The storm track stays active across the West from Friday through Monday, with a few different waves of snow in my forecast–especially the northern Rockies. The jet stream should dip far enough south to finally deliver snow to Lake Tahoe after a very dry and warm stretch.
The Northeast looks good, too, with two different Alberta Clippers swinging through this weekend. Snow amounts will be light in comparison to the recent Nor'easters.
Rockies: Wyoming, Idaho or Montana are the places to be with four different waves of snow. That means snow on Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday afternoon. I'm expecting heavy snow accumulations at Sun Valley, Schweitzer, Tamarack, Jackson Hole, Grand Targhee, Big Sky, Bridger Bowl, Whitefish and Discovery. Storm totals by Monday could exceed three FEET at the ski resorts.
Three waves of snow hit the mountains of Utah on Saturday, Sunday and Monday afternoon. Each of those waves of snow looks to bring moderate accumulations to Canyons, Park City, Brighton, Alta and Snowbird.
Colorado won't get as much snow with only a quick-hitting area of light to moderate snow in the Northern Mountains on Saturday evening into early Sunday. Steamboat is the best bet for accumulation.
California: Finally, new snow hits Lake Tahoe on Friday evening and continues on Saturday. A second storm hits Sunday afternoon into Monday. Heavy accumulations are possible at Northstar, Heavenly, Kirkwood, Sierra-at-Tahoe and south at Mammoth Mountain.
Northeast: I'm predicting three light to moderate snowfalls. Expect a dusting on Friday, then a slightly larger storm on Saturday, and the third storm on Sunday into Monday and possibly Tuesday. If you're skiing on Saturday, I'd suggest Whiteface, Sugarbush, Smugglers' Notch, Jay Peak or Stowe. If you're skiing on Sunday or Monday, I'd suggest Holiday Valley, Camelback, Hunter Mountain, Mount Snow or Shawnee Mountain.
