The 5-day snowfall forecast

Here's the 5-day snowfall forecast from the GFS model. It won't be exactly right (5-day snow forecasts are never that accurate), but it clearly shows the trend: head north my friends! The storm in the northwest will be somewhat warm, so higher elevations are best (above 5,000ft in Washington State). Jackson Hole and Grand Targhee should do very well with powder days on Thursday and Saturday, and maybe Friday.
