I would go with the Cascades.. or maybe Maine

Cascades are awesome!  I think just the 3rd day this year with sun in the higher Cascades?  

My kid had semester break today so nice skiing in this morning on a rather balmy day.  Pretty warm season out here but snow pack is pretty normal above 6000' . 

LOVE spring skiing out here from late March into mid May.  Photo of the summit ski bowls today.

Was at Heavenly a few weeks ago, South Lake Tahoe, great powder. Sierra Nevada's region also great

This is random but does anyone remember that really isolated snow event that hit west of Philly I believe? I want to say it was a decade or more ago possibly. From what I remember, it was some fluke snow band that just sat over a small area and dumped snow. I think there were reports of like 15 inches.

I’m going to hit up either Utah or Aspen sometime before the season is over.  I would prefer SLC, so many great options but might lean Aspen because flights to Denver are a lot cheaper and easier to get last minute.

I am in C Springs this week for work.  It just snows randomly like last night.  Snow squalls roll through.  6K feet elevation is a great thing. They get a brief warm spell then warning level event by Monday night.

Think you’re referring to February 2009 around Lancaster, PA. Narrow band set up and absolutely dumped on parts of Lancaster and Chester county.image.jpeg.0d5d61a1f19662b911e151ae8f53f8a6.jpeg

Just imagine how much a fluke like that changes a season. Some areas around Philly got over a foot from that upper level low also.

I lived in Delco which is the county left of PHL and we got crushed. Tiniest micro deathband ever. I think iirc we picked up 11" areas 15 miles away 0. What a fluke event that was.

Imagine living about 2 miles away and getting almost nothing. Yeah that’ll make a season alright. Just like the March 09 storm did for our season here in Winchester.

I live just west of that area. I remember watching the band that dumped all that snow and just being so sad.

I had just moved into my house here that week. We got 3-4 inches from a small band that developed in southern PA and enhanced as it moved south into our area. Probably the higher hills here helped to squeeze out every bit of liquid possible. Almost like our own version of upslope. This occurred late at night into the very early morning hours. LWX played catch up and they issued a WWA. By that time our snow was ending. They didn't think the band would weaken as it moved south so they put Baltimore County in the WWA. As it turned out the band would weaken. 

The band stayed strong for a few miles south of us. The 3 inch line made it to about Cape Horn Rd.  Once you got south of the hampstead walmart accumulations were much lighter. Maybe only an inch or so. That abrupt drop off shows how the first ridge weakened the band south of here. By the time it got to Reisterstown it fizzled  and there was only a dusting. 

The band actually regenerated a bit and parts of AA county got a decent coating.

Seeing some weak signs of convergence at the lower levels of the atmosphere and we have seen the neg pressure anomalies building back through the region. I will look a little deeper after the overnight runs come out see if there may be anything there. 

Nam Definitely  stronger with ns vort signature.  If areas that get decent qpf or rates can overcome a warm column maybe a sneaky dusting or minor accumulation :weenie:

If we can get some banding to develop up here we might have an outside chance.

Gfs has been trending colder for the Wednesday evening/ Thursday timeframe. Ukmet also is colder at the surface.  Latest Gefs follows the op with a colder solution.  Something to watch "this Spring ":ph34r:
