If "fickle" means "fuck me in the ass", then yes I agree this winter weather has been fickle.

That article left out the sun cycle data. No joke. They say sun radiation is the highest right now for the 10-12 year cycle, which is causing this havoc.

It's even worse when we continue to get dumped on here in the foothills. Numerous times this season I've woke up to a foot or more of snow on the ground only to check the snow reports and find an inch or two on the slopes. That is the WORST. Talk about a tease...

Having a pretty good season up this way. I was riding deep pow while doing a bit of Sunshine slack country on the weekend. I feel for you guys though. At what point is it too late to save the season? (talking out west)
It has been really warm here which means the unpleasant part of our winter has been great! Normally about -15 here in town at this time of the year but it seems to stick around 0. Its going to be -19 tomrrow which will be a shock after it being so warm.

This season is pissing me off though I'm glad I didn't book anything out west yet. Hopefully some snow drops somewhere besides Europe and Japan in the next few weeks.

Well, it depends. It's probably already too late to save the season as a whole. There's no significant change in sight and we need quite a bit of snow just to get some of the better terrain open. People that think one good storm is going to all of a sudden make things all good are kidding themselves. Even in bounds, a lot of these slopes are going to have to go through a slide cycle to get rid of this shitty, rotten base. It might take a good storm just to get back to square one, then hope to build from there.

We could still have a great spring. It's been bleak so far, but March and April often bring the goods for us.
