April skiing in Winter Park ColoradoSnow in April in Winter Park, Colorado

The snow just keeps on coming here in Winter Park.  In the last three days we have had almost ten inches of snow and there is more predicted for the next three days with this coming Tuesday looking like we will get hit pretty hard.

Here is the snow report for today the 4th day of April, 2010:

New Winter Park Resort Snow (In Inches)
24 hrs 48 hrs 72 hrs Season
2″ 3.5″ 9.5″ 251.

There are only two weeks left for this ski season and now is the time to get out and make some turns.  Check out the snow forecast at snow forecast.com and see all the snow we should be getting in these next two weeks.  This week Thursday and Friday should be spectacular days for some spring skiing.  With highs in the 40’s it will be a light jacket day with plenty of sunscreen needed.  Not a better way to spend a day on the slopes and an afternoon on the deck having a beer.

High pressure ridging aloft holds through next Thursday, weakening on Friday as a major storm brews out west. Another unsettled pattern which is kicked off by this system starts next Saturday (10th), and may continue off and on through the 16th/ 17th, maybe beyond, in the form of cut-off low pressure systems possibly. Pacific storms (with snow) should move through with good frequency into the last half of April.  Plan now to get the snow that these storms are going to dump

Come celebrate spring in the Rocky Mountains.  Winter Park Lodging Company is offering a fourth night free special and the best lift ticket deals around.  April is the best time to ski in Colorado so don’t miss out.  Head on up and spend a few dys on the slopes under the blue, blue Colorado skies.
