Brundage Mountain reported 21 inches of new snow over the weekend, and more snow is on the way to the West-Central Mountains, according to the National Weather Service.
Bogus Basin got 5 inches of new snow over the weekend, according to the ski area’s snow report. Officials plan to fully open the resort on Saturday, although rain on the mountain Monday prompted concerns, spokeswoman Susan Saad said. Forecasts call for cooler temperatures and snowfall later in the week, she said. As of Monday evening, Bogus reported a base of 21 inches.
A series of moisture-laden systems from the west this week will keep the Treasure Valley from drying out, and those systems are expected to keep the snow coming to the mountains, particularly the high peaks.
In the Treasure Valley, highs are expected in the low 50s on Tuesday and Wednesday but will cool off Thursday through to the weekend.
Overnight lows will be above freezing until Friday or Saturday. There’s a chance of snow in the Valley on the weekend, the National Weather Service reports.
