OPENSNOW: Two storms will bring powder to the west.
It feels good to wake up to some promising news in the snow forecast. Our friend Joel Gratz is calling for two strong storms this week and states, "The western US is back aboard the storm train!" This weekend both Vail and Beaver Creek enjoyed "free refills" with over a foot of fresh champagne powder falling for most of Saturday. If you weren't able to get out there this past weekend (like me), don't worry, because we will see another storm in the Rockies later this week.
Joel predicts the second storm will move from the Pacific Northwest, down the spine of the Rockies and through Colorado and New Mexico. No need to get your Valentine flowers this year, fresh powder is on its way!
