Big Storm #1 of 3 is Here

The outlook for this storm has changed little since I advertised it here a few days ago. This early Saturday morning, mountain wind gusts are already at 50mph, even 80 mph over Monarch Pass! Light snow today turns to a big dump this evening as the cold front passes. Snow will continue on Sunday under very cold temperatures, with maybe 2 feet of new snow accumulation expected by Sunday evening. Grooming late Sunday may help prepare the tracks for the next storm, but the tracks won't last more than 24 hours. There will be a diminishing Sunday night into Monday morning before the next storm slams us again Monday Night-Tuesday. Then a third storm will bring more snowfall later in the workweek.  
We needed more snowfall, but be careful what you wish for! The weather situation will be rapidly evolving. Stay abreast of the latest here
