But this year is a horrible year.  It's one of the worst years (outside of the winter that wasn't in '04-'05) in memory.  We've only got 149" of well consolidated base.  Don't know how much snowfall, they don't bother to report that until the end of the season.

 Tony Crocker has a list here. It was last updated 2 weeks ago.

Among the resorts sampled, Arizona Snowbowl leads the way with 170% more snowfall than usual. The other extreme is Loveland, which is getting less than half its usual totals.

Horrible? Guess that depends on your perspective. Yeah, it's been a warm, low snow season. We got 200" in November, and opened two weeks before thanksgiving on 100% of the mountain. The coverage is mediocre with only 149" of base as comapred to 180" we normally have this time of year. The creeks are still open. The season may be a short one - I've only been on this season's snow since September 5th. We only got 22" of snow last week, and I'll be hard pressed to break 80 days before March is out.

Yeah, 04-05 was REALLY bad; the wirst in memory....but the mountain still closed on April 30 out of the lower lodge; and we ended up with about 450" of snow.

Hey, I've heard so much bitching about the season around here. "I'm not even going up. The snow's not that good." You wouldn't know because YOU'RE NOT GOING UP. Spoiled whiners.
