As of Monday morning light snow showers continued in the Wasatch, Tetons, and the Pacific Northwest.  In looking at cams and telemetry here are some quick numbers.

10 inches overnight- Bachelor (Provided the cam was cleared on Sunday afternoon).

7-8 inches overnight at Jackson Hole

7-10 inches overnight at Crystal 

4-6 inches overnight at Stevens

4 inches overnight at Snowbird

3-4 inches overnight at Vail

Storm totals have exceed 32 inches in Little Cottonwood Canyon (Utah) where the road was closed for most of Sunday with most of resorts getting skied by the lucky folks that made it up early in the morning. Park City resorts did very well with 12-17 inch storm totals.  Alta broke 100 inches yesterday (Mid Mountain Base). 

In the next few days several systems will continue to focus 5-10 inches every 24 hours for the Tetons and Wasatch. The Wasatch will catch the Tetons today where another several inches will fall mid morning to early afternoon Monday.  Storm ski Monday. The Tetons look good on the models for Monday night into Tuesday with 6-9 inches likely for 1st chairs or tram. That system will impact Utah early Tuesday through Wednesday (Storm ski)- decreasing late Tuesday night). The Sierra grabs a teaser with 4-8 inches for your Tuesday turns. 

If you want FEET of snow head to Oregon where the focus in the next 48 hours will be the Cascades.  Bachelor will be buried by Tuesday.  2 feet or more will fall over Oregon through Tuesday afternoon!  Cold blower! The same will hold for the northern areas of Oregon. 

In the longer term, the heavier snow in Oregon eventually drops south into the Sierra late Wednesday night into Thursday (Moderate to perhaps heavier event).  That system takes a southern track into the San Juan Range of Colorado later this week with a good chance of heavy snowfall.   The Cascades and western BC stay active with heavy snow likely again late this week and the weekend. In the long term look to chase to the PNW and perhaps Whistler however this update is not focussed on this period. 

Let the chase continue!
