Spring is right around the corner, but skiers and riders working toward their 100-day pin still have plenty of time — and snow — to get their days in.
Last weekend’s storm left nearly two feet of fresh powder on the mountains, with the biggest powder day happening Saturday.
According to the National Weather Service, Tuesday has the best chance for some sun during the day and then rain and/or snow showers may fall at night. Wednesday will be wet and snowy, with rain and snow showers possible during the day and night. Thursday shows the best chance for snow across all four mountains.
An OpenSnow forecast shows that in the next one to five days, Aspen Highlands will get 10 inches of fresh snow, Aspen Mountain will get eight inches, Snowmass will get nine inches and Buttermilk will get five.
“This storm will be similar to the last storm with a lot of moisture, initially warm air and a high rain/snow line, and then we’ll see an extended period of snow showers and colder temperatures,” OpenSnow founding meteorologist Joel Gratz wrote in his Daily Snow forecast.
