If you move the map to the top of the mountain and click, it will move the zone to that higher elevation.
Thanks everyone - I've bookmarked all these sites!

Can you tell I'm looking for snow? LOL

Snow Hound Wasatch Weather Weenies is a great site to add a little meat and some flavour to that dry stats sandwich.

Anyone who has been to Mammoth knows that the weather on the mountain (peak at 11,000) is much different than the weather in town.

See here:

http://forecast.weather.gov/MapClick...2=-72.6857&e=1

That has it raining with temps at 41 degrees as of 4:25 PM Eastern. I know for a fact that Stowe is blasting the snow guns right now, and that requires temps to be 32 or lower.

Also, does NOAA have doplar radar graphs or moving graphs? I couldn't find it on the website.
Through the NOAA site you can just go to the map and click on a location to get the local forecast.

ParkShredder I like snow-forecast.com You can check weather at different altitudes which is handy.

baseline6 am I really the first person to mention Snowforecast.com?

About as good as it gets in forecasts specifically for resort/Ski Areas. Check out the site you'll see what I mean.

HoboMaster NOAA - It's the most accurate I've found. Other sites have much higher standard deviations, or they always predict more snow then ever actually happens.

NWBoarder NOAA.gov or nothing for me. I do use the Ski & Snow Report app on my phone for resort updates though.
