Monday Afternoon Update– A Little More Snow With Periodic Pass Closures

1/2/23 Monday 1 pm

Between snow removal and storm monitoring, I am wiped out so I am going to be pretty brief.

As expected the snow has picked back up at the ski areas this afternoon. According to the models, the snow should become widespread throughout the forecast area later this afternoon and evening, 1 to 4 inches are possible by late tomorrow morning with a few upside surprises likely. The models are favoring the higher elevations as well as the western portions of the forecast area. Rico to Trout Lake, Cortez and Dolores may see some action out of this. That being said, leftovers are difficult to forecast so let’s just leave it as a “few upside surprises are possible”.

Speaking of Rico and Trout Lake, expect periodic closures for mitigation around Trout Lake and Lizard Head this afternoon. Remember, clean-up is a lengthy process and all passes could be subject to closure at any time. I do my best to pass on information as I get it, but be prepared for anything if you are planning on traveling over the passes today and tomorrow.

My next Update will be on Tuesday. Thanks for following and supporting the site!
