7 day powdercast: heavy snow

Posted By: The Ski Channel on February 12, 2011 10:19 am

Checking in with my brotha from anotha motha at Powderchasers.com we get another powder forecast for the West.  Below is part of his report and to see the whole entry please visit his website at powderchasers.com.

To all of the powder freaks that got out last weekend in the Rockies the chase kept me busy jumping between Utah and Colorado where over 40 inches fell in just 4 days at Vail! Currently year to to date snowfall totals are a tight race with Jackson at 349, Alta at 348, and Vail at 322. Wolf Creek who often leads the pack in Colorado is at 266 inches. Sun and warmer temps are in store for all areas early this week with the exception of the Northwest where they finally will see heavy snow especially near Mount Baker where up to 18 inches are expected by Monday.  That storm is just moving inland this morning and will also deliver around 10 inches to the resorts to the South such as Crystal and Stevens.   The Sierra will see a break a  long dry spell by Wednesday when a potent but fairly warm system should dump around 15 inches of medium to heavy density snow by Thursday in the Tahoe Basin.   Wednesday will be the storm ski day and Thursday might be even deeper.  

Sunday:  Mount Baker (11-18) less at Crystal but still decent.

Wednesday- Squaw (Storm ski day 8-14 during the day)
