I am not a pro boarder. In fact I am a very late fan of the sport. This is more a diary than anything else, although comments and suggestions are appreciated. I'm going to try to keep track of how I do (and what I do) from season to season; what works and what fails; and how I improve over time.

It's been nine days since opening -- two weekends -- and so far, I am zero days on mountain. There's been some more snowmaking effort, but no natural stuff at all. Instead, we're alternating cold & dry with warm & torrential. Not kidding, the next three days this week are solid "Heavy Rain". This is followed by a dip in the freezing level to street level, accompanied by clear skies and NO precip whatsoever. Hello, last year.

Actually, this is worse than last year....

Further states that they're only opening some upper runs, for intermediate and advanced skiers/riders only.

The weather forecast "flipped" some time in the last 24 hours. Now suddenly the freezing level has plummeted to the 700m range. However, surprise surprise, no precip whatsoever. Just like last year. Either cold or wet, but not both at the same time. Starting to get angry...

Just a quick update. There has been almost constant rain since the little bit of snow on the 23rd. There is a series of tropical storms blowing in, one after the other, bringing 2K and 3K freezing levels. If the amount of rain we've been getting was falling as snow, we'd be buried. But no such luck.

Nov 3rd, mountains still all green. No indication of snow through the 8th at least. A Nov 15th opening is looking kinda unlikely...

Snow?

Posted 10-21-2014 at 09:19 AM by Donutz (This Side Up)

Today, for the first time this year, snow-forecast.com is showing snow on the chart. It's barely there, just 1 cm and mixed with rain, but there you go. It's on Sunday the 26th. More or less on schedule.

It's been a very wet couple of weeks, so we can hope that this isn't going to be just like last year.
