Weather-

I've been reading online a lot and I hear winter is going to suck. The snow Colorado has had- has been 'hot snow' - and Park City only has a few rails and flat tops open. What the f**k is that about. :-[

Keystones new park expansion is sick.

What are you talking about? "Hot snow"? I have no idea what that is.

It's still pretty early in the season. The past two seasons it's been next to no snow through Thanksgiving then it dumps come December. If Christmas comes and stuff is still the same, then we can start cryin' the blues.

Also, Wolf Creek is 100% open. Monarch has gotten a ton of snow. Silverton is doing fine. It's just the Northern ranges of the state that haven't gotten a ton of snow. Most Front Range ski areas average 100-200" less annual snowfall a year than those more Southern resorts. The season is just fine right now. Really it's just being average for the time of year.

Don't worry about that shit they are guessing!

At the start of last season I read a report on theweathernetwork.com that said Alberta would have above avarage snowfalls. What a crock of shit that was!

So far this season has dumped!

It SUCKS out here in the East. We're about to enter a 4th straight week of significantly above-average temps, and the long-range is more of the same shit well into next week. Not a single fucking snowflake, not even coming close to below freezing at night. I'm actually starting to get kind of worried that we're going to have a single digit number of boarding days this season.. if any at all. I'm fucking pissed.

The midwest has been horrible. I had high hopes for a good winter when Oct had 2" over the previous record for precipitation but we haven't hit a single below freezing night yet. Monday it is finally supposed to hit 31 over night not that any snow could be made then. If this keeps up I could end up with under 10 days riding since I can only ride on the weekends. Fuck!

Weather forecasts usually get it wrong 2 days out, let alone entire season forecasts. How the hell can you declare a season bad before its really even started? What kind of media hyped hysteria are you falling for this time?

I've gotta say, I think it is a mass hysteria thing. I have been seeking weather forecasts so much more, now that I ever have. I keep looking, but I know that we never get snow till much later in the season. Just think snow and it'll come!!!!! If not, buy land by Baker, and Wolf Creek. They'll be hot pieces of land once they become the only mountains that actually get snow!
