Snow on the ground in Vail Sunday; colder temps and more accumulation expected

Late week barage still on track

Five inches new at the Beav' this morning, with Vail adding four to its total.

Aspen/Snowmass snubbed again, as only three inches were reported overnight Friday into Saturday.

More snow is in the forecast for today (Sunday, Jan. 9) as good moisture, cold temps and decent winds will precede heavier snowfall this evening. A cold front will move through our area this evening and tonight, bringing heavier bands of snow to the northern and central mountains of Colorado.

Aspen/Snowmass should see better snowfall totals for Monday, Jan. 10, as this front moves south. Temps will drop with the passing of the cold front, leaving Monday's on-mountain highs in the teens and single digits. Winds will be brisk out of the north/northwest in the 10-20 mph range.

Expect snow totals for Aspen/Snowmass in the 4-8 range for Monday, with Vail and Beaver Creek expecting 5-10 inches for Monday.

A good week ahead as the jet stream begins to shift to a more west-to-east flow, bringing systems inland with it. As of now, models show that Jan. 13-18 could shape up to be a great five days for the mountains of Colorado, Utah, and Wyoming.

Just in time for the Talons Challenge at Beaver Creek next weekend. For now, get on the hill and keep it posted here at Real Vail and Real Aspen as Santa brought yours truly a new GoPro helmet cam. Should be fun!
