No Snow

Posted 12-15-2014 at 06:04 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

It's Dec 15th, and I'm still waiting for my first day on the mountain. We've just finished yet another series of rainstorms that have washed the snow away -- what snow there was...

I looked up on Saturday at the Cut on Grouse, and it was brown, brown, brown. Cypress has been closed as often as they've been open.

On the slightly not-as-negative side, there's a forecast of snow later this week. For whatever that's worth.

Sigh. Two weeks vacation coming...

Snow

It snowed last night. Just a couple of cm at street level, but Cypress is reporting 10 cm. The weather continues cold for several more days, so the snowmakers can do a job. It's possible that next weekend might just have enough snow for a session.

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....

From the Cypress web page:

Cypress Mountain is very excited to announce we will be opening for the 2014/15 Season this Saturday morning!

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

Argh, v2

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...
