Colorado Powder Forecast: A Saturday Present

Colorado Powder Forecast: A Saturday Present

Colorado Powder Forecast for week of Jan. 20


  • Two great storms already this week
  • Saturday will be a great powder day
  • Clean-up on Sunday morning will be fun, too

The best powder skiing exists when snow falls on back-to-back days. This keeps the base soft and allows the new snow to feel bottomless even if it's "only" another 10 inches.

Well, if that's the best scenario for skiing powder, we're in it to win it this week. Fresh on the heals of Monday nights huge dump and Tuesday morning's powder day, Wednesday's storm saw 1-2"/hr snowfall rates for much of the day at Steamboat, Vail, and other locations along I-70 and down through Aspen, Crested Butte, and Silverton. Hmmm…I just named almost every region of the state! Yes, it was good out there on hump day.

After a big morning on Thursday with fresh powder and blue skies, all anticipation will turn toward Saturday when another storm – much like the one that dumped on CO on Wednesday – will barrel in from the northwest.

It looks like snow will fall from about sunrise to sunset on Saturday, so make sure to hit it up as it could be the last great powder day for about a week. All the stormy details (how much snow and where it will fall) are always available at www.ColoradoPowderForecast.com.
