later winter in 2010?

i know weather is very hard to predict this far in advance, but i've heard alot of jabber about winter coming late this season( for us westerners at least)
late as in not coming into full force until late january/early february. has anyone else heard anything similar? last year was a pretty banger season for us californians (i rode from halloween till late may) due to el nino , but this winter is supposedly trending more towards being a la nina type season.

any thoughts?

It's looking to be a La Nina year, which doesn't always bode very well for Cali unfortunately. The PNW, Colorado, Utah, and other rocky mountain states usually have a pretty banger season. One of the best early seasons I've had was during La Nina. Waste deep powder at the end of October and near mid season conditions by the first week of December. We also had a La Nina that didn't really get doing until the first week of December, but when it did, it didn't stop snowing until May...

i read some more stuff today that doesnt agree with what i originally posted. apparently its very rare for a la nina to directly follow an el nino event, so that could mean good things for us out west

I don't know if you can really generalize over large areas. Last year the east coast got buried, while western Canada got diddley (remember trucking snow in for the Winter Olympics?). Apparently California did ok. I just hope we have better than last year. It was crap.

A La Nina season is being predicted more and more. Could be a "neutral" year, but La Nina following and El Nino season is not uncommon at all. I can think of at least two times this has happened.

As for BC getting "dick". Not uncommon for an El Nino season either, if this year turns out to be La Nina, get your snow shovels ready.

^^^One of many different weather dudes making their predictions. Take it with a block of salt of course. One of the seasons predicted to be a very dry one in the Colorado Rockies turned out to be a record breaker with snow fall.

Oh please, oh please!

In winter 2008, we had a crapload of snow at residential level -- lasted more than a month, which for the lower mainland is very rare. Unfortunately I didn't take up snowboarding until the next year, so I was actually cursing the snow!

whatever happens, i just pray that cali gets some snow. after having a great season this past year, i'd be heartbroken to have a warm, dry winter
the next few months should be a good indicator of how the season will go

Lots of real estate between Shasta and Big Bear. I guarantee the Golden State will "get some snow". It doesn't matter if it's La Nina, El Nino or Neutral, Oregon's Mexico will get the goods somewhere.
