Holiday Weekend Ski Forecast Feb 17, 2017

Okay, and snowboard forecast– if you’re into having your feet stuck to a board as you hurdle sideways down a steep hill!

This weekend, Presidents’ day will give many people one extra day of fun. And historically that means they will take to the hills in hoards.
With all of the recent warmth some people might choose to stay home and soak up the heat, but for those of you hitting the slopes– I have your forecast!

Snowpack

Despite our recent bout of warmth, really everywhere across the country, there is still plenty of snow just about everywhere you go!

But if snowpack isn’t enough to get you pressing glass for that first gondi, how about fresh snow?

Recent Snow

Recent storms have pummeled places in the Sierra, Cascades, and Northeastern U.S.
This means great corduroy in the early hours of the day. Fast, soft packed powder that’s just yours for the taking. And for those of you with a secret stash, you still might find something that hasn’t been skied out just yet!

Forecast

It looks like we aren’t going to see any more snow out East this weekend, but it’s a different story once you hit the Rockies!

Now, before I go giving away all of my secrets, I would like to warn you of the potential dangers of some of our new snow.
With our recent weather pattern there is a danger for unstable snowpack in a few locations– so always check conditions before venturing into the backcountry!
Likewise, if you are heading to the Sierra for some fresh turns– be careful, this is enough snow to make that drive a bit of a mess!

That being said, let’s talk snow!

We are looking at a Friday dusting for the Rockies. Snowfall totals around an inch or two at your favorite resorts.
Sunday is looking like our day of snow, so here are a few resorts that will pick up some decent snow with this system.

Heading out west, it seems the snow will never stop falling!
We see a round of snow every day in the Sierra, but Monday is looking to be the day of deep turns for the usual suspects!

Take Some Pictures

The headline says it all!
Take a few pictures, then share them with us on Twitter, Facebook, or our Website so we can share them with our viewers across the country!

If you are shredding alone, you can always use a selfie stick like I did in the article’s cover photo!
