While last week’s upslope event favored the Front Range, Bear Mountain picked up another 8 inches of new snow between Saturday and Sunday. High winds on Sunday blew this snow around, drifting 1-2 feet in places with plenty of soft riding conditions.

Thursday and Friday look to be beautiful spring days on the mountain. With highs near and above 40, and calm conditions, get ready to break out your Hawaiian shirts and sunscreen!

Winds will pick up over the weekend, bringing chances of snow Saturday, Sunday, and into Monday. Bear Mountain is expecting 3-6 inches from this system.

Highs for the weekend look to be in the mid 30s, with stiff westerly winds gusting up to 25mph on Saturday afternoon.

Snow, sun, or stars, we are finding every week packed with fun:
