Oct. 8 Snow Storm

Oct 8 Storm

Trifecta Storm System

We are getting a better solution for the upcoming storm we have been talking about for the last 2 weeks. It is hard to wait so long for these storms to arrive. In about a month from now, we will be locked in on this years repeating storms. At that time we will release our first predictions. These storms will be beyond model range–at least 3 weeks in advance.

Last year our first set of predictions were made November 8th for resorts Whistler, Crystal, Big Sky and Vail. It was a decent start with all resorts receiving snow: Whistler 7″, Crystal 8″, Big Sky 2″, and Vail 3″. A couple of cycles later, that small storm system would have its strongest return with 14″ at Whistler, 8″ Vail, and 10″ at Wolf Creek.

This upcoming storm is a large system with 3 waves–thus the moniker Trifecta. Below is what the models are telling us at the moment. Remember, this is still over 6 days out so the bullseye will move. For Tahoe, hopefully this holds together and will break the ice.

For Colorado:

Second Wave Colorado

Rockies Storm Total

 We will update this system in the next couple of days. I am looking forward to this kickoff storm and also the upcoming season. We will have a redesign of our site coming soon as well. If you have any questions, feel free to comment in the comment section or shoot me an email to Mike@FutureSnow.CO.
