Now that we are officially in April, it is the last few weekends to enjoy some time on the slopes. There will not be any weather-related traffic concerns this weekend.

A calm weather pattern with high pressure in place will lead to sunshine and warm temperatures this weekend. Many lower elevation ski areas will reach the 40s and 50s this weekend. Make sure to dress appropriately with several light layers.

Winds will be breezy all weekend, gusting about 20 mph Friday and Saturday. Sunday wind gusts may top out at 30 mph.

You will likely need to add or remove layers when you're on the lift, actively skiing/snowboarding, or getting a snack. Also, be sure to apply sunscreen during the day.
