How many inches of snow does your ski resort have?

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 

My home resort which is mt hood meadows, has a 38 inch base. Just curious on how many snow other resorts have.

0 inches and we have a prediction for 2 or 3 inches of rain tomorrow to ensure that any snow they made evenings this week will be gone.

 To me, that means more time to workout those quads for the ski season. lol

while you are having warm weather Australia is having exceptionally cold start to summer,   dusting of snow at Perisher last weekend.   Very unusual not to be getting 90-100 F days this time of the year.

 

I went camping with the family last weekend and it was freezing th_dunno-1[1].gif

If it makes you feel any better, I won't be able to ski until right after Christmas due to my 7 day per week work schedule, though I'm taking one day off to ski Whistler.  Hopefully we will all have more snow by then.

38 inch base at Taos, Thursday through Sunday only till the 14th.  Excellent coverage for Taos at this time of year.

Zero.  It's pouring rain and ~50 degrees F right now.  nonono2.gif

 

Colder temps starting tomorrow, though, so they should be able to crank up the guns.  And the storm is forecast dump 6"+ overnight up in NH/VT.  I may have to take a run up to Cannon or Loon this weekend for a fix.

Bridger Bowl has just over a foot of snow. They are opening two lower lifts that service some very easy beginner runs this weekend but still need over a foot to open anything more advance. Oh well, looks like I'll have time to get my holiday chores done early this year.

Whitefish is opening this weekend, but not sure if there will be enough snow left after the first day to have a second day.  Mountain said to be extremely sketchy and only a few runs open, and a download required if you choose to ski the back side.

64" base at Wolf Creek

Take that La Nina

post #21 of 28

The compacted base on most runs is a few inches to about 20`` at Sun Peaks with about 100 out of 122 runs open. We don`t have a lot of rocks on the mountain and stumps were banned years ago and replaced with grass.

post #22 of 28

I think we had about 15" so far this year but it's long since melted. Decent skiing top to bottom with limited terrain on man made snow however. Expecting 6" tonight.

post #23 of 28

They are saying 20" at Sun Valley. Skiing is about 5 routes top to bottom, mostly groomers with man-made snow. Still pretty good for early December.

post #24 of 28

58" at Whitewater. See the trip report.

Schweitzer's not looking too bad at 32"-57". 100% open tomorrow.

Wow!  And I always think of Schweitzer as being our "twin".  Not this year apparently.  I'm waiting for Day two here to go, but afraid all the Day one crowds will prevent Day two from happening...frown.gif

Purg and Telluride have about half as much. Silverton is claiming tons. The snow is setting up and denser, however, but the snow quality is great.
