Saturday brings promising snowfall for The Sierra and most Northern Lake areas. The Sierra will see will experience heavy snow fall beginning Saturday morning from a front continuing to move north through the afternoon. The Northern Lake area is forecasted to receive 9-12 inches by Saturday night.

Sunday’s forecast shows Wasatach getting 3-5 inches near Park City, and 4-7 inches around the Cottonwoods area. Colorado will be getting some needed snow after unseasonably dry conditions, as 7-9 inches are expected to reach the southwest part of the state.

Monday calls for another 15 inches at Whistler Blackcomb!
