POWDER WATCH-MONTANA, WYOMING,IDAHO- JUNUARY ARRIVES NEXT WEEK!
IS THIS REALLY HAPPENING? JUNE 9, 2017 POWDER POST
POTENT STORM IS GOING TO BRING SIGNIFICANT SNOWFALL TO MONTANA, NORTHERN WYOMING AND AREAS OF IDAHO EARLY NEXT WEEK! The areas around Big Sky, Red Mountain Lodge will see significant snowfall above 8,000 feet Monday/Tuesday (9-16). Junuary will dump snow as far south as the Tetons of Wyoming with the highest amounts in Yellowstone National Park. Expect wide areas of 6-12 inches in northern areas of Wyoming, with perhaps 9-16 inches in some higher elevations of Montana. Some snow will be falling over Teton Pass and even lower elevations near Jackson (Mixed rain) by Monday night (2-5). Central Idaho will also reap some snow in the Sawtooth’s (3-7). I am personally in Mountain Bike Mode headed to Aspen this weekend and perhaps Jackson or Sun Valley next. Significant rainfall of 1-2 inches is likely at lower elevations next week from northern Wyoming into southern Montana. Wildflower Alert! “All this moisture is going to create epic riding mid summer and we expect to take full advantage of ripping the trails this summer” I often look for Sun Valley at this time of year for wildflowers and early season taking advantage of the lower elevations. Jackson is in good shape with most lower elevation trails riding well.. Park City is shaping up nicely below Mid Mountain. Peak wildflowers will be epic by mid summer.

Here is the total moisture expected through Wednesday Morning (2 inches in many areas).
