We are out in Montana right now, and tomorrow we planned on skiing at Moonlight Basin. We have been watching the weather forecasts trying to find the best day to have our last day of skiing for the season. We knew some snow was coming, but not quite this much:
Today: Snow showers. High near 23. Calm wind becoming northeast around 5 mph. Chance of precipitation is 100%. Total daytime snow accumulation of 3 to 5 inches possible.
Tonight: Snow. The snow could be heavy at times. Low around 11. Northeast wind between 3 and 6 mph. Chance of precipitation is 100%. New snow accumulation of 8 to 12 inches possible.
Friday: Snow. The snow could be heavy at times. High near 19. North northeast wind between 3 and 11 mph. Chance of precipitation is 100%. New snow accumulation of 9 to 13 inches possible.
This means on the top part of the mountain we may see 25+ inches of fresh powder. To have this happen in early April? Heaven. There is so much snow on the way we just rented an SUV from Alamo at the airport. Sorry Elantra but we can’t take the chance you won’t make it to Moonlight up the mountain passes tomorrow.
A few years ago my friend John Wolff and I had a 36 inch + day at Bridger Bowl, and it really was like nothing I have ever experienced. I should stop talking about this before I jinx the forecast. Needless to say, the fat powder skis will be out, and we will be rooting for more and more snow!
I am hoping to look like this tomorrow at around 10 am:
