Snow Report for Thursday, March 6th
65" Mid Mountain / 98" Upper Mountain
Packed Powder / Machine Groomed
Day after day the powder at Big Sky remains fresh, untracked and deep. It might be because Lone Mountain has received snow 7 days straight, and 25 of the last 28 days. The only thing that could make these conditions better is more snow, which is in the forecast for today, tomorrow and throughout the week. The seven day storm total is at 20 inches, and by the way, the seven day storm total has not been below 12 inches since January 30th!
Another beautiful spring day is expected. It will be partly cloudy throughout the day, with light snow falling at times. The upper mountain is the place to find the deepest snow from overnight, so head to Headwaters and Lone Peak Tram! The high will be near 36° and a low tonight near 16°. Winds will blow at 15 to 30 mph today. The upper mountain base is at 98 inches and the lower mountain base is at 65 inches.
