OU812 Here in Europe I heard talk about another cold and long winter. I hope this is true, would be awesome getting an extended season again like last year.

I've heard some mixed things about the snow predictions though, just laying out what I know about the climate here to maybe make a guess.
Understood, appreciated though!

destroy Cold, snow filled winters are definitely a good thing. It keeps the natural balance in the ecosystem and helps keep our precious glaciers and plenty of other important fixtures in tact.

Oh yeah, and it's good for having fun in too!

I'm never scared to not get enough precipitation. Some of the biggest European rivers originate in this little country. A bad winter thus is a warm winter in which especially lower resorts can have problems. But if it happend to be a warm winter with mainly rain in the lower regions, there's always higher peaks, that will have snow. And there's still glaciers. No, not concerned. But I'd definitely prefer a very cold winter like in the last two years, with heaps of pow, even if this means constant traffic chaos in the city and jams due to snow covered highways.

poutanen My prediction: There will be snow in the Canadian Rockies between now and next summer!

Honestly we get way more snow than almost anywhere else, so even when it's shit, it's still good. What's the worry?

I am intested to see what everyone else thinks this season will bring...?
Is Whistler considered Southern BC in this context? I mean, looking at a map it obviously is. but do they just mean the southern end of the Rockies, Trans Canadian Highway and lower, or can I take it that those farmer types are predicting a good one for Whistler as well?
