After a brief lull to mark the start of spring, Old Man Winter is storming back into the house with a two-part storm that should drop at least six inches of new snow at Copper Mountain just in time for the weekend.
A winter weather advisory from the National Weather Service suggests anywhere from three to eight inches by Thursday morning, with as much as a foot of snow in some of the most favored spots. Snow will taper off Thursday but pick up again Thursday night, with another round of decent accumulation expected by Friday morning and light snow continuing throughout the day.
If you're looking for sunshine, Saturday is your best bet as a short-lived area of high pressure crosses the Rockies, giving way to get another round of snow by Sunday. More typically variable weather is expected throughout next week, as storm waves alternate with a few days of calm weather.
Copper has already hit 300 inches of snowfall for the season, with 39 inches so far in March. The mid-mountain base depth is 72 inches, ensuring great coverage right on through the end of the season in late April. Get the full snow and trail report here.
