And the corresponding model traces for Alta shows only one member getting to 6 inches and most with no more than two inches.
Yup, the situation is nearly hopeless. However, these are extended-range forecasts, so perhaps we can hope that we get a surprise. For instance, the ridge could shift upstream and open us up to northwesterly flow. While I can't rule out such a surprise, the odds are more than likely that we will see very little in the way of snow over the next week (maybe even 10 days). At least there's no snow on the valley floor, which should help some with the intensity of the inversion.
