Good Long Range Skiing Weather Forecasts
First look at base depths - Tahoe, Utah, Colorado.
Second, I would look at the long range weather forecasts to see what is coming.
A good source of long range skiing weather forecasts is www.snocountry.com/index.php?topic=weather
. On Mondays Jim Roemer posts Roemer's Report and once or twice a week Herb Stevens posts Herb's Weather Missive usually once Sun or Mon or Tu and sometimes on Wed or Th or Fr.
Here are Jim Roemer's and Herb Steven's bios from the SnoCountry website.
Bio: Jim Roemer graduated with high honors and a degree in Meteorology from Lyndon State College in Vermont. Jim provides short and longer term weather forecasts to many major ski resorts and thousands of skiers who depend on more accurate forecasts for the mountains. His specialty is long range forecasting. Jim is also involved lecturing to universities about the climatology of global warming and teaching an occasional class in meteorology. He also advises several energy and futures trading funds and makes recommendations on how ski areas and other businesses can better protect their "bottom line" by hedging in the futures market or buying weather insurance packages.
Bio: Herb Stevens has spent much of his professional career on the “road less traveled”. After graduating from The Pennsylvania State University in 1975, Herb elected to see the world as a caddy on the PGA Tour for five years before launching his career as a meteorologist. After one year at WJAR-TV in Providence, RI, Herb became one of the original on-camera meteorologists at The Weather Channel. A year and a half later, he became the Chief Meteorologist at WNYT-TV in Albany, NY. As part of his duties at WNYT, Herb pioneered a weekly on-snow ski report, which in 1988 became his full-time job, The Skiing Weatherman.
The Skiing Weatherman is still Herb’s primary focus, reaching 32 markets and approximately 22 million viewers on a weekly basis. In addition to the weekly television report, Herb writes twice-weekly weather summaries for his own web site, www.skiingweatherman.com
, as well as www.snocountry.com
and the web site of the Ski Areas of New York. Along the way, he has also racked up an interesting series of other broadcasting credits, including LPGA and PGA play-by-play on ESPN, The Golf Channel, PGA TOUR Radio, and PGA TOUR.com. In addition, Herb was part of TNT’s coverage team at the 1999 Winter Goodwill Games in Lake Placid, NY, and was the feature reporter and interviewer for CBS’s coverage of the 1997 World Nordic Ski Championships in Norway. In September of 2004, Herb launched a nationally syndicated radio talk show about, what else, the weather! Look for Real Weather USA, coming soon to a market near you.
An avid golfer, Herb qualified for the 1998 U.S. Amateur Championship, and also played in the 1999, 2000, and 2001 British Amateur Championships. He also won the 1994 Rhode Island Mid-Amateur Championship.
Herb is married with two children, and lives in North Kingstown, Rhode Island.
