Meteorologist Chris Tomer gives us the run down on where will be the snowiest this weekend. The hot spot this weekend is the West with two different storm systems lined-up.  The Northeast stays cold with two Alberta Clippers.

Utah, Colorado, New Mexico

One large storm system rolls through between Friday and Sunday.  A 2nd storm storm system arrives early next week.  Heavy snow accumulation possible in the Wasatch and the Southern Mountains of Colorado.  I'm forecasting 1-2 feet by Sunday night at Alta, Snowbird, Brighton, Solitude, Crested Butte, Silverton, and Wolf Creek.  An additional 1-2 feet possible early next week.  Brian Head should do well with this 2nd storm system.  Looking at Taos and Angel Fire, moderate snow accumulation likely this weekend with additional accumulation early next week.  Grand totals could push a foot by Monday afternoon.

Wyoming, Idaho, Montana

Two different storm systems are lined-up through Sunday.  An additional storm system arrives early/mid next week.  I'm forecasting light to moderate snow accumulations at Jackson Hole, Grand Targhee, Big Sky, and Discovery through Sunday.  Look for additional moderate accumulations early/mid next week.

California

Finally some moisture with two different storm systems lined-up through Sunday.  Possibly even a 3rd storm system early next week.  I'm forecasting moderate snow accumulation for the Sierra through Sunday.  Snow totals look to run 3-8 inches at Squaw/Alpine, Kirkwood, Heavenly, and Mammoth.  Additional moderate accumulation early next week.
 

Pacific Northwest

The storm track is shifting south.  That will leave the PNW on the northern periphery with light to moderate snow accumulation through Sunday.

 

Banff

The storm track is shifting south.  That will leave the Banff area on the periphery with only light snow accumulation primarily on Sunday-Monday.

Northeast

Temperatures stay consistently cold with a persistent northwest flow.  This flow will escort two different Albert Clipper's through the region.  Lake effect is also likely.  Overall, i'm forecasting light to moderate snow accumulation through Sunday.  For example, a grand total of 2-6 inches is possible at Killington, Sugarbush, Mount Snow, Stowe, Jay Peak, Okemo, Sunday River, and Sugarloaf.
 

Tomer's Take

On Friday ski Jackson Hole, Grand Targhee, or Big Sky, on Saturday ski Alta, Snowbird, Solitude, Brighton, or Mammoth, and on Sunday ski Wolf Creek, Silverton, Crested Butte, Alta, or Snowbird.
