Mountain Weather for 11,000ft

CB Avalanche Center Weather

Date: 01/23/2019

Its another day and we have another hit of snow coming our way! A system is dropping down out of the northwest and it looks like it is moving far enough south that the mountains around Crested Butte are going to pick up a nice refresh with around 6″ for the snow favored areas from Kebler Pass to Schofield Pass between this afternoon and Thursday morning. Expect lesser amounts for areas near and to the east of Crested Butte. Winds are forecasted to be blowing hard enough out of the WNW to drift the new snow around.

Two more shortwave systems will pass to the north of the Crested Butte area on Thursday night and Friday night so we will see some cloud cover but as of now, not much in the way of accumulating snowfall.
