Questions about weekend weather? When will it snow next? How much? Jump in to LiveChat Thursday (Nov. 24) at 3:00pm MST on the Snow.com Facebook page.
The Snow.com family is now fully open, with Beaver Creek officially starting the season on Wednesday. So what's in store, snow-wise, over the next week? Well, I've got some good news for some and less than stellar news for others.
The good news is that the sunshine will be plentiful and the temperatures comfortable. If you like to work on your tan (wear sunscreen!), rip groomers, or hit the park, the next week will be perfect for you to find your early-season form.
The less than stellar news is that fresh snow will be hard to find over the next week, with most storms heading well north of Tahoe and Colorado. However, it is only Thanksgiving, and the "snow switch" can often turn on full bore in the weeks following Turkey Day. And in fact, the long-range weather forecast does show some hits of Colorado returning to a stormier pattern as we head into the first weekend in December.
Enjoy your time on the hill, and see you for LIVE CHAT each Thursday at 3:00pm.
