Snow has a chance to fall every day this week, according to snow forecasts that predict powder for many Colorado ski areas in the coming days.

The heaviest snow is expected tonight through Wednesday morning, with most mountains seeing anywhere from 6 to 12 inches, according to powder forecaster Joel Gratz.

“This will be a great storm cycle across the West, as most areas should see in excess of 18 inches through the next six days,” Gratz’s Sunday morning forecast said. “Some mountains may top 3 feet of snow.” calls for about 2 to 4 inches of new snow by this morning, with more possible, depending on whether storm bands provide larger bursts of snow than anticipated.

The National Weather Service shows snow in the Aspen forecast every day between now and Thursday. A hazardous-weather-outlook advisory warns of a “substantial winter storm” arriving tonight and continuing into Wednesday.

The National Weather Service also calls for another potential storm Tuesday through Saturday that could result in significant snowfall in the valleys and mountains.

“Uncertainty remains high, and people planning holiday travel should monitor the latest forecasts,” the outlook advisory reads.
