Snowfall returns to Vail/Beaver Creek for holiday weekend

Aspen/Snowmass favored again

By Reid Griebling

Snowfall rates at two inches per hour Thursday morning caught much of the Vail Valley with its pants down, as numerous accidents littered the interstate and local roads.

I was lucky enough to ski Beaver Creek Thursday after snow-blowing my driveway for a second time. A late start, but well worth it as pockets of snow up to 16 inches deep were common.

For the fourth time this year I was wrong the right way and have to admit I was dumbfounded to watch so much snow fall in such a short amount of time. A good thing too, as the crusty layer was still felt underfoot all day.

Light snow showers are hugging the Flat Tops Wilderness under light west winds this afternoon as we see this flow continue over the weekend. A series of storms are lined up off the coast of California, dumping large amounts of snow in the Sierras.

Similar to Thursday, models show that the central and southern mountains should get the brunt of snow. Aspen/Snowmass and areas like Silverton and Wolf Creek should see good amounts of snow by Monday, Feb. 21.

Off and on snow should show morning totals for the Aspen/Snowmass areas in the 3-5 inch range both Saturday and Sunday, with locally higher amounts on west/southwest facing aspects (6-8 inches).

Vail/Beaver Creek should expect morning totals in the 2-4 inch range for Saturday and Sunday, favoring The Beav' and Blue Sky Basin in Vail.

Temps will be mild, with on-mountain highs in the mid-20s and overnight lows in the teens. West/southwest winds will reach into the 25-mph range at times, with gusts hitting the 30's.

Light totals for Vail and Beaver Creek, however. With this past drenching of snow on Thursday, La Nina seems to be on our side so far. Lets keep our dancing shoes on as this past week it worked. Be safe over the holiday.

Enjoy!
