Short Range Forecast Discussion
This free forecast is brought to you courtesy of Aspen-Snowmass Resort
Short Range Forecast Discussion - Updated for Tuesday, March 03, 2015 Today we see northern origin low pressure pushing the low out west, toward the east, for cold air advection and a more favorable west and northwest wind flow across the mountains later today, after some sun breaks and higher altitude based clouds today. Heavier snow hits Vail Pass and eastward this afternoon through tonight. On a colder and windy Wednesday, we see low pressure exit eastward with some lingering and light snow, then sunshine. High pressure ridging sits across the area and to the west Thursday through this weekend with a weak weather disturbance and light snow showers (north, Aspen-Snowmass) Thursday, then a more defined, stronger low pressure system drops in with light to moderate snow this coming weekend (again, across the north).

Long Range Forecast Discussion:

7 day to 2 week+ forecast (since 1998) - 07 to 17 March, 2015 - COLORADO: Saturday/ Sunday (7-8th) we expect another low pressure system to drop into Colorado from out of the northwest, with a moderate shot of snowfall across northern Colorado, lighter for southwest Colorado. After a short few-days break (sun and cool-milder temperatures) next week under upper-level high pressure ridging, a Pacific storm moves in around/ after the 11th, with significant snowfall possible. WESTERN US: Saturday and Sunday (7-8th) we expect light to moderate snow for the northern Rocky Mountains, north Idaho/ Montana/ Wyoming, but dry for the rest of the western US, including Tahoe-Mammoth and the WA/ OR Cascade Mountains, and into southwest Canada. Following this, by the 10th/ 11th, a Pacific storm moves into the western US, with mountain snow and valley rain.

Wolf Creek operates on 1,600 acres spread along a high alpine ridge in the Rio Grande National Forest, under a U.S. Forest Service permit and administration. The uniqueness of Wolf Creek lies in the 1,000 acres between Horseshoe Bowl and the Water Fall area, which is called the Alberta Lift area. This wilderness provides everything from challenging double black diamond runs of the Knife Ridge chutes to a variety of intermediate terrain where navigation skills are called into action. Groomed runs are also a part of the scheme complimenting the excitement and challenge of the Alberta Lift area. The traditional trails are the main core of Wolf Creek with 6 lifts servicing 500 acres of terrain all leading into the base area facilities. Wolf Creek Ski Area is one of Colorado's oldest and finest ski resorts that receives an average annual snowfall of 465 natural inches, the most snow in Colorado! Their trademark is friendly employees and abundant light powder. Wolf Creek is a high alpine ski resort, 10,300 ft at the base and 11,900 ft at the summit with 1,600 skiable acres. Wolf Creek offers a better ski experience at a very affordable price.
