December Brings Holiday Snow to the West

December Brings Holiday Snow to the West

posted: 01/01/2000

Boulder, CO Dec. 2--As the holiday season approaches, many eager skiers are singing the familiar words to the Christmas tune, "Let It Snow." Hopes are running high that Mother Nature will bring along some fresh powder...finally. In some areas of North America, these prayers are being answered.

In the Pacific Northwest, where it seems to snow everyday, a storm has dropped 8-inches on Wednesday at Mt. Baker, WA, and 16-inches in the past 24 hours. Timberline Ski Area, OR, reported 12-inches of new snow, 27-inches in the past 24-hours, and expects more today. Stevens Pass, WA has received 16-inches and Lake Louise Ski Area, Canada reported 3-5 inches. This system is expected to continue to move over the region and dump snow at the 2,000-foot level all day.

In California, the northern Sierras received the brunt of a storm that moved in off the Pacific and dumped snow at some areas near Lake Tahoe. Alpine Meadows Ski Area reported a whopping 12-17 inches as of Wednesday afternoon, while next door, Squaw Valley reported a fresh 8-10 inches at mid-mountain. Elsewhere in California, Sugar Bowl received 6-10 inches, Mammoth Mountain reported 1-3, and Kirkwood received 4-6 inches.

Moving east, the Wasatch Mountain Range in Utah has been blessed with 6-12 inches of new snow. This storm could bring significant snow to the Northern and Central Rockies by late Thurs. and Fri.

SkiNet will continue to track these storms, so check back for updates.
