March Storm coming to Steamboat this weekend?

Just when we thought Spring conditions were here to stay it appears that we are in the path of a good storm. Substitute your sunglasses for goggles and I'll see you out there. After the pentathlon that is, I am doing 3 of the 5 legs on a team with a friend. Mountain Biking and Skate Skiing should be fun in a storm... but don't get me wrong I never complain about snow.

The Colorado Avalanche Center says: "Expect increasing clouds and mountain snow starting by Thursday evening. A trough of low pressure crosses the state on Friday and winds shift back to northwesterly on Saturday. The Northern and Central Mountains will be favored with this next system, but this looks to be a good snow producer for all mountain locations for the period extending from Thursday night into Saturday night. Northwest flow persists for the remainder of the weekend."

Powderchaser Steve from has issued a powder alert saying "Heavy snow will begin in northern Colorado on Friday with the best shot of a super deep day on Saturday."
