Snowbird had another sneak on powder day with improving conditions as the day progressed (8-10 inches at upper elevations- face shots with some crust on Southerly exposures).

 

Snow will continue over I-70 in Colorado for another several hours before the front retreats North towards Meeker, Craig, Uinta Mountains, and perhaps Steamboat.

Utah will be back in the flow from the Northeast bringing Snowbird back into action on Tuesday. Predicted amounts suggest 6-9 inches with a chance of deeper pockets in the higher up at the ridges.

 

In Colorado the winds shift to the Southwest on Tuesday ending most snow over the Front Range and I-70. Increase snow over Colorado on Wednesday as the front stalled at the Wyoming/Colorado border retreats south. This will ignite another 6-10 inches of snow along I-70 during the late AM and PM, don’t miss the last epic day of the year!
