After some good snow in the central Rockies late this week the storm track will shift and favor the Northeast for colder temperatures and new snow. The West will warm up and dry out this weekend.

Northeast: Late week temperatures start mild with rain showers, but behind this storm system colder air slides in for Saturday through Monday. A second storm system moves in Saturday evening, continuing through Sunday with light to moderate snow accumulations at the ski areas including Killington, Mount Snow, Sunday River, Jay Peak and Sugarloaf USA. A third storm arrives on Monday afternoon through Tuesday with moderate snow accumulations. Enjoy! 

California: Conditions dry out and warm up between Friday and Sunday. There is one small, very light batch of Tahoe snow for Saturday evening. However, it has the potential to dry up upon entry so it's not reliable. The next organized storm system arrives Monday through Tuesday.

Colorado, Utah and New Mexico: Excellent new snow late this week moves east leaving the entire area dry and mild between Friday afternoon and Sunday. Very light moisture may slide through Utah on Monday but that's about it. 

Wyoming, Idaho and Montana: Excellent new snow late this week moves south leaving the entire area dry between Friday and Saturday. A small storm system slides in Sunday afternoon through Sunday night with light snow accumulations. Light snow may again pop-up Monday afternoon. 

Pacific Northwest: The pattern keeps the area mostly dry until early next week. A few isolated snow showers are possible over the highest terrain on Saturday afternoon. A more organized storm system arrives Monday through Tuesday.

Tomer's Take: Ski Loveland or Winter Park on Friday for new snow, in the sunshine at Snowbird or Vail on Saturday, and at Jay Peak or Sugarloaf on Sunday for new snow. On Monday, consider Big Sky or Jackson Hole.
