The quiet weather pattern is going to continue for another 5 days or so. Plenty of cold for snowmaking on the lower half of the mountains with inversions up top. I just wanted to update you on the storm for the first weekend of December that we have been watching.

A large area of low pressure is going to move slowly towards the West Coast from the Gulf of Alaska next week. We could see precip begin as early as Thursday as the first wave is pushed into the West Coast. With the Southwesterly flow the snow levels are going to be high to start up around 8000 ft. The heavier precip slowly pushes in Friday and lasts through the weekend. There is plenty of cold air at the center of the low pressure so as it pushes closer snow levels should fall all the way to lake level over the weekend.

There is more moisture with this storm than last weekend, maybe double, and it looks like the cold air will work in a little sooner. Right now it looks like we could see several feet of snow above 7500 ft. with plenty of snow below that even down to lake level. It’s way too early to hone in on snow levels yet. This is still in the 6-9 day window and confidence increases once we’re in the 5 day Window. So stay tuned for updates…BA
