Snow hits Alberta/BC high peaks

Light snow dusted the high peaks in Alberta/BC overnight. This includes Mount Athabasca, Mount Andromeda, Mount Rundle, Banff and Lake Louise higher terrain, and Kicking Horse.

Why? A cold front is moving through. How much more snow will fall in Alberta/BC? I’m forecasting another 1-3 inches through Wednesday on the highest peaks.

This front will then dive south through Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Utah, and Colorado where the higher peaks will get dusted with new snow. Some of the very highest peaks could get 6″ or more. Forecasting for a few more locations:

  • Big Sky, MT: 1″
  • Kings Peak, UT: 6″
  • Berthoud Pass, CO: 4″
  • Wolf Creek, CO: 4″
  • Taos Ski, NM: 1″
