5 inches fell at Kirkwood last night with less further north. Its snowing heavy cream at the upper elevations of the Cottonwoods this morning with 4-5 inches overnight. Snow levels will drop slightly today as the winds shift in the Wasatch. Colorado gets the decaying leftovers. 11 inches has fallen in the past 24 hours in Little Cottonwood Canyon at the summits.  Much less (0-2 has fallen at the base due to very warm temps that are currently cooling). 


I would head to the Cottonwoods in Utah only for the novelty of cream skiing.  It rained at the base of Snowbird yesterday, but my best guess is currently it's snowing pure mank.  The upper elevations may ski smooth and fun.  If you're super lucky, cooling today and bullish model runs bring another 4-8 inches up top.  It's likely midday will ski better than first chairs.

Below: Short term NAM models showing another 6 inches plus for the Cottonwoods on Tuesday above 8,000 feet.  (Bullish). 


Decaying leftovers aim for Colorado Wednesday/Thursday.  Of all the models for Colorado, only 1 (GFS) seemed optimistic for 4-7 inches for the Continental Divide primarily from late tonight through late Wednesday evening.   Most of the moisture is headed south.  Summit will get teased with a coating of fresh cream and areas west may see less.  It possible Summit County resorts end up with 3-5 inches where areas at the summits near the Divide see higher amounts.  It's going to be wet snow which is a good thing with all the warm temps in the last several days (Covers up the chunk).  Some snow will linger over the Divide Wednesday night adding slightly to the totals at the Loveland Ski area. 

In the Sierra, snow is tapering this morning.  5 inches at Kirkwood, with much less further north. Telemetry at Squaw is only showing 1 inch (Skunk).  


High pressure late this week will break down early next.  The ensembles don't show any large systems in the west next week, however, the operational models depict some moderate snowfall for Colorado on Monday or Tuesday.  This system may focus on the ski areas closest to the Front Range of Colorado. 


Any concierge sign ups now for mid leval or greater get full benefits for all of next season!  Thats a good deal if chase and want custom forecasts.   You will have access to our forecasters for custom trip planning for powder.  Never miss a deep powder day!  


Also: check out this new product that will allow you to take your boots off in the snow outside your car and keep feet dry.  I would also use this for mountain biking in the summer.    skimatsllc.com
