The first powder day in a while, maybe...
Keep watching the on-mountain cameras. The storm rolling in from the Pacific could bring serious snow to the mountains. As you can see above, it's already hitting Durango.
The town of Breckenridge is expecting 6 to 8 inches.
Pagosa Springs, just below Wolf Creek, expects 5 to 12 inches. If the storm really hits, it could be double that at the ski area. Vail expects similar amounts of snow.
Most areas have at least an 80 percent chance of snow today, followed by more snow daily into Saturday. Tomorrow could be a very good day to head to the mountains (fresh snow, no crowd) but if you can't make it, the snow should be fantastic this weekend if all the promised storms roll through.
