Fourth Rule of long range snow forecasts: (most likely from) Joe Sobol - "We are experiencing zonal flow which will prevent significant moisture across Colorado. Any storm systems will be brief and fast-moving ..."

Personally, I don't believe my speculations have any effect on the weather. But that's just my opinion. Maybe you're a snow god and can deflect storms with an optimistic comment, I don't know...

Wolf Creek has gotten 18" from this storm so far.

Speaking of Wolf Creek, I thought it would be interesting to see what their lift tickets were running these days and came across their stellar deal for a 3-day pass compared to buying three individual days...

Parts of the Wasatch got 60" of snow out of the last storm. Even in the valleys, snow totals ranged from 15.2 inches at the airport to 30" on some of the benches.

We had to drive through it on the way to Boise.

Some bad news from the climatologists. I guess denial is still an option.
http://green.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/11/13/water-supply-in-a-warming-world-part-2/
The bad news is that climate change is likely to lead to smaller snowpacks in mountain ranges and even on lower ground throughout the Northern Hemisphere, from the Cascades, Rocky Mountains and Sierra Nevada in the western United States to the Himalayas and the Urals on the other side of the globe.

The study by Noah Diffenbaugh, a Stanford University climate scientist, suggests that within two generations’ time, these areas will be experiencing years of low snowfall far more often than they have in the past three decades.

The weather table in this week's edition of the BV paper is both telling & discouraging. It shows that historical snowfall in Buena Vista (8000') for Oct. & Nov. combined is 8.9". But as of the 19th, the grand total for this fall season is only 0.3"! :shock: And I sure haven't seen another snowflake in the four days since then. 'Really hope something BIG happens on this front -- and SOON! [-o<
