Now there's a sight I'd gladly paid to see. : </font>[/quote]Y'all better thank Ullr that I don't have a web video link or I just might treat you to the snowdance! [img]graemlins/evilgrin.gif[/img] BadRat, you better pray for snow. If we don't have snow by December 9th, we are all doing a snowdance in the Bridgeport Brew Pub. And I am just the guy to make it happen.
I am now in the Seattle area and am happy to hear that it will snow soon. [img]smile.gif[/img]
Last weekend I drove down to Mt. Bachelor after stopping to look at Timberline which was mostly barren except for the Palmer snow field. Bachelor was a lot of fun but there wasn't a lot of snow. my skis picked up some ugly scratches on their bases but no core shots.
Yeah, last July we had more snow than we do now. I think it is time to roll out the big guns, you know, that whole Tibetan naked women-dancing thing. I don't think they have anything else going on at Timberline, so, who is ready to sacrifice their modesty for Ullr and snow?
YESSS!!!!! Finally, the snow is f'cast to arrive in the PNW this week. I see a trip to Mt Baker or Whistler in the next week or so. Here's the WA state report, Whistler report below:

Here's the f'cast for Whistler. I've been to Vancouver twice in the last 2 weeks and had hoped to bring my skis for a day of skiing but the weather conspired against me:
Whistler - Blackcomb.
Tonight..Cloudy With Flurries. Alpine Steady Near Minus 5.
Snowfall Accumulation 3 To 5 Cm.
Wednesday..Periods Of Snow. Alpine High Minus 1. Snowfall Accumulation 15 To 20 Cm.
Freezing Level.. 1100 Metres This Afternoon Rising To 1500 Metres Tomorrow Afternoon.
Mountain Top Winds..Southerly 50 To 70 Km/H Becoming Westerly 40 To 60 Km/H This Evening. Winds Increasing To Southwest 70 To 100 Km/H Late Wednesday Morning.
Extended Forecast For Whistler - Blackcomb.
Thursday.. Snow. Snowfall Accumulation 40 To 50 Cm. Freezing Level 1800 Metres.
Friday.. Periods Of Snow. Snowfall Accumulation 15 To 25 Cm. Freezing Level 1300 Metres.
Saturday.. Snow. Snowfall Accumulation 35 To 45 Cm. Freezing Level 1400 Metres.
According to Larry Shick at skiwashington.com, "Snowfall will range from 6-12 inches per 24-36 hour period for the next several days, then probably beyond.... If what the computer maps indicates for next week materializes -- I would guess everybody could open, at least partially or possibly fully by the weekend of the 20th"
