Powder Predictor

West to east flow returns to Colorado, Vail Valley; snow back in forecast

Possible powder day for Beaver Creek's Talons Challenge

By Reid Griebling

A strong jet stream moving from west to east will increase the chance for active weather beginning Thursday. High clouds will move in today, bringing Pacific moisture and good orographics for much of the next five days.

Numerous disturbances will move through Colorado, giving most resorts in the state a good shot of snow for the weekend. Snow will begin to fall lightly tonight, with little accumulation expected for the Thursday morning report.

Temps for the next five days will again be seasonal, as on-mountain highs in the 20s and overnight lows in the teens can be expected through Sunday. Winds will be gusty from the west, with sustained winds in the 15-20 mph range and gusts in the 40 mph range over ridge tops.

This west to east flow is great news for the central mountains, as Aspen/Snowmass and Crested Butte should see good totals by Sunday evening. Right now models show that the heaviest of snow should fall Saturday into Sunday.

And with Beaver Creek hosting the Talon's Challenge Saturday, snow riders can expect some soft bumps for much of the day Saturday. We are a bit too far out to make any predictions just yet as to snow totals, and with the recent warming trend, a good amount of snow will need to fall to make any south-facing aspects soft under foot again.

The possibility of significant snowfall is expected; timing will once again be the issue. As for now, get those legs ready for 13 of the best bump runs this side of the Eagle River.
