From the man himself (Joel Gratz): “All aboard the pow train”
As suspected, storm cycle #2 is looking strong! The details are still blurry, but rest assured the pow will arrive from Friday through Sunday. 8 inches? 12 inches? 16 inches? The YPGP will find out and report back.
Winter is kicking back into gear in Colorado by way of a super cold system that started Monday night and should last through Wednesday morning. Many resorts have already seen 5-6 inches, and a second wave is revving up now. From our friends at OpenSnow:
The second phase of the storm will bring a period of heavy snow from midday Tuesday through Wednesday morning, with the heaviest snow likely falling between about 4pm Tuesday and 5am Wednesday. This snow will hit all mountains, though the northern, central, and east-of-the-divide mountains should be favored.
Total accumulations on Tuesday night should average out to the 4-8 inch range, but I would not be surprised to see 10+ inches from Aspen north to I-70 and just east of the northern continental divide around Eldora and Rocky Mountain National Park.
Additionally – we have more low pressure to look forward to during the weekend of 12/9. No fine details quite yet, but the next cycle appears to have more moisture and its path will focus on the Northern/Central mountains. Bulls eye! Time to starting hunting again.
