We're having a nice nasty storm in the N. Rockies today! Hope it's happening in your neighborhood too.

Could you send some of that a little further south? I just looked out the window and its not snowing on the Bridgers.

nolo, we got a foot of snow last night and the weather folks are saying we could get a foot or more per day for the next four days. It's nice to be getting snow.

in the Hood ... ummm, no it's ON the Hood! Thursday! Pray for low temps! I was flying from Pittsburgh to Portland connecting in Denver Friday evening. A plane load of junkies heading for Summit county and Vail. Made me jealous as heck ...

Sorry Gate Crasher - but you guys got all the early season low temps and drops last year ...

So when does Bridger open?

In JH right now, it's light snow and heavy wind. The snow is supposed to start really falling later today. Tomorrow night and Wednesday look very promising right now...

"Snow should develop quickly during the morning with the snow generally working its way Southward by midday. Ridgetop winds should increase significantly this afternoon from the West. This system should pass through quickly with heavy snowfall expected for several hours today. A stronger system is taking shape for Tuesday afternoon through Wednesday as a strong upper jet takes aim just to the South with West-WNW flow aloft. Significant snowfall, as well as blowing and drifting snow are expected with this system."

December 13 is the official opening date, Bob.

Don't know what to tell you, Rio. The Crazies and Big Belts got some.

Just got word that its dumping at Big Sky. Hopefully that means the snow's on its way here since the wind is blowing from that direction.

Bob -

Bridger Bowl has 15 inches so far which puts it way ahead of last year. There still is 2 1/2 weeks to accumulate snow before it opens. Big Sky & Moonlight Basin both had 18 inches before today's storm. Both are planning on opening Thursday.

The snow has been hitting Utah too. Went skiing at pcmr on Saturday conditions were great, boot deep powder, and no rocks in sight and the resort was deserted because it was probably 10 degrees and windy. 95 inches so far hope it continues.

Thanks, Rio and Nolo.

Any chance that either/both of you might be skiing Big Sky the afternoon of Tuesday, Dec 9? There's a possibility that I'll be heading by Big Sky that day and I might be able to ski for the afternoon.

I'll be at Big Sky Sunday, Nov. 30 for sure & probably one day the weekend before Dec. 9. If the snows keep coming and the skiing is decent I probably can be talked into joining you on the 9th. I'll keep you posted via PM.

We had non-sticking flurries here in Cincinnati. First snowfall of the season. But nothing stuck.

Please share. The east is in a bad way.

The weather is getting bastardly cold here in Southern Ontario. We got a little bit of snow today, but it obviously melt. Hopefully we'll get a decent snowfall soon. To the rest of you getting snow - enjoy yourselves!

I've spent the last two weekends enjoying Okemo's wonderful snow conditions. You should come up to where they make snow. Just because it's warm in the valley, doesn't mean Okemo will not have snow. This past weekend Okemo had more open terrain then Killington.

They had the guns going again last night. Here try this

We woke up to 1" of snow in Boise this morning. Just need a few more inches up at Bogus Basin. With any luck, first turns this weekend.
