Lift served skiing could begin within 60 days .

Who provides the best 60 day alpine weather forecast for Colorado & Utah?

Cheers,

Madam Fatima and her crystal ball maybe?

I used to be able to do it with my ouija board but that was back when I was a virgin, quite a while ago I think.

Accurate 60 day weather forecast?

It's worth noting what people who depend on a good weather forecast consider a forecast. I believe airplane pilots get a 12 hour forecast and a 24 hour estimate. There is no 60 day forecast, it's just a guess.

Even a three day forecast is pretty much a guess. KSL's been know to regularly predict Powdergeddon, only to have the next day dawn completely cloudless.

There is a good chance of a LaNina, creating cooler Pacific Ocean currents. The Jet Stream is already lining up on the West Coast and Artic air masses seem to be dropping down from the North already. So YES it will be an eventful Winter for the West and Rocky Mts. Any takers,bring it.

Do not trust anything else (Farmer's, Old Farmer's, etc.)

Yup. Ten years ago you used to get above and below normal predictions. Now we only get above normal. Even in a La Nina year, when it used to always show below normal. Sad.

Unless memory fails me, last January was cold as hell in the Wasatch. And completly snowless as well.

GLOBAL WARMING!!! aside, slightly warmer temps don't necessarily mean a poor snow year. But I suppose it's still lots of fun to go around waving your arms in the air. sad.

The sky is falling the sky is falling. Just because NOAA says it's going to be warmer doesn't mean a low Snow year or for that matter correct in their extended forecast. There's more to Weather than Gov. maps.

All these crazy people waving their arms aside....

I would be willing to bet a large sum of money that Colorado will have better lift served terrain over the next 60 days....after all it has higher altitudes and typically a much longer ski season than Utah.

We have A-Basin and Loveland Basin.
