Snow out West next weekend?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

I'm trying to piece together a last minute trip out west (probably the 7th to 11th of January).  The El Niño patterns don't look promising.  Does anyone have a recommendation as to where to head out to for some good snow next weekend?  We were planning on Jackson Hole but the weather doesn't look great.

Where in the west have you been?  Do you have a multi-resort pass like the MCP?

Taos looks promising.

It is hard to predict things, especially the future...

It's not like they are supposed to get rain. The temps should be good. If you want to get fresh snow, you need to have your own private jet. I wouldn't trust any forecast more than 24 hours out myself. Or even then. We've gotten a foot when the night before they said 2-3 inches and vice versa.

I've been to pretty much everywhere in Tahoe, Jackson Hole, Whistler, Deer Valley/Alta, Aspen/Snowmass/Highlands, Vail, and Breck.  I currently don't have a pass anywhere (dropped my Sugarloaf pass a few years back), as the past few years I've just been doing one trip out west per year due to time constraints.

Agreed.  Taos is the only place I've found thus far that has a good extended forecast.

You might check out the ongoing Taos thread if you haven't found it yet.  For links to all the ongoing regional/resort threads, go to Resorts, Conditions & Travel using the Forums drop down from the menu bar or the Forums Nav (top or just above the Reply area).

Tahoe or mammoth.. Taos looks good too and you could throw in wolf creek or silverton

You should have been here last weekend at Sun Peaks. They predicted 5-10cm but it started snowing Saturday afternoon and then snowed all night and we got 32cm. Most turns were mid shin with the light powder snow welling up above the knees.:D
