Another report from our friends at powderchasers.com.  for the full report please visit their website.

Get ready for several days of snowfall in the Rockies as several cold fronts begin to impact the are on Saturday and continue through Wednesday of next week.  Last weeks chase took me to Snowbird where they ended up with 12-14 inches of frosty feathers and sub zero temps sending my board sticking like sandpaper even on steeper pitches! That cold air will return by Monday night next week when the strongest wave of snow might affect the West with a good shot of epic conditions by Tuesday.    Colorado and Wyoming will reap the benefits early this weekend as steady light to moderate snow begins by Saturday morning and continues through Sunday with 4-7 inches each day with heavier amounts possible near Steamboat where westerly winds favor their orographics.

Saturday- Tetons (Light to moderate snow during the day), Steamboat (3-6 inches)

Sunday- (Steamboat or Beaver Creek with continued light to moderate additional 3-6)

Monday- Wasatch of Utah – Big or Little Cottonwood Canyon- 4-7 with more by PM

Tuesday- Deep Powder day possible in the Wasatch as well as Vail

Wednesday- Colorado for the leftover snow showers (I-70 Corridor)
