Wyoming Mountain Snows To Kick Off Skiing Season

The first major snowstorm for the Wyoming Mountains looks set to hit the region in the next 84 hours if the NAM model proves correct.

Amounts higher than 18 inches of snow appear possible in the north central mountains of Wyoming, with a good 8-12 inches to be found in more southeastern portions of the state. Western Nebraska should get in on the action with as much as 10 inches of snow hitting some areas.

The snow looks to be the skiing season's first, and is sure to attract skiers from all over the country for the first hit on fresh snow. However, the larger ski resorts are likely to view this as a drop in the bucket- many mountains require feet on feet of snow to permit skiing.
