The OpenSnow Colorado early predictions for Friday and Saturday are calling for 6”+ at 8000’ and higher.

 

Looking good!

We hiked in snow (2 inches in places) yesterday at Jumbo Pass, which is 35 k west of Panorama, starting at about 2000 meters elevation.

I plan to be there for WROD-opening-day...  Might as well do it at least once, and here is my chance...

Really? Because the NWS is calling for a high near 54 at 9000', and  a "slight" chance of snow showers pretty much across the state.

I stand corrected, 9000' and higher will get 6" +, but still snow down to 8000'. Joel's usually a very reliable forecaster.

Well, here's his chance. If he's right, great, but I'm suspecting the NWS is more likely to be.

ha ... well, I haven't yet gone on absolute no. 1 opening day, that frightens me. But going within a few days, that works out ok. I did go on opening day to Copper last season, but they had a bit more open than ABasin did.  Took my skis in for a little loving today, so they will be nice and sharp. (New strategy this season: prepare skis only for hard snow, and totally ignore the wider sticks in the quiver.)

Mrs jimmy turned the furnace on yesterday, first snow in WV mountains this morning and while it won't last the slopes are white.

Hiked a ridge loop in White mountains (NH) yesterday, light wet snow above 3,500 feet from Sun night, some corn fell on us off and on all till mid afternoon. Most gone when sun came out later.

Doesn't look much better than last year.  Went there for the first time last December and skied the two groomers that were open at the time.  Got the second chair on the far left lift on the front side, yaaay (not sure if there is a back side).  Seems like a nice hill when there is snow, and the lodging isn't expensive.

Tonight
Snow. Amount 5 cm. Low minus 4
 
The snow is just starting.
 
The Canmore Nordic Centre started to spread the snow that they saved from last season - should be able to ski skate by next Monday.  Its a cool (pun intended) process.  The Nordic Centre has a big hole that is filled with human-made snow during the winter.  the snow is covered with a thick layer of straw for the summer.  The snow is extracted in the fall and used to make a couple of kilometres of trail that is wide enough to ski skate.  This allows earlier training for the Cross country and biathlon teams.  Normal folk can ski on the track during off hours.
