Conditions are not exactly great in Colorado, but compared to Utah they look downright good based on what I'm seeing in this thread. TR later today on Copper.
No more snow is on the way before you arrive. Rarely do we see this level of unanimity among the weather forecasters for a period up to two weeks.kingslug":2om0o95g said:Well at least its snowing and more on the way. We'll see if my luck continues this year.
The long-range is nothing but ridging starting tomorrow and lasting as far as our models can see. At least through mid-month and probably a bit longer.
In reality, there appears to be a high chance that we'll see no snow or very little snow through at least December 15-20th. When will this pattern change? I don't know. Things look pretty locked in right now. I see no real indications of movement.
And nice work on your part, Tony, for an early heads up that a change in plans may need to be considered. This board is valuable! Now, please bring back some normal Little Cottonwood Canyons winter conditions in time for my February, 2018 trip!Tony Crocker":27x5pgdf said:=D> =D> =D> to both kingslug and jamesdeluxe.
The worst that has happened in my 17 years in Utah was a 27 day inversion circa 2003 - essentially all of January was dry and it was mid-40's/spring conditions at the resorts.kingslug":3rod78ny said:And thankfully we cancelled as its now dumping at Stowe..so off we go this weekend. Imagine being stuck at Snowbird reading Stowe snow reports. Although I do remember one year this happend around March. ,
IIRC, that was the year we had an Epicski Gathering in SLC just after new years and it rained all the way to the top of Snowbird, to say nothing of Snowbasin, where the entire mountain was a tilted skating rink.
