Just about the whole Western US is in a bowl of suck right now. January dry spell. Looks like around 23-25th we could get a positive flow again. Hopefully it comes back and sticks around until June.

whining about the lack of fresh snow after the record December we just had here in washington is a sad.. some parts of the nation are barely open.
I need some R&R before the next storm cycles show up in February.. this is a good thing!!

As always, 3 days after I visit.

Two years ago trip to Tahoe. Snowy December, dry for 3 weeks, I get there, snow 5 days after I leave.

I'm a curse. You guys don't want me to come to your area!!!

Although last year it snowed pretty well right before I got to Denver, and right before I got to Tahoe.

No more planned trips for the year. I'm storm chasing.

One of our more main runs at my local resort is sill opening in 2 weeks, and that's just what is predicted! You know the snow is garbage when one of the main runs isn't open until Feburary!

Well I heard you guys had a great December, we did too down here in Utah.

But it is one of the weirdest Januarys I've seen. Single digit temps in the city, low 30's in the mountains, the storms we did get in Jan we had double the snow in the city than we did in the mountains....

But it's been one dry month, January is usually a wild card over here, at least november and december were killer, and I'm sure February/March/April will show us what they're made of...which is usually the sky puking non-stop.

Yeah, here in the lower mainland (Vancouver BC area) it's been very unusual. On balance it's been a better than average season -- we got so much snow in December, and such good weather that it makes up for a questionable January. Actually this January hasn't been that much worse than normal. This temperature inversion hasn't been as drastic for us as expected, i.e. it's not a heat wave on the mountain, just above freezing.

What's interesting to me is that I never paid much attention to this stuff before I started snowboarding (I hated winter too). I think this is the first big winter temp inversion that I've really noticed.

Still, I wish it would go away.
