate.

Hogadon Basin and Snowy Range Ski Area are both set to receive over a foot of snow out of this storm and Casper/Laramie skiers and riders couldn’t be more stoked on the accumulation.

LET IT SNOW!

Forecasted Snowfall Totals:

Hogadon Basin – 19″ (10″ in the last 24)

Snowy Range, WY – 12″ (11″ in the last 24)

Meadowlark Ski Lodge – 9″
