Powder Predictor

More unsettled weather over the weekend

Taste of Vail forecast for the foodies

Another Monday powder day graced the mountains of Colorado earlier this week, piling up more snow for the record books. We begin to see clouds roll in today ahead of a deepening trough that is carving south over California.

This storm system will likely affect the southern part of the state, giving the San Juans a good chance at big snowfall. The central and northern mountains will see some snow out of this system, but nothing like we saw this past Sunday into Monday.

On-mountain highs for the remainder of the week look seasonal, with highs in the upper 20's to low 30's. Southwest/south winds will keep the air milder for Thursday, April 7. Friday, April 8 will see cloudy skies and very light snow showers.

The Taste of Vail's Mountain Top Picnic is scheduled for Friday, April 8 at noon at the top of the Eagle Bahn Gondola. Always a spring tradition and local favorite, the Mountain Top picnic pairs good food, cocktails, and friends with one of the best views in Colorado.

This year it looks like it will be cloudy and chilly with gusty winds atop the mountain. For those of you with tickets already, dress accordingly. Expect southwest winds in the 10-20 mph range with gusts in the 30's. Temps for Friday look chilly, with highs only in the upper 20's.

Aspen/Snowmass could see a bit more snowfall Friday, April 8, as this system will be moving south-to-north. Saturday, April 9, we see more energy in our area, giving the northern and central mountains a better shot at additional snowfall.

Overall another great weekend in store for Colorado resorts. And for those of you who need tickets and/or information regarding the Taste of Vail, visit www.tasteofvail.com for more information.
