We're waking up to beautiful conditions on Tuesday morning with clear skies and temps in the single digits to low teens. Sunny skies, light winds, and temps in the 20s will be the story for the rest of the day.


Increasing cloud coverage on Tuesday night and into Wednesday morning will signal our next chance for a few flakes through Wednesday. This isn't anything to get excited about as we'll only be looking at anywhere from a coating to maybe an inch. We can also expect windy conditions and temps in the teens.

Thursday - Friday

We'll then be tracking mostly dry conditions on Thursday morning ahead of the snow machine ramping back up by Thursday afternoon. This wave isn't overly strong but it could provide us with a light refresh through Friday, with soft(ish) turns on Friday and maybe first chair Saturday.

In total, look for 2-6 inches from multiple waves of snow from Thursday afternoon through Friday night. Temps will climb into the teens on Friday with a light wind out of the west-northwest.

Travel Forecast

Mostly dry road surfaces will be encountered through roughly midday Thursday. There could be a few wet and icy road surfaces on Wednesday but travel should cruise along at normal speeds.

Our next chance for snowy road surfaces and slower travel speeds will arrive on Thursday evening and continue through Friday. I would plan for extra travel time from Thursday evening through Friday night.

Following dry road surfaces on Saturday, we'll be tracking more wet, icy, and snowy road surfaces by late Sunday and into next Monday. Plan for extra travel time on Presidents Day.

Extended Forecast

Upcoming Weekend & Beyond

Any remaining snow showers should come to an end by Saturday morning, followed by partly sunny skies, temps in the teens, and calming winds through Saturday afternoon.

Following dry conditions on Saturday night and into Sunday morning, we'll likely receive another round of light to moderate snowfall during the second half of Sunday and potentially into Monday. First chair Monday could offer soft turns.

Looking further ahead, we could catch another 1-2 days of dry weather early next week ahead of more snow around Thursday, February 22, and again around the final days of February (26-28). Overall, the pattern is active with multiple rounds of snow ahead. I'll call that good news!

NEW: Powder Vision

In addition to our new "Live Snow" data that shows hourly snowfall from nearby weather stations, we built a system to estimate the amount of snow that accumulates on a snow stake camera so that you can track hour-by-hour snowfall for the last 24 hours.

Many ski resorts have snow stake cameras and this allows us to (try to) figure out how much snow falls each hour. We're calling this "Powder Vision".

  1. Go to any ski resort screen in OpenSnow with a snow stake camera.
  2. Tap the "Snow Report" tab.
  3. View the latest snow stake camera snapshot and hour-by-hour snowfall for the last 24 hours.

We have over 60 snow stake cameras available right now and we do our best to add new cams to OpenSnow if we can host them.

Powder Vision and Live Snow are available on OpenSnow.com and in the OpenSnow app with an All-Access subscription. All-Access includes 10-day snow forecasts, high-resolution weather maps, expert local analysis, custom snow alerts, iOS widgets, and much more.
