Blower pow is coming to Big Sky Friday-Sunday, so get your powder skis waxed up– this one is going to be a doozy!
Currently, NOAA is forecasting upwards of 14″ for the summit of Lone Peak and snow will be falling below base level, creating for some more of the stellar conditions Big Sky has seen continuously this season.
“The first in a series of winter weather systems will produce areas of snow tonight through Friday. Expect snow accumulation on mountain passes. Be prepared for variable driving conditions as rain in Southwest valleys turns to snow at higher elevations. Periods of more widespread accumulating snow are expected through the weekend.” – NWS Great Falls
Snow will continue into next week so don’t be bummed if you’re working this weekend. It’ll be really good on Monday.
