Good morning Kirkwood friends! My name is Sean and I'm psyched to be the final addition to the weather reporting team here at Kirkwood this season!
We received 1" of new snow overnight, currently in a Winter Weather Advisory, we are keeping our fingers crossed for more.
As reported by the National Weather Service, we are expecting snow before 10am, then 90% chance of mixed precipitation. High near 36. South southwest wind 18 to 21 mph, with gusts as high as 31 mph. New snow accumulation of 1 to 3 inches possible.
Long range forecast shows chance of a bit more accumulation. Keep doing that snow dance and hope for more #PowDays to come! -Sean
Good Evening my friends,
Glass’o’Red in hand winding down a good day on the mountain…
#StokeLevelBeginsToRise as the NWS forecast is looking much more aligned with a series of storms headed our way…
NWS has a Winter Weather Advisory for snow remains in effect for the Western Sierra Slope with snow levels down around 2500’-3000’ ft. Snow accumulations will range around 2”-4" at Lake level with up to 6" at the upper elevations of the Sierra…
The wet pattern continues as additional waves of precipitation arrive Thursday into Saturday. The main difference is that snow levels are expected to rise significantly by Thursday evening. The Sierra will likely see heavier precipitation with these additional waves but snow impacts will be limited to the higher elevations...around 6000’ ft and above.
Timber Creek will open this Saturday for the season with our Timber Creek Express (Chair 7) and Bunny (Chair 9) Snow has been skiing / riding quite well my friends and with the new snow forecast it will only get better…
Stay’nThirsty #StokeForPow :)
Buenos Dias my friends,
Cup’O’Joe in hand, Cold temps 14@the base with a cool 19@summit wind 17/20 gusts 27mph as we look to a wetter and more active weather pattern emerging over the next several days here…
Officially raising the #StokeLevel to 9.1 with a positive outlook for snow across the region… NWS forecast models are not as nearly robust as some of the #OverStokers I have been reading over the last few hours. Let’s go with the conservative NWS as the others seem to just ‘Go-Big’ and disappoint…
NWS read: A transition back to a more active weather pattern (precipitation-wise) begins later today as a series of more substantial systems begin to affect the region. Because of the cold air already in place, expect snow levels to be rather low when the first system arrives by this evening.
In Shasta County, snow levels could be in the 1000’-1500’ ft range, and 2500’-3000’ ft along the Sierra foothills. Precipitation is generally expected to be light in those locations. Depending on location, this cold air will be slow to mix out Wednesday night into Thursday, especially in the northern mountains. Strong warm- advection may be more successful in bringing rising snow levels in the northern Sierra by later Thursday.
Additional impulses arrive Thursday & Friday, possibly into Saturday. This will come in the form of a narrow plume of moisture so some locations may miss out on precipitation with those impulses. The Sierra will likely see heavier precipitation with those waves with high snow levels.
If we see 8” to 12” we'll be #Stoked for sure…
This weekend we will be opening Timber Creek chairs 7 & 9 for the season:)
