Short Range Forecast Discussion
The forecast for this weekend and early next week, across the west, is
High Pressure Dominates

Friday and Saturday the far Northern Rockies and Washington Cascades will see some moderate resort elevation snowfall (max about 1 foot for the Cascades and less for northern Idaho/ northwest Montana, with base elevation snow level issues for some), then Saturday into Sunday we see some moderate snow for for southwest Montana/ northwest Wyoming including Big Sky and Jackson Hole. Otherwise, a strong ridge of upper-level high pressure dominates the pattern across the western US for lots of sun, something Tahoe and Mammoth are getting sick of by now. The dry and mostly sunny, warmer high pressure pattern continues into next Monday/ Tuesday, though we may see some showers moving in across the southwest US and California. Stay tuned... CM

7 day to 2 week+ forecast (since 1998) - 28 January to 07 February, 2014 - COLORADO/ NEW MEXICO: We expect storm-blocking higher pressure ridging to continue across the west coast for the rest of January, with milder than average temperatures and mostly sunny skies in between mostly short bursts of snow (fast moving or weak storms like the one we expect Tuesday/ Wednesday). It looks like the incessant upper-level high pressure ridge will weaken and start yielding to some Pacific storms as we move into February, the first few days should be the transition. Due to this, we are expecting February (as has seemed to be the case a lot in the last few years) to be more active across the west, more specifically the southwest US, but including Colorado and northern New Mexico, for more frequent and possibly significant snowfalls. NORTHWEST US and SOUTHWEST CANADA: We expect storm-blocking higher pressure ridging to continue across the west coast for the rest of January, with milder than average temperatures overall, and occasional snowfall with base area snow level issues for most storms (aka rain). It looks like the incessant upper-level high pressure ridge will weaken and start yielding to some Pacific storms as we move into February, the first few days should be the transition. Due to this, we are expecting February (as has seemed to be the case a lot in the last few years) to be more active across the west, more specifically the southwest US, but also including southwest Canada and the northwest US (Cascades and northern Rocky Mountains), for colder temperatures, more powder (and less/ no base elevation rain), and significant snowfalls. TAHOE/ MAMMOTH/ NORTHERN SIERRA; We expect storm-blocking higher pressure ridging to continue across the west coast for the rest of January, with milder than average temperatures and mostly sunny skies in between mostly short bursts of snow (fast moving or weak storms like the relatively mild one with low/ resort base elevation snow level issues that we expect Monday/ Tuesday). It looks like the incessant upper-level high pressure ridge will weaken and start yielding to some Pacific storms as we move into February, the first few days should be the transition. Due to this, we are expecting February (as has seemed to be the case a lot in the last few years) to be more active across the west, more specifically the southwest US, but including Tahoe-Mammoth, for frequent and significant snowfalls. SOUTHWEST US AND SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA; We expect storm-blocking higher pressure ridging to continue across the west coast for the rest of January, with milder than average temperatures and mostly sunny skies in between mostly short bursts of snow (fast moving or weak storms like the relatively mild one with resort elevation snow level issues -rain- that we expect Monday/ Tuesday). It looks like the incessant upper-level high pressure ridge will weaken and start yielding to some Pacific storms as we move into February, the first few days should be the transition. Due to this, we are expecting February (as has seemed to be the case a lot in the last few years) to be more active across the west, more specifically the southwest US, including Mountain High and other SoCal resorts, for occasional to frequent and at times significant snowfalls. UTAH: We expect storm-blocking higher pressure ridging to continue across the west coast for the rest of January, with milder than average temperatures and mostly sunny skies in between mostly short bursts of snow (fast moving or weak storms like the one we expect Tuesday/ Wednesday). It looks like the incessant upper-level high pressure ridge will weaken and start yielding to some Pacific storms as we move into February, the first few days should be the transition. Due to this, we are expecting February (as has seemed to be the case a lot in the last few years) to be more active across the west, more specifically the southwest US, including Utah and even northern Utah, for more frequent and possibly significant snowfalls. WYOMING/ MONTANA: We expect storm-blocking higher pressure ridging to continue across the west coast for the rest of January, with milder than average temperatures and mostly sunny skies in between mostly short bursts of snow (fast moving or weak storms like the one we expect Tuesday/ Wednesday).

It's a mountain with multiple topographical personalities...long runs, wide-open groomed cruisers and pristine powder-filled bowls. Two of America's hairiest natural scare tactics - Mott and Killebrew Canyons. Steeps like The Face and Gunbarrel. And rows of regal pines spaced so perfectly, you'd swear Nature and the Gods of Tree Skiing were in cahoots. Most importantly, there's our legendary deep powder, which descends from the sky to serve up skiing and riding with California's most vertical. Heavenly is located on the south shore of Lake Tahoe. The resort spans two states with 50% of the terrain in Nevada and another 50% in California. Heavenly has four base lodges; Stagecoach and Boulder Lodges in Nevada; and the California Lodge and the Gondola at Heavenly Village located in California.
