Nearly four feet of new snow this week will make for a glorious weekend on the slopes.
Short Term Forecast
Saturday will be a cool bluebird day, mountain high temperatures in the low 30's. Saturday late afternoon one final disturbance in this latest storm cycle looks to kick off another round of snow into the overnight. Sunday first chair thinking 2-6" of fresh for Snowbowl, Sunrise is likely a miss on this one. Another cool blue sky Sunday. Afternoon temperatures briefly warm up on a quiet Monday and a windy Tuesday. This all ahead of decent looking storm due mid next week 3/29-30.
Moving into April we may see the Pacific storm track relax with some more spring like days.
The avalanche danger is moderate to considerable at elevations above 10,500'. Human-triggered avalanches will be possible to likely on recently wind-loaded slopes. Steep wind-drifted, smooth and rounded, pillowed, or corniced slopes will be areas where an avalanche could be triggered.
Generally, low avalanche hazard exists below 10,500'. Watch for unstable snow in very steep and isolated pockets.
