Memphis Hawk Yeah I've lived here for years and I plan on many more. Day to day is just fine man. we deal with it for 6 months straight. just got 15 inches today, but the driveways cleared and streets are scraped, everybody in a 300 mile radius has dedicated snow tires on all their cars and life keeps moving. When a 15 inch snowstorm hits Nashville TN it looks like a holy hell disaster because everyone is driving summer tires sliding into each other, people bum rush grocery store because they think its apocalypse when it's really just something that doesn't doesn't phase people who are prepared and acclimated. I wish I lived CLOSER to the mountains I wish my house was surrounded by powder fields all day and the only way to leave was on a snowboard, or perhaps a snowmobile that goes 100MPH. haha

I actually saw on TV last week in Japan that Aomori is getting particularly a lot of snow. It would be great for boarding but living day to day must be tough. Do you live in Japan? What do you do? (you can pm me)

Mt. Revelstoke is another mountian adjacent to town. There is a goverment operated snow-pillow on it, at a slightly lower, but similar elevation to RMR's snow-plot and has been providing data at that particular location since 1992. It is directly north, across the highway, from RMR (Mt.Mackenzie).
Mt.Revelstoke is a National Park, has a road to the top, and has the historic Revelstoke ski jump site on it's lower flanks.
Here's a pic I snapped up on Mt.Revelstoke, looking South at RMR into North/Greely Bowl...

and while I'm at it here's a rope swing just up the road (taken the same day)

Hey Chupa, you have "Mt. Revelstoke", is it not "Mt. Mackenzie"?

WaltzingMatera I have just gone to Niseko (Hokkaido, Japan) for a week again. It was snowing heavily non-stop everyday. And due to the exchange rate, the crowds were very minimal

Surely Hokkaido is the best in the world for snow quality and snow quantity. Unbelievable.

nomembername Out East we would want a negative index on the NAO. We dont have that right now. Weathermen say it can shift at any time but sometimes it sticks in one direction for a long period of time.

Welcome to the North Atlantic Oscillation www-page

That site explains what I've heard. Fingers crossed.
