Is anybody else just feening for the snow that's on the brink of hitting the West Coast? At home drinking Deschutes Chasin Freshies, checking the snow report dying for some turns.

There was an avalanche in Colorado today a couple miles from where I was riding. It's been puking snow in summit county. :)
Yeah I heard Colorado already had heavy snow today.

coming friday...



Coldest storm of the season will move into BC and theCascades on Friday. Snow levels will drop near sea level by Saturday morning under NW flow allowing significant blower powder to Accumulate. Mount Baker is favored with NW flow. A convergence zone of cold orographics through Saturday night will extend snowfall over Stevens Pass and Alpental. Areas like Crystal will see moderate amounts extending into Oregon through Sunday.

Snowfall will extend into most of Idaho, Western Montana, Wasatch of Utah and Southern Colorado by Friday. My thoughts are for a very deep dump for the Wasatch Saturday/Sunday, Light snow from Aspen and the 4 corners Friday, and heavier snowfall for most of Colorado Saturday night and Sunday. My picks will be Aspen, Telluride, Vail, Steamboat, and most of Summit Countyby Sunday afternoon. The Front Range near Denver will see light snow on Sunday.

Bottom Line: Deep cold dump, lot’s of Buzz, but for many areas dry powder might not be the best for base building. With that said, many areas in the West including Aspen, Vail, Snowbird, Grand Targhee,Whistler, Steamboat, Jackson Hole already have seen 50-65 inches of snowfall this season at the peaks. The Northwest saw great snowfall in early October but inconsistent amounts. Most of the Cascades will reap rewards this weekend. My vote will be Baker and Stevens Friday/Saturday and perhaps Crystal Sunday. The Sierra may see a few flakes on the Eastern side near I-80 by Saturday.

Wonder if any thing will open after this weekends storm?? Stevens should have enough snow to open some lifts. Maybe crystal too?

^^Entirely possible. Looking at telemetry, Stevens has 9" at the base. Typically Stevens likes to have 30"+ at the base to open. Green Valley at Crystal has 16", Baker telemetry isn't working right so I'm not sure there.
