Let’s not count our snowflakes before they’ve fallen, but it’s looking like we’re going to be skiing some impressively deep snow in the coming days, and it’s going to be blower at that. 5-6 inches (liquid precipitation) over the basin and 6-8 along the crest in the next 7 days. These are all cold storms with at least 15:1 ratios up on the peaks so this would equate to around 7-10 feet by next friday… This could be another 100 inch week, our 4th of the season and one for each month except Jan.
Right now, we’re looking at 12-18 inches at lake level, 18-24 inches above 7000 ft., & 2-3 feet on the crest by Saturday evening. If we only get half the snowfall predicted in the coming week, we’re still going to have some impressive totals and fabulous skiing in the coming week, and there’s still no end to the storm train in sight.
