Big Sky just got 16"

Big September accumulation, wow. Anyone anticipating a big year in your part of the woods? NOAA Satellites show good September flow out of Siberia. Typhoons in the Pacific are pushing it into BC for now, but are you in the crosshairs for a big season? How is the East looking? I would love to hit Jay Peak on a big cycle.

April and May called;

They would like to remind everyone to enjoy 100% open terrain while everyone else is busting out their bikes and golf clubs in the Spring.

The year it snowed 13" here on Halloween was a total bust of a winter.  That 13" turned out to be the biggest storm of the year in Southern New England.

I remember that snow. The season sucked.

'05 or '06 maybe?

 

I think it was around march of '07 (my last winter in VT) that it dumped something like 5 feet in just over 24 hrs. Couldn't get out of my driveway till noon. Collapsed the roof on a local barn and killed a few dairy cows. I don't remember much else about the rest of that season, but the '03/'04 early season at Sugarbush was the best of my 4 years in the valley!

"NEVER, EVER trust an early/premature snow fall"

 

I said that …. sometime ago ……. after we got pimped by an early dump.

Yeah... it got me all excited until I read this :

 

"...make sure to take advantage of the sun next week with highs of 68° degrees!” – Big Sky

 

Boo!

If it was Revelstoke they would be counting the snowfall as part of the 2015-16 season regardless of melting.:rolleyes

Did Whitefish get any precipitation? So many haters on this thread for early snow - I'll take a 16" dump any day, even if it already melts off!

They had some earlier they posted about, but I haven't been watching the web cams. I've always felt that early snows indicate a lousy winter because the precipitation has been used up. But I haven't kept notes on that theory.

Well at least Big Sky can count that 16" towards their mythical 400" annually total.:D 

 

384" to go.............
