|Notes||Alright, the weather is generally playing out this week as predicted; freezing levels are staying around 3-4000 feet and we're looking to gain a total of about 10 inches of new snow by Friday morning!
Then the extended forecast is calling for a very strong jet stream pointed right at us Saturday and Sunday with snow levels rising a bit but staying in the snow range for mid-mountain. So we could get a lot of heavy base-building snow at the mid and upper mountain. There's supposed to be a short spike in the temperatures Saturday night, but it's not supposed to go too high and should lower back below Heather Meadows by Sunday morning. The mid and upper elevations of the ski area could see two or more feet of snow and that would allow us to open!
The extended forecast for Christmas week is looking good, with cooler temperatures and precipitation expected. Stay tuned!
All we want for Christmas is a good cold jet stream!
