Use the sunscreen today with mostly sunny skies on the slopes. A ridge of high pressure will make a short visit to give you one delightful day of spring skiing (Friday). It may get a little mushy on the lower slopes.
Short Term Forecast
The weekend will see a 5,000 foot snow level with increasing clouds on Saturday. There will be a chance of snow or mix of rain/snow on the lower slopes. The same mix pattern will continue into Sunday, but more clearing periods. There will be fresh snow on the upper slopes, starting later Saturday and by Sunday morning, you'll ski new snow on the upper slopes.
Many areas will close or have limited operations after this weekend. Please check your favorite area website for details.
