Snow in forecast for Vail, other Colorado mountains
Joel Gratz, of OpenSnow.com, is forecasting some snow Saturday through Thursday, mainly hitting the southern mountains of Colorado possibly Sunday and again Tuesday.
Each storm is expected to drop about 6-12 inches at resorts in the southern part of the state, including Wolf Creek, Purgatory and Telluride.
Central mountains such as Crested Butte, Aspen and Sunlight are expected to get half of what the southern mountains get, and the northern mountains — which include Vail, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge and Keystone — will see light snow with the best chance of deeper accumulations around Wednesday, according to Gratz.
