Question El Nino 2012 (fingers crossed!)

Well I know were not even out of July yet but if you search El nino on Google News. You can find articles around the world suggesting a Moderate-Weak El Nino. Ive also read articles from carribean countrys suggesting concern that this season might be a repeat of 97. Temps in the the pacific waters are forecasted to be warmer then they have in recent years. Hope this all pans out for us out west as last season was horrible. Last time we had a good el nino in AZ we got a 10 ft+ dump over 3 days at Snowbowl and Sunrise.

I'm lukewarm on El Nino myself. Seems like it sucks about as much as it delivers around here. Though since it's supposed to be weak, it could be a good thing. Hopefully it doesn't skunk the Northern spots like it so often does.

The rumor is that it will suck the PNW while delivering it to lower California.

All I know is that the last two years have been La Nina and they both sucked the big hairy root in B.C.

Anything else will be an improvement.

The last 2 years in the canadian rockies have been great (easter bc included). I kinda expect next year to suck a bit in alberta/eastern bc.

SSV had record snow this year.

Just check the Noaa update and its looking like SW/Cali is going to be Epic this winter. check the link for the outlook-Climate Prediction Center - Seasonal Color Maps This just made my day right here. soo pumped. Snow wolf I hope this means you will be coming out here to AZ again. If this all pans out id think Feb-March might be a epic time to hit Backside of Snowbowl. Im leaving AZ in 2 years and I wanna ride Freemont peaks before I move. Sounds like this might be the winter to do it.

WOW those chutes would be incredible! Im for sure in if you wanna hit the BC, I can borrow some BC gear from a friend. Last year sucked major at bowl man with all the low snow. I was prolly there about 10 times last season and I can recall 2 of those times seeing snow on heart prairie. The year they start blowing snow they dont have to, Go figure.
