POWDER ALERT

POWDER ALERT

THIS POWDER ALERT IS FOR TUESDAY & WEDNESDAY (February 28th & March 1st)

Lots of Cold Powder Ahead!

The past few days have been chilly in the mountains with sticking snow all the way down into the hills around the Gorge and Willamette Valley.  When that happens the quality of the snow is excellent due to the colder/drier air over the mountains.  Yes, that means we get nice powder instead of the wetter/heavy usual snow!  Monday the top of Upper Bowl only made it into the lower 20s.  This same cold airmass remains over the Pacific Northwest most of the upcoming week so LOTS of snow is on the way.  The heaviest snow arrives early this Tuesday morning and then the snowfall tapers off by the time lifts start turning this afternoon.  

TOTAL SNOW BY 5 PM TUESDAY:

Lower Bowl (Base Area): 8"

Upper Bowl:  12"

Temps:  22-27 deg. Tuesday, 25-29 deg. Wednesday

Long Range:  All models point to another chilly start to a winter month, like we have seen in December, January, & February.  Early March will feel more like February which of course is great for skiing.  I wouldn't be surprised if we don't see any real spring-like skiing until close to Spring Break (last week of March).  This winter just keeps on giving...enjoy.  Check out our forecast for the next 7 days up on Mt. Hood:
