There is one storm system on the horizon for the West early next week. Overall, it’s not major and the pattern doesn’t look as active as last week.
Whistler/Blackcomb, BC will do the best with the jet stream positioned favorably. You’ll also notice some snowfall in my forecast below for Tahoe ski areas and Mammoth, CA (2-6″).
Wolf Creek ski area is officially open in Colorado – the first ski area to open. They are no longer the dark horse in this yearly race. This is the 2nd year in a row opening first. Wolf Creek is a magical place meteorologically speaking. More on that in a later post.
Arapahoe Basin opens tomorrow, Sunday 10/17/2021. I talked with a friend who works at Loveland Ski Area and they think it might take another 1-2 weeks for their opening.
