Quick Update

Summary

Quick update on the storm over the next few days. Models have been a bit more aggressive with the incoming storm and best periods to ride.

Short Term Forecast

Resorts certainly picked up alot more snow than was forecasted today with Bogus and Tamarack picked up 6+ inches. Originally it looked like we would get snow most of the night tonight. Unfortunately that looks like it will no longer be the case with showers really not picking up strength until tomorrow morning. I still think most of the day tomorrow will be storm riding with 3-5 inches during the day. 

Showers will stop later in the day and will resume Thursday morning as precipitation wraps around the low pressure. The precipitation and wind will be moving in from the northwest, so I expect Brundage and Tamarack to do very well. I think we could see a good 4-8 inches of snow from Thursday morning and through the day. 

Models are in disagreement on if we see continued moisture into Friday. I think there is a solid possibility though it will probably be limited to the more northern locations of Brundage. 

Saturday-Friday (4/1-4/7) is still forecasted to be stormy. I don't think there will be a bad day to ride and conditions will continuously get better through the week. If possible models are even more aggressive with our downscaled GFS plumes showing 2.5+ inches of liquid through the week. Temperatures will be great with snow levels hovering around 5k feet now through Saturday before dropping to below 4k feet on Sunday. Snow levels will remain below 4k feet through the week and moving below 1k feet at times. 

All that said.... every day will be great next week. I will dive deeper into details as we get closer.

Extended Forecast

Models are starting to come into agreement that we dry out after next week. The only question I think at this point is warm and dry or cold and dry. Either way, I think the end is in sight. At least for this winter!
