I'm forecasting one storm system for the West, one for the Pacific Northwest and one for the Northeast over the next five days.  

Colorado, Utah: One storm system hits Utah on Friday and Colorado both Friday and Saturday. I'm forecasting light to moderate snow accumulation in Utah on Friday. The storm track takes the best snow through Southern Utah. I'm forecasting heavy snow accumulation in Colorado between Friday and Saturday. It's closing weekend at many resorts so this timing is perfect.

Wyoming, Montana, Idaho: This is not the snowiest of five-day stretches. A storm brushes southern Wyoming with light snow accumulation on Friday-Saturday. A storm brushes northern Idaho and northern Montana on Saturday. A slightly better storm may arrive Monday-Tuesday.  

Northeast: One storm system delivers light to moderate snow accumulation at the ski areas on Thursday. Light snow may linger Friday morning. Dry Saturday-Monday.

California: One storm system delivers light snow accumulation between Wednesday night and Thursday. That includes Tahoe and Mammoth. A much smaller storm could roll through on Monday.  

Pacific Northwest: One storm system delivers moderate snow accumulation between Friday night and Saturday to the volcanoes and high Cascades.  

Whistler/Blackcomb: One storm system delivers moderate snow accumulation between Friday night and Saturday. It will likely mix with rain lower on the mountain.  

Tomer's Take: Ski the Northeast or the Southern Mountains of Colorado on Friday, Purgatory, Breckenridge, Loveland or Whistler/Blackcomb on Saturday, and in the sunshine at A-Basin, Alta or Snowbird on Sunday.
