EPIC ALERTS CONTINUE in the Cascades, Northern Idaho, and British Columbia where up to 35-40 inches has dumped in the Northwest in the past 3 days.    2 more storms are due  both Tuesday (10 AM to Midnight) and again Wednesday night and Thursday.     The Tuesday PM dump will bring 3,000 foot snow levels with total accumulations of 12-15 inches favoring resorts from Stevens,  Alpental , and Crystal. Wednesday night and Thursday will be colder (1500 to 2,000 foot snow levels) with another 5-10 inches (Drier).  These amounts could be higher in a convergence zone that might set up over Stevens and Alpental with the colder temperatures.  If I had to hoist a Blower Alert it would be for Thursday in the Cascades,  however deeper snow will be found on Wednesday AM.  SHHHHH,   Crystal Mountain never opened today due to power outages.  25 Plus overnight inches was just begging to be ridden!  Patrons were hiking the beginner slopes near the base area!

Central and northern Idaho as well as NW Montana will reap rewards over the next few days.  Models track the moisture directly over northern and central resorts especially Tuesday night and Wednesday (6-14 inches likely in most areas).  Sun Valley, Brundage and resorts to the north will do best.  Moderate snowfall will continue into Friday.

Utah, Wyoming, Colorado all see snowfall beginning Tuesday in the Tetons (Light to moderate) and increasing Wednesday and Thursday.   The Wasatch is favored  late Wednesday AM through Thursday AM (6-12).   Colorado resorts will see fresh POW late Wednesday into Thursday.  Resorts favored by NW flow along I-70 from Copper, Steamboat, Vail, Winter Park will generally see 5-10 inches.  Higher amounts are possible over Vail Pass.

The extended POW Cast shows high pressure taking aim at the Northwest this weekend.  Latest data shows moderate snow over the Tetons and Southern Montana Friday-Sunday. The Wasatch and northern Colorado will be on the southern edge of moisture. Any changes in positioning will change the outlook.
