I was just looking at the Vail mid mountain cam. Snowing like crazy at just before noon MST, and very cold. Then I take a look at Snowmass webcam, and it is partly overcast, with no snow coming down. Although, they did report 2" new the past 24 hrs.
Weather is a fickle thing, especially when you are dealing with big topo items, like for instance, 14,000' peaks and such.
It does sound a bit encouraging with a possibility of weather pattern shift going into MLK weekend. The cold weather we are currently experiencing in WA is nice, and that forecasted cool mosit air on its way from AK will be very welcome when it arrives on Saturday night/Sunday morning. I'm not going to wax the big boards just yet. (Don't want to jinx anything.) But it is encouraging. I won't total my snowfall, until after it hits the slopes though.
