Is it just me, or is there no snow?

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 

This is my first year skiing so I'm watching and being alert to every single snowfall possible, so I do not know if it's just me, or if there's just no snow...

 

Anyone in Utah? I'm in Central and there's tiny patches of snow here and there but not enough to make a small snowball out of....

Wow, that sure isn't a lot of snow. I've got more down here in BC, but also less than other years. There's still tons of rocks, etc, sticking out at our ski hill, though.

Yeah man the only way most of the resorts can survive is because of their man-made snow, which kinda ruins the point of Utah snow.... I hear up north (Alta) they're doing alright. But the closest resort to me hasn't even opened yet... We're also averaging 55*F days, everyday...

It's been a pretty slow start this year, where I ski in BC and most other resorts throughout BC have good conditions compared to other places. But like Sigurd said, it's a lot less then normal.

Great season on the border of Alberta/BC rockies.

It's just you.  There's tons of waist deep powder all over the country - you mean you don't see it?

Wake up @JayT.  That was last season.  I know thoughts of last seasons powder days are still floating under our legs.  Heck, it snowed through mid June!  However, this week, the upper elevations are going to get snow!  Finally it might start to look like winter and we can put away the mtn bikes and golf clubs.  Think cool wintery thoughts to help bring the snow levels down.  None of this 'r" stuff will do any of us any good.

Is your post missing a wink or something or are you just completely oblivious?  Did I *really* need to say I was kidding?

Speaking of golf, I was out playing yesterday, it was a nice 60*, no snow on the entire range.... Keep in mind I'm in UTAH at 5,000ft! We're getting St George weather this year I guess...

Northern UT is horrible as well.

 

Be glad you're in central Utah--you're closer to ditching skiing and doing biking/hiking/canyoneering in southern UT.

Yeah too bad my dirt bike just tore up its sprocket otherwise I'd be out riding my bikes' little heart out. Wish I was in southern, it would be warm enough to go running with shorts or even no pants for that matter!beercheer.gif

The the OP (original poster, if you're new to forums)...I highly suggest you post this same question in the Teton Gravity forums.  They're a lot more kind to newbies over there and you're sure to get a much more civil response.


Best of luck!

They also love obnoxious Texans.

 

And this from the guy that posted this newb-tastic post? One way or the other, man.

Haha thanks for the heads up. I may be new to skiing but definitely not to forums! smile.gif I've actually made a couple wink.gif

There is snow.  We're getting nuked in the Cascades right now.  No kidding.  Over 60 new inches predicted for Baker by Thursday night and more to follow. That's on top of a base of about 120".

Come to Montana!  It's not our great La Niña 2010/11, but we have great skiing at Big Sky! (95% open,152 of 155 trails and all lifts) We had powder today with more snow predicted every day for the next eight days! AND . . . they're honoring the Colorado Epic pass! (free skiing throughout January if you stay in Big Sky lodging) Come on up! Direct flights from Denver and they just improved the airport.

Not sure about Central UT, but the mountains north of I-70 are on track for several feet by next weekend.  It looks like the storms will be on the warm side with heavy/dense snowfall starting on Wednesday and continuing through at least Sunday.

Well apparently we are going to get some showers in a few days.... but it's rain/snow>rain>rain>rain.... See for yourself: http://www.weather.com/weather/5-day/Richfield+UT+84701  (I like her bangs)

 

btw, do you know if they have a bus system up north for any resorts? Say from SLC to Alta? If yes, I might be able to persuade my county to get a small bus system for things like that...

My TGR comment was a joke...really just commenting on the fine nature of the folks here on Epic. 

 

BTW, I'm not sure how asking where to potentially move a family trip for better snow conditions qualifies as "newb-tastic" (cool word, btw), but whatever.  I'm also not sure how not skiing the East Coast, as someone who grew up in the West Coast, is a surprise.

 

The Texas comment is just plain ignorant, and is about as classy as making a racial/religious slur, so one way or the other, man.  

 

And not that I need to defend myself, but living in Texas doesn't necessarily make one a "Texan" (as if there's something wrong with that).  I'm stuck in this snowless state for 4 more years, and then maybe I can move to UT...(does that stand for Utah or University of Texas??) jk.gif I've attached my photo below so you'll recognize me if I do:

I'll say hi if I do, since we're dressed the same way shouldn't be hard to find each other beercheer.gif
