Copper Mountain Daily Snow

January 6, 2020 7:43am MST


As expected, Sunday was dry, and then on Sunday night, a storm brought snow.

The official report on Monday morning at 500am is that 1 inch accumulated at mid-mountain. This is on the low end of our 1-4 inch forecast because the heaviest snow stayed just to the north and east of the mountain. Still, one inch of new snow is a nice way to refresh the groomers on Monday morning.

On Monday, look for temperatures in the teens, mostly cloudy skies, additional snow showers, and light accumulations of a dusting to an inch or two.

On Tuesday and Wednesday, we will see partly-to-mostly sunny weather with temperatures in the 20s.

The next storm will bring waves of snow from Wednesday evening through Friday evening. Both Thursday and Friday could deliver soft snow with a storm total of 4-8 inches. I hope to offer more details soon about the timing of any heavier snow and which of the two days might be the best powder day.

From Friday night through Saturday midday, we will see a break in the snow.

Then a stormy period will begin on Saturday afternoon or evening and continue for about four days, ending around Wednesday night or Thursday (January 15-16). These multi-day storm cycles often lead to the best powder conditions so my excitement is rising. I’ll provide more details in the next few days as the forecast models become more consistent in their predictions.

Thanks for reading and check back each morning for daily updates!
