2011 -2012 upcoming Season

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

I'm done for the season, and it was a very good season of skiing for me. All of you still making turns that's great and make one for me. I'm off to the golf course if it ever stops raining here in SW Pa.

 

Question I have is what can we expect next year in the Rockies and the Mid Atlantic coming off the La Nina year. Could it be a repeat again in Colorado where I note Vail has 495 in. YTD. We had a great stretch of winter here in SW Pa. with probably almost three straight months of consistent winter weather.

 

Do we have decent prospects of repeating this past season's weather or are we doomed to a meteorological correction for next season.

 

Which way is the wind going to blow and over what current temps next year? It's crazy being so affected by something I have absolutlely no control over.

Look out kid
Don't matter what you did
Walk on your tip toes
Don't try, 'No Doz'
Better stay away from those
That carry around a fire hose
Keep a clean nose
Watch the plain clothes
You don't need a weather man
To know which way the wind blows.

Squaw Race Department has a sound system directed outward at the race hill. they blast a lot of 60s stuff, as they are a bunch of guys from that era.

 

did you pull out Bringin' it all Back Home to get the lyrics?  or do you have that committed to memory?  love the scene in Don't Look Back with the flash cards, I can see him standing there, flipping those large cardboard cards. nice.

 

We don't need no stinkin' weatherman....three inches new today; what the heck will that produce up there??? sun on it this afternoon, interesting...

Roundturns ignore these irritating people who are insensitive to true grieving and loss. Word is that La Nina is overnext season. So normal. Whatever that is.

I'm going on the second year since my return to skiing where I already feel really good with my current quiver selection.  I don't see adding any new/different skis unless they come so cheap and fit so well that I am willing to give away something else to make room for them.  Continued priority to get my son up to speed so he can explore more of the mountain.

Too early to tell for sure.  A strong La Nina like we had this year usually starts to dissipate around now (which this one is) but sometimes forms again before next winter.  So it is possible that we'd end up in another (likely weaker) La Nina next year, it's done that before.  Normal (no La Nina or El Nino) is the more likely bet, though, it sounds like from what I've read so far.
