Brief synopsis. – EPIC ALERT SIERRA CONTINUES! POWDER ALERTS- ROCKIES

Snow has ended in the Rockies this morning with many areas in Colorado picking up 7-12 inches.Silverton Mountain reported 12 inches yesterday morning and will be open Friday-Sunday for guided skiing!   Powder Mountain closed early yesterday due to lightning and convective snow thunder at 1PM (12 inches) and should be epic today.   Snowbird and Alta had great conditions yesterday with 8-12 inches of fresh medium density snow.

The Sierra will be under the EPIC FLAG beginning Saturday with 3-5 Friday night, 6-11 Saturday, and 3-6 Saturday night (Medium density, great for base building).  Total amounts will be in the 2-3 feet range at the highest peaks.  Areas south towards Mammoth will see 12-15 inches on Saturday (Might be  few hours behind the Tahoe basin).  Sunday might be the better day there especially above timberline with improving visibility. Oregon and northern California (Shasta) will see very deep amounts Saturday/Saturday night.

The Wasatch will see moderate snowfall again from Sunday mid morning through Sunday night.  Expect 9-14 inches at most resorts above 7,000 feet.  Snowbasin and Powder might be favored with SW flow.  Big Cottonwood will do well also.  Storm ski day- Sunday, Deep again Monday?

Another storm moves into the Sierra on Tuesday with colder temps, dry density snow and will migrate over the Rockies Tuesday night.   This storm is packing lots of cold air, less moisture but still 1 foot or more possible especially in the Sierra.  The Rockies will get healthy leftovers mid week.
