The Boise mountains will get 3 to 6 inches on Saturday, and much more snow Sunday through Tuesday. It appears there will lots of fresh powder for skiing, just about anyplace in southwest or west-central Idaho, this weekend.
Projected snowfall totals:
- Bogus Basin: 24 to 36 inches
- Banner Summit: 36 to 48 inches
- Brundage: 24 to 36 inches
- Mores Creek: 36 to 48 inches
- Tamarack: 24 to 36 inches
