Models have come in stronger with the Sierra storm this weekend and early next week with 3-5 feet likely for mid elevations by Monday. 5-7 feet may fall at the summits! It’s a warm storm initially for California that turns to high-quality late Saturday-Tuesday. The North Cascades and BC score a foot or more Friday/Saturday. The Rockies look good Sunday-Tuesday with the highest amounts in the south-central mountains of Colorado, Wasatch of Utah, Tetons, and Sawtooths of Idaho.

When it comes to skiing, safety and good manners go together like skis and bindings. You can’t really have one, without the other. But here’s the catch. Good manners and on-mountain safety often don’t come intuitively to anyone.Especially with children (of all ages), safety needs to be taught.
