I am bored and yearning for snow. Doing a quick scan of the 10 day weather forecasts for Mammoth Lakes CA, Alta UT, Jackson Hole WY, Mt Baker WA and last but certainly not least, Whistler B.C., significant new snowfall looks pretty bleak, except for Whistler.
So, make your best guess when your usual ski area will get another 2+ feet of new snow over a 2-3 day period. My home mountain is Mammoth, sitting on a 1.5-2 foot base. My guess is plus or minus a few days of January 1st before it gets to a 4 foot+ base.
What does your Magic 8 ball tell you?
