MOSTLY SUNNY FOR MOST OF THE WESTERN US AND WESTERN CANADA RESORT AREAS, THE REST OF THIS WEEK

Except for the northern Rocky Mountains and Cascades, we expect mostly sunny skies and milder temperatures for most of the west all week (light snow by mid-late week for southwest Canada, the Cascades, and extreme north Idaho). This is due to a strong high pressure ridge over the western US, giving the eastern US a return of winter. By Wednesday we see areas like Whistler, BC and southwest Canada, plus the Washington Cascades starting to see some higher mountain snows (minor snow level issues, then colder with snow top to bottom by Thursday/ Friday (11th/ 12th). Late week and weekend (12th on), we start to see Pacific storms (weakened) moving into the US west coast and affecting some of the western US, but still Tahoe and north, or north of Tahoe until next Wednesday (17th). The first storm moves in on Friday (12th), affecting the WA and OR Cascades, and Tahoe-Mammoth first, but this system may not make it far inland. More forecast details are coming on Thursday. CM

Winter into Spring - The El Nino SST pattern is strong, right now, and it looks like we will see a VERY strong El Nino continue for the rest of this winter. This set-up would usually cause heavier rain and snow across California (mainly southern and central, including Tahoe (Tahoe is already seeing a better season than they have had in years), including southern California ski resorts and the southwest US this winter. This has been (as predicted) a vast improvement for Tahoe-Mammoth. Southwest Colorado and northern New Mexico usually do well, including Taos Ski Valley, who had a great season in 2014-2015 with the weak El Nino(ish) anomaly. Aspen is in between, and we would say average snowfall should be expected at Aspen-Snowmass in 2015-2016, which would make for a good year. We will be monitoring the progress of this right here, stay tuned... CM

Wide variety of natural terrain which dwarfs other S. California resorts, more on par with the Tahoe resorts in N. California. Most acreage and vertical ft. in S. California, including widest variety of terrain from beginner to expert. Widely spaced trees provide excellent glade skiing along with the only true double black diamond runs found locally. Closest Area to L.A., only 14 miles N. of 210 Frwy in Upland, 30 miles E. of L.A.
