THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE IN GRAND JUNCTION HAS ISSUED A
WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY FOR SNOW AND BLOWING SNOW...WHICH IS IN
EFFECT FROM 9 AM TUESDAY TO NOON MST WEDNESDAY.

* TIMING...SNOW AND BLOWING SNOW WILL PICK UP IN COVERAGE AND
  INTENSITY THIS MORNING BEFORE TAPERING OFF THIS EVENING. SNOW
  WILL BEGIN AGAIN ON TUESDAY MORNING AND CONTINUE THROUGH
  WEDNESDAY MORNING.

* SNOW ACCUMULATION...AN ADDITIONAL 2 TO 4 INCHES TODAY...THEN 5
  TO 10 INCHES OF ADDITIONAL SNOW ON TUESDAY INTO WEDNESDAY.

* WINDS...WEST 15 TO 25 MPH WITH GUSTS UP TO 40 MPH.

* IMPACTS...TRAVEL WILL BE CHALLENGING DUE TO POOR VISIBILITY IN
  SNOW...FOG...AND BLOWING SNOW. INCLEMENT WINTER WEATHER
  CONDITIONS WILL IMPACT VAIL AND RABBIT EARS PASSES.

 

The weather from this point typically stays plenty cold; especially on the mountain, its winter.  Keep in mind that the weather will do whatever it wants.  Try not to get to caught up in any stats for more than general info.  this will go far to solidify a good base.  

 

Here's the link and geo-placement that I like http://forecast.weather.gov/MapClick.php?lat=40.46157664398329&lon=-106.74957286566496#.VHNdltLF98H

I assume Steamboat skiers :yahoo:when they hear OpenSnow or other weather forecasters use the expression "Northwest Flow."

that and "oragraphic"  ;)

 

I suspect that is part of what is in play today.  Its just puking...... they just cleaned off the platform since it hit the top which is 23" (leave it to steamboat to not make the stake 24" or higher) 

 

The official report from the resort was 20" at the summit about an hour ago. 

 

EDIT: 20 not 24, although it looks like the total Sat- today was about 26-27"
