Short Range Forecast Discussion
This forecast is brought to you courtesy of Aspen-Snowmass Resort
Short Range Forecast Discussion - Updated for Saturday, April 25, 2015 This morning we see some accumulating snowfall even to 8,500 feet (Saturday morning), mostly above 9,500 feet, but the weak low (upper level weather disturbance) crosses to the south so we are not expecting much for Aspen and other northern resorts. Sunday and Monday look interesting, and we expect a significant storm for the front range and Summit/ Grand County areas, with moderate snow for Aspen and vicinity, plus southwest Colorado should see heavy snow. The front range and divide should see over 1 foot of snow. Later Monday and Tuesday clears out and warms up after low pressure exits. CM please see the detail in the long range forecast below.

Long Range Forecast Discussion:

7 day to 2 week+ forecast (since 1998) - 27 April to 05 May, 2015 - Pacific Northwest/ Northern California/ UTAH/ COLORADO/ northern New Mexico: Late April and into early May continues fairly busy (frequent snow) storm-wise, with more storms across the western US, including for the Pacific Northwest and northern Rocky Mountains. For Utah-Colorado-northern New Mexico, we expect a chance for snow late next week (30th April-early May) as low pressure moves into the western US, delivering snow, but mostly to areas above 9,000 feet most likely. After early May we see more stable conditions and more dominant high pressure ridging aloft, with warming and mostly sunny skies and the usual afternoon thunderstorm activity. Tahoe-Mammoth, the northern/ central Sierra Nevada Mountains and the Cascades of WA/ OR we could see frequent snowfall, some significant, later next Monday and the whole week, into early May. We are hoping for some snow pack. CM

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.
