MOSTLY SUNNY FOR MOST OF THE WESTERN US AND WESTERN CANADA RESORT AREAS, ALL 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. 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. 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

The closest major family resort to the Bay Area and Sacramento, Sierra-at-Tahoe is Lake Tahoe's best-kept secret. The resort's North facing location keeps the snow in great condition for days and with a variety of terrain to choose from the entire family or group of friends can find something to cater toward their ability. Sierra is one of the only resorts that offers beginner, intermediate and advanced terrain all accessible from the summit lift, allowing groups to ride together while still enjoying the runs they want to hit. Five backcountry gates keep expert skiers entertained for hours and give breathtaking views of Lake Tahoe along with quite, uncrowded lines you can't find at other resorts. With new terrain park features, access to backcountry terrain, and new adventure parks for kids, Sierra-at-Tahoe Resort has something to offer everyone. Sierra-at-Tahoe is Northern California's home away from home. At this resort, guests are greeted by name and treated like family. Located on Highway 50, Sierra is the closest major snowsports resort to San Francisco and Sacramento, yet it's just a stone's throw away from the glitz of South Lake Tahoe and a multitude of hotel and casino lodging options. Convenience, value and great service are just a few of the words that summarize Sierra. Another asset is the location of its slopes, which are wind-protected and cradle the fresh powder for days. Skiers and riders of all ability levels can easily find their niche here, whether it's exploring the never-ending tree skiing, cruising down a 2.5 mile beginner run from the summit or hucking themselves off a tabletop in one of the many terrain parks and pipes scattered throughout the mountain.
