Western US Weekend Outlook - Updated for Tuesday, February 24, 2015

This weekend is promising snow for all western US resort areas, with Colorado (including Aspen-Snowmass) looking like the snow king once again...
Friday and Saturday we see large scale low pressure carve out a trough across the western US, with a strong storm working its way from the northern Rocky Mountains/ northern Cascades, south through the rest of the west.
Friday and Saturday - Light to moderate snow is expected for the Cascades and northern Rocky Mountains (including north Idaho, Wyoming, and Montana), with snow to Tahoe/ Mammoth as well, on the order of 6" to 1 foot possible, mostly dry and cold, light powder as this system is dropping in from out of Canada with cold air dragged in behind it. Colorado will see snow, Utah will see snow also, some moderate to heavy. Southern California resort areas will also see some snow.
Sunday - The northwest US clears out for a sunny day and some fresh though not very heavy, snowfall. The southwest US, including California, Utah, and Colorado, continues to see snow, with especially heavy snow for southwest Colorado, and northern New Mexico including Taos Ski Valley.

We have the highest base elevation for any major ski resort in the Lake Tahoe area. Kirkwood also has the most snowfall this season for any resort in the Sierra. The mountain is often frequented by pro riders and skiers because the terrain is the most diverse of the local ski resorts. You can spend the day turning down a groomed run, shooting the half pipes, jibs, and rails in our terrain parks, bombing down a hair raising steep thick with untracked powder, or hucking yourself off a cornice at the peak. Whatever your preference, Kirkwood can accomodate it. Named one of the top 10 over all resorts in TransWorld Snow, Kirkwood is truly a Tahoe "must ski/ride.” Offering Lake Tahoe's highest base elevation for some of North America's deepest, driest snow. 2,300 acres of wide-open terrain promises something for everyone, from gentle groomed trails to hair-raising steeps and chutes. The resort was rated amongst the top 10 places to learn to ski by USA today and offers innovative First-Time Skier and Snowboarding programs on its wide, gentle slopes. The Children's Center makes skiing more convenient for families and fun for kids.
