Short Range Forecast Discussion
This forecast is brought to you courtesy of Aspen-Snowmass Resort
Short Range Forecast Discussion - Updated for Monday, May 04, 2015 We expect an upswing in mainly late day thunderstorms and showers today as some upper level pockets of instability help trigger them (due to a low pressure circulation across the southwest US), then low pressure across the northwest US causes a more moist southwest flow aloft into the area for increased moisture on Tuesday. The trend of an active shower and thunderstorm pattern continues through Wednesday, then tapers off late week. We expect to see some snow under 10,000 feet (and to 8,500 feet, even some snow in the town of Aspen) this weekend as an organized Gulf of Alaska storm pushes through from the west (more details are coming). CM please see the detail in the long range forecast below. CM

Long Range Forecast Discussion:

7 day to 2 week+ forecast (since 1998) - 04 to 14 May, 2015 - Pacific Northwest/ Northern California/ UTAH/ COLORADO/ northern New Mexico: All this week (4th - 8th) looks unsettled across the Pacific Northwest and northern Rocky Mountains, with higher mountain snow and valley rains. Some much needed late season snow pack will develop. Cooler than average temperatures are also expected. For Tahoe through Mammoth we expect unsettled conditions to dominate all week, with winds, cooler than average temperatures, and some rain/ higher mountain snow. For Utah-Colorado-northern New Mexico, we expect an upswing in thunderstorms and showers, mostly of the daytime heating triggered variety, with some sunshine through the day, becoming less sunny in the afternoon/ evening. By May 8-15 the west in general is expected to be busy with low pressure systems, unsettled weather, wind, cooler than average temperatures, and rain/ snow, some to unusually low levels as some storms may close off and drift south, carrying unusually cold air with them (mainly along the west coast, California). We will be watching. CM

Steamboat is actually a complete mountain range: Mount Werner, Sunshine Peak, Storm Peak, Thunderhead Peak, Pioneer Ridge® and Christie Peak. 2,965 acres (1200 hectares) of permitted terrain offer a diversity of trails for all levels of ability. Mavericks Superpipe is a freerider's dream. Mavericks is 500 feet long, 56-feet wide, has 18 foot walls, and a 22 foot radius. Steamboat's SoBe terrain park adjacent to Mavericks, features an outdoor sound system, a variety of rails; kinked, sliders, rainbows, "S", mailboxes, double barrel, and Mini-Mav, a miniature version of the superpipe with five-foot walls, perfect for novice riders. Gladed areas of Pioneer Ridge, Sunshine and Storm Peak are Steamboat's particular claim to fame, with Champagne Powder® snow in the trees for the most avid powder hounds.
