When it's good, it's good. A parade of storms continues to drop heavy snow across the Rockies, and the Arctic air is keeping the snow in place. The storm track stays consistent, with snow moving west to east across the country later this week, weekend and into next week. Take a look at the forecast graphic: one particular storm will dump snow at the ski resorts in Tahoe, Utah, Wyoming, Colorado and eventually, the Northeast.
Northeast: Heavy Lake-Effect snow continues through this weekend. For the resorts away from the Great Lakes, a storm Sunday–Monday should deliver a few inches of new snow. We'll see a brief warm-up next week followed by another shot of Arctic Air. Holiday Valley, Peek'n Peak, Whiteface Mountain, Jay Peak and Bolton Valley will all do well.
Rockies: The next snowstorm hits the ski areas on Saturday in Wyoming/Utah and then Colorado on Sunday. I'm forecasting 6" or more in the Wasatch, Tetons and Colorado Rockies with this storm. Little Cottonwood Canyon should maximize the snowfall and could get 1–2 feet. In Colorado, the Central and Northern Mountains should get the most. Resorts such as Steamboat, Vail, Aspen, Loveland and Winter Park will get the most snow.
California: Finally, we'll see some snowfall for the Tahoe ski areas late this week and again Saturday. We should be able to squeeze out at least 6" of snow between the two shots of snow.
