Colorado ski country saw snow showers this week on Wednesday and Thursday. Conditions look much drier headed into this weekend.

This week's top 5 snow totals:
Winter Park - 20"
Powderhorn 14"
Steamboat - 12"
Wolf Creek - 10"
Eldora - 9"

Over the weekend, high temperatures at Colorado ski areas will be above freezing, well into the 40s at many mountain bases and ski towns.

A few stray showers may pop up Friday or Saturday, with minimal accumulations. The extended outlook looks pretty dry with no good chance of snowfall until perhaps next weekend.

The mild and dry weekend may very well kick off the Spring run-off. If you plan on heading up for the weekend expect easy travel conditions with sunshine and light winds on the slopes.
