Salt Lake riders meetup , Brighton Saturday January 21st?

Hey folks were still a week out but I wanted to get this long overdue meetup out there for people to comment on.

All the snow weather geeks are in agreement that the crap weather pattern we've been stuck in since early\mid November has finally subsided and the Jetstream has dropped down into it's relative normal path heading strait through SLC and right over Alta\Brighon(Where it belongs)

Looks like we'll be getting a conservative 2-6in(maybe more) this Sunday(15th) night and then some bigger amounts Thursday(19th) and Friday(20th) possibly even a semi-legit Utah powder day amounts waiting for us by Saturday morning.

Here's the latest update from the nice guys over at WSF

"Wasatch Snow Forecast
Everything still looking good in the forecast... GFS model that had precip farther north than other global models yesterday is now more in line with the other models which is good for us in the Wasatch. Cold storm Monday morning with give way to warmer, moisture-laden systems as we head toward later next week. Snow levels may be a concern for the first storm or two. More details this afternoon...."



So can I get role Call of Salt lake City riders that are interested in meeting up and riding with others ?

Friday update from Wasatch Snow Forcast, lookin like 2 feet of fresh by the end of next weekend

Friday PM Update:

Just a quick update tonight . . . The GFS Model, which was showing the bulk of precip moving well north of the area, has now come more in line other global models for a couple consecutive runs now. *Good news for us. *Confidence continues to grow that this pattern will bring us the copious snow amounts we’ve been waiting for. Storm Monday morning looks to drop a quick few inches in the mountains. *Main benefit of this quick-moving, moisture starved system is to open the door for more potent energy later next week. *This is a cold storm so snow levels won’t be an issue…

A warm, moist westerly flow will then set up by Wednesday with embedded impulses moving through. *The cold air will remain to our north for the first several days and snow levels will rise to around 7,000 feet or higher. *We are basically looking at a train of impulses moving into the west through at least the 25th or so of January. *All models are in general agreement and the question now is just how much precip can we expect and when will colder air move in to give us the light, fluffy snow we’re all used to.

At this time, I would say it’s safe to say we’ll see at least a foot of wet snow at area resorts between Wednesday and Friday night (probably more). *With more snow expected next Saturday and beyond. This wet snow will fall on a very weak base and avalanche danger is going to be extreme until the snow settles and we get some lighter snow on top. *BE CAREFUL! On the other hand, this is the heavy, wet base that ski resorts love.

For real, I'm looking forward to a proper opening if Mille and Great Western once the snowpack stabilizes.

Unfortunately I won't have the funds to join this time around. Maybe in mid Feb. But I have a pass to the bird, so anytime someone wants to ride up there I'm down.

Forecast models are holding up(and their backing off on the warmer temps), the minimum right now is 2.5 feet by Monday with most models trending upwards of 4.5 to 5 feet.

Love it, touch it feel it!
