Spring snow storm takes aim at Utah and Colorado

According to Opensnow.com, Utah resorts, specifically the Cottonwood resorts of Alta, Snowbird, Solitude and Brighton, are in the midst of a big spring snowfall. Snowbird has already received 13 inches in the past 48 hours and could receive a bit more as the snow tapers off and heads to east to Colorado.

The Colorado snow forecast is a bit trickier due to wind shifts, but forecaster Joel Gratz thinks that the southern and eastern mountains should make out best. Some models are showing six to 12 inches for the central and northern mountains (Aspen, Crested Butte, Steamboat, Vail and Beaver Creek), though, however, Gratz isn’t confident in this forecast due to oncoming winds.  Telluride already received six to eight inches and another four to eight could fall tonight. Vail Pass is expected to see six inches fall today and another four to six tonight.

More snow should hit Colorado Thursday night through Saturday night. The European model is calling for six to 10 inches from this next storm.
