Snow, Snow Above Mid-Mtn, Big Snow

Looking at the forecast models this evening they all pretty much agree on the amount of precip through Thursday but disagree a little on when the heavy precip moves in at the end of the week.  We will see snow for the whole mountain Tuesday and Tuesday night, then the snow level may rise above the base lodge before falling to the Village on Friday. 

Let's break it down again based on the model average today.  In the Village we could see 2-4 inches Tuesday and 3-6 more Tuesday night before a change to rain on Wednesday.  At the base lodge we could see 3-6 inches Tuesday, 4-8 Tuesday night and 3-6 more Wednesday before a mix with rain.

From mid-mountain on up the forecast is for continuous snow through Sunday.  We could see 3-6 inches Tue, 4-8 Tue night, 3-6 Wed, and 2-4 inches every 12 hours Wed night-Fri.  Totals by Friday of 2-3 feet. 

Then things get really good as the cold trough pushes in bring a cold front and heavy snow to all elevations by Friday night.  The heavy snow will last through Saturday with snow showers through Sunday with the cold unstable air in place behind the front.  We could see 2-3 feet by Sunday.  That would bring totals above 7500 ft. to 4-6 feet and 3-4 feet at the base. 

Continued updates through the week.  BA
