It’s about time. After about a dozen snowless days we got brushed by some snow last night that’s a precursor to more and more widespread snow starting this weekend.
As you’ll see in this morning’s Colorado Ski and Snow Report, last night’s brush with snow basically came in from the north and hugged I-70. Last night’s snow is essentially over, excepting a lingering snow shower or two at the highest elevations.
All we can do is hope for the best from two waves of snow expected to arrive Saturday afternoon and Monday, respectively. There’s some chance for snow through Wednesday, according to the National Weather Service, though it’s still too early to tell what to expect, exactly.
Our guess, and it’s a guess, are two decent waves that bring anywhere from 4-8 inches apiece, depending on the location. We hope we’re wrong, and that it’s more like 14-18 inches for each one. We shall see, and will update this report each morning accordingly, as well as the terrain report next week after all the snow is said and done for the time being.
