Powder Predictor

Race weekend is here, with fast course and variable weather

Next week looking good for a couple of more pre-holiday powder days

By Reid Griebling

Race weekend is upon us, with cloudy weather and scattered snow showers in the forecast for much of the weekend as several weak disturbances pass to our north. Wind canceled the downhill Friday, but today's super G is still scheduled for 11 a.m.

Light snow will fall off and on for much of the weekend, with 1-2 inches of possible accumulation expected each day. Snow in the valleys is unlikely as temps will be too warm for any real accumulation.

Warm temps in Vail and Beaver Creek mid-week along with unseasonal mist has blanketed both mountains with a glaze of ice, so those of you venturing off of the groomed trails beware.

Temps will remain somewhat seasonal, as on-mountain highs will reach the 20s, with overnight lows in the teens. Today looks much the same as Friday, although we may see a little more sunshine peak through the heavy clouds.

Winds will be brisk out of the west at 15-20 mph and gusts into the 30's. This should also be the norm for much of the weekend as energy moves through. Weekend totals for snow look light, as 3-6 inches total is expected by Sunday evening.

There is a chance for more significant snow early next week as a low pressure system moves south along the California coast. However, this system looks to cut-off and lose much of its energy as it moves inland.

If that energy can be sustained, Aspen/Snowmass will have a good shot at a powder day Tuesday Dec. 7, as this system will move in from the southwest.

Should be a great weekend for the racers and spectators alike as temps will be mild for fans and snow should be limited for the racers on the terrifying Birds of Prey course.

Early season snow and polar temps in the past two weeks has made this course one of the fastest to date, and nothing is better than watching the world's best take on the United States' best race course.

After today's super G, there's a giant slalom scheduled for Sunday on the Birds of Prey.

Finally, wintry weather will again grace us late next week as a stronger jet stream brings in colder storms from the Gulf of Alaska. Perfect timing for one or two more powder days before our holiday guests arrive.

For those of you enjoying the races this weekend, have fun, be safe, cheer loud as it may be the last time you see Bode Miller on the Birds of Prey course.

Enjoy!
