Snowy period ahead for the West

Tomer’s Take

  • 3-4 different April storm systems will slide across the West through 4/19 with significant grand total snowfall at mid and higher elevations.
  • This will put the brakes on the Spring melt while adding new snow accumulation to mid and higher elevations.

Bulk of snow timeline:

Wasatch: 4/11-4/13, 4/16-4/17

Tetons: 4/10-4/14, 4/16-4/17

Colorado Zones: 4/11-4/13, 4/17

California Sierra: 4/11, 4/14-4/16

    Good to hear that more snow is on the way since overall the snowpack is below average. Good news!

    Thanks so much Chris for the update. Your reports here and on UTube were a big help in planning our ski trips these past couple months and following the powder.
