After a few days of warm rainy weather, which melted nine inches of snow from the Snowbowl summit, a change seems to be in the offing:

And there's supposed to be a pretty significant snow event coming in the next 72 hours:

A POWERFUL STORM SYSTEM WILL MOVE ONSHORE SUNDAY NIGHT...SPREADING
SNOW INTO WESTERN WYOMING BY LATE MONDAY MORNING. THE SNOW
IS EXPECTED TO CONTINUE THROUGH MONDAY NIGHT...POSSIBLY HEAVY AT
TIMES. SIGNIFICANT ACCUMULATIONS FROM THIS STORM ARE LIKELY. STAY
TUNED FOR THE LATEST INFORMATION ABOUT THE UPCOMING WINTER STORMS.

Yeah, those storms always seem to drop a pittance us on their way to Jackson.

We did get some snow tonight in town, and the mountain has been getting a little, like 3" in the past couple of days, but hopefully the base will be building steady from here on out.

Snowbowl's summit has increased 15 inches in snow depth since Saturday night.

There's more snow up there now than they opened with last year.

VA,
Here in Boise the weather is definetly different then in the past few years.
Typically, the valley is under an inversion this time of year, however, this year we are warm and have quite a bit of precipitation. If only it would cool down a bit. Bogus has a mere total of 13" as of yet, but more snow is possible if only it would freeze!

Snowbowl picked up an inch this afternoon after loosing two to the annoying sunshine which is the bane of snowpack's existence.

I feel your pain VA.
We have gotten nearly a foot of snow this year 4 inches in early October, then another 6-8 inches(depending on where you are in our area). Both times the snow was followed with warm rain.
Imagine my sadness when this melted away.

Here's my latest updated forecast for Snowbowl's summit, and though it predicts 40 degrees and raining today, it is currently 35 at the summit, and .8 of an inch of snow has accumulated. The rest of the week is looking very good for opening on Friday as scheduled and with a bounty of fluff, up top at least. Hopefully it will cover the bottom half of the mountain too.:

Holy moly Batman, the forecast just keeps getting better! When I saw the news tonight, I got so happy I started to dance!

Well, this morning the predictions are considerably less favorable than last night, but there should be at least a few inches coming.

VA,
The snow is supposed to fly tonight here in SW Idaho (at least in the mountains), it should be heading your way. The only area open in this "nape of the woods, neck of the way" (tribute to Chevy Chase!), is Tamarack and only the upper mountain is available. My son and I are going to check it out Sunday the 26th. Hopefully it won't be too sketchy!

All has been working fairly well to the good of the Bowl, and the trend seems to be continuing, perfect snowmaking weather until the next storm cycle comes in the night before the Bowl re-opens on friday. (The Bowl only operates Fri-Sat this time of year in the best of years. 39 inches up top.
