That's what snow looks like. I almost forgot here in Tahoe, it is 55 degrees and sunny. There isn't a drop of snow on the ground at Lake level and none in the forecast. This is starting to look bleek for the season.

The average of the last 4 yrs snowfall in NA have been the snowiest since they started measuring in 1967.
 

 

Nice link.

It's curious how the graphics show the average snowfall for the north Hemisphere slightly going up in the last few decades, but in the other hand spring snowfall is considerably going down...

Bad News, Good News

 

Bad News - I just cancelled all my reservations for 7-14 January at SLC as I couldn't find a forecast with any reasonable precipitation for the next 10 days. YUCK!

 

Good News - Changed my plans to Whistler, which has been getting snow daily, and has it constantly in the forecast. This will create a logistics problem going forward into February regarding quiver placement, but the SLC thing was just a non-starter.

I know it's early, but we have a week in Utah planned for early March.  We are driving up from Phoenix.  At this rate, I might change that and drive to Taos, as they have been getting the best snow in the U.S. so far this year.  They just got blasted with another storm last week.

 

Come on mother nature, I have a brand new pair of Rossi Experience 88's I'm dying to rip on.  Start giving us some snow please!

The weather has pretty much sucked around here too.  We've had lot of precipitation but its all been of the cold rain variety.  The worse part has been that it hasn't been all that warm during the day but the temperatures just aren't falling at night.  We're only seeing a 10 degree swing between daytime highs and nighttime lows even when the skies are relatively clear.  There is a glimmer of hope though.  The 15 day forecast has the possibility of 2-3 full days of snow making next week which would just what the doctor ordered.  For now I will make do with the ice, hard pack, corn, slush, and generally funky snow we have because at least we can still ski.  Most other ski area without 5-6 hours aren't open.

I'm not complaining, Snowbowl and Sunrise in AZ are open, and I am going up to Snowbowl for the long weekend, but getting another foot of snow this week would help cover some patchy spots.  But I can ski.  Tahoe and other big areas aren't even open at all!

Pathetic conditions in VT.  Stratton, Killington, disaster.  Been epic mountain bike weather however and my golf game should be spectacular come April/May.

It's not even January yet.  Relax.  Utah will be just fine by March.

Wow. Worrying about a March trip? And I thought I worried too much about the weather. It can change quickly.

post #43 of 45

It ain't much for this time of the year but at least we are able to slide on snow...

By March, I would honestly bet that Utah conditions will be better than Taos. Once it actually starts snowing, it will come on fast and more terrain will open fast.

I still f'n hate you weather.  Yeah, you got drunk a couple times this year and called me at 4 a.m. trying to make up. You were all like - "I promise I'll be cold and snowy...I'll blow snow for you every day, sometimes twice a day. I'll be blustery."  But it was totally awkward when you couldn't come through with a real storm, and within a day or two you were acting like a total raining jackass again. If I ever see you again I am going to beat the living snow out of you. BTW, I gave your jacket to the Salvation Army.
