They are predicting 54-78 inches by Friday morning. Since there is a snotel in that area, and at the same elevation of this forecast, we can see if it comes through. Current depth is 13 inches.

The NWS discussion from Pocatello pinned 50 inches around the Mtns of Sun Valley from Wednesday to Friday- which is absurd for 48 hours even if they are referring to the higher elevations. I'm assuming, since its a west flow from the Pacific, the Boise and Sawtooth Mtns would receive even higher amounts. If Bogus Basin received 50 inches, I'm assuming Vienna Mine, Trinity Mtn, Soldier, etc. could receive 60 or 70 inches of snow? Since when did Idaho become Utah or Whistler??

The pattern from Alaska must be heading South.

Remember in the late 90's it was all over the news, "Storm of the Century". Crazy amounts of snow were predicted and Idaho got about 3-4 inches. School wasn't even closed. But Wal-mart made a killing. I remember going to get some milk and people were on the verge of looting the place. Serious! THe shelves were bare. I bet their stock went through the roof that week.
