"Roller-coaster" is the word this week.
After two spring-like days when temperatures reached the fifties at the base, we are returning to more seasonable temperatures late tonight. We are likely to see some rain showers beginning this afternoon but that will be turning over to snow later tonight and we could see a few inches before morning. Thus, tomorrow we may see some variable conditions.
With two nights of grooming and some snow, the groomed trails will be in great shape on Saturday. The woods and natural trails might be firm since it looks like temperatures will stay below freezing on most of the mountain. But we are likely to see some sun. And if we don't get too much rain later tonight and it ends with snow and then we get the forecasted flurries tomorrow, the woods and natural trails might be in good shape, too.
Temperatures will be rising again on Sunday and everything will soften up. Warm temperatures are expected to remain through next weekend.
All in all, while we won't have some of the epic conditions we have enjoyed the past two weeks, skiing and riding will be worth the journey this weekend, so plan on coming out.
