Powder Predictor

Spring once again on tap, then more snow

Last week for Beaver Creek

Another round of heavier than expected snow over the weekend has added more snow to the already astounding totals. Beaver Creek will see only six more days as the resort is scheduled to close Sunday, April 17. Vail's closing day nears as well with closing day on Sunday, April 24.

Spring weather for early week before more unsettled weather moves in from the northwest. On mountain temps for Tuesday, April 12, will be great; expect highs to reach into the 30's with radiant heat making it feel more like 45 degrees. South-facing aspects will be great as the sun will soften most everything on the hill.

Overnight lows in the 20's will make a grooming report necessary for those of you who get up with the lifties. Winds will be light and variable, making it perfect for those of you who like to grill slopeside.

Wednesday will be colder and cloudy as a quick system moves past to our north with little snowfall expected.

Our next shot of decent accumulation comes late Thursday through Friday morning. We will watch and see.

Much the same for Aspen/Snowmass; with the exception of any snow overnight Tuesday, no snow expected in the Roaring Fork Valley until Thursday/Friday. For now, grab the sunscreen and some burgers and enjoy John Denver's Colorado.
