Dangerous

post #1 of 5

Below is the latest National Weather Service forecast for Jackson. We had 12" last night, another 8" today while the lifts were open, and 12" to 16" predicted for tonight. It's snowing so hard right now that we can't see the trees 50' from our windows.

People describing the skiing have exhausted all the superlatives and have resorted to expletives. I've had so many face shots the last four days that my chin and nose are frozen. It's just unbelievable.

Glad you guys are having a good winter up there. We are waiting for the same storm to hit on Friday/saturday. 1-3 feet predicted for elevations above 9000 ft. The only worry is being snowed in at work like I was last March.

Last couple weeks have been outstandingly terrific. Cold Gulf of Alaska storms have been on a roll from the Pacific, diving into California and its Sierra, then sweeping up to Utah that has dumped even lighter fluff than we get, then up into Wyoming and northern Colorado. Base at my pass area is now 11 to 15 feet from 251 season inches. Will jump on it tomorrow morning after todays 2 feet which closed down most all lifts. Aint it great! -dave

Things are back to normal!

Last year it was brown in the valley.

Send some of that snow to the east!
