i don't know, dudes.. La Nina is HERE.. we are in a small dry spell at the moment, but last Friday i rode the deepest POW i have ever ridden in Nov in washington in one of our secret zones..
we brought our boards but it was to DEEP to snowboard.. or atleast that's what we said
here's some vid i captured that day with a new to me Sony HD cam of my buddy destroying the zone (still learning the zoom speeds and shit) and this is NOT MY EDIT work
i know i know.. its sledding.. but damn that shit was DEEEEEEP!
I agree with oneshot. La Nina IS HERE. Sure, places like Tahoe & Utah aren't getting what they had last year at this time, but last year was NOT NORMAL for those places on a La Nina year.
Most of the places where La Nina normally benefits (ie: British Columbia and surround areas) are MUCH ABOVE AVERAGE for this time of year with 5ft on the ground!
Utah actually does pretty well during La Nina years. California tends to be more like this year than last, but as we saw it does swing the other way. Late starts are par for the course in La Nina seasons around here. Usually once it starts it's a pretty solid season until late April, early May. If it still sucks by Christmas, I'll start getting worried...
