If you're looking for fresh snow, Colorado will be the place to be late in the weekend through Monday. The newest storm is taking shape over the Pacific Ocean just off the coast of British Columbia and will drop in from the northwest. When storms come from this direction, it generally means two things:
Snow could start as early as Saturday night, but anything that comes this early will just be a bonus. By Sunday afternoon and Sunday night, snow should come down at a decent clip with the highest totals favoring Vail and Breckenridge, though Beaver Creek, Keystone, and A-Basin will also get in on the action.
If things go according to plan (the famous last words of a weatherman), Sunday afternoon and Monday morning could be the best times to ski powder. If you head out to the slopes to investigate on Monday, dress warm! Temperatures may not get above 0F at the summit. It is January and you are in the Rockies, so it's the price to pay for good snow!
By Tuesday, the snow will end and temperatures will warm up a bit, but the real warm-up won't happen until Wednesday. Another storm may bring powder from Thursday into Friday, but we'll cross that bridge during my next update on Monday.
If you're in Tahoe and looking for fresh snow, just wait about a week (next Thursday). Until then, enjoy mostly sunny skies, relatively warm weather, and some soft snow on the north-facing slopes.
