A-Basin starts making snow; More in the forecast this week CO, UT, WY, MT

Stellar crystal sight this morning with A-Basin making snow. The ingredients all came together with a few inches of new natural snow and colder temps in the teens and 20s.

Natural new snow + blowing artificial snow. A-Basin is off and running. 10/10/2021.

I’m forecasting a good week ahead for the intermountain West including Colorado, Wyoming, Utah, Idaho, and Montana. A stronger, colder front will drive through Tuesday-Thursday followed by a kicker on the backside through UT, WY, and CO with an early season brief, weak NW Flow. What to expect:

  • Winter Storm Watches for higher elevations
  • Several inches of accumulation
  • Temps drop 20 degrees on the highest peaks
  • 14er temps near zero by Friday-Saturday
  • Wind gusts hit 50-90mph Tuesday-Wednesday higher up
My forecast for Colorado’s highest peaks. 10/10/2021.
  • Jackson Hole, WY (10k+): 6-12 inches
  • Alta, UT: 4-10″
  • Big Sky, MT: 4-10″

Here’s my forecast video so can graphically see how this week plays out:

    I’m planning a trip top Big Sky so I’m looking forward to anything you put out related to MT.
