It'll snow in Colorado or the season will be a perpetual road trip. Either way.


I'm amateur, believe in joel, he sees the same pattern change coming, but things are still a bit fuzzy. I think we'll have a much better idea of what is happening late next week.

Everyone seems to forget that in the winter of 2010/2011 Colorado saw the highest accumulation of snowfall in over thirty years with blizzard conditions occurring as late as Memorial Day in some areas of the mountains. A-Basin stayed open until July 4th if I remember correctly. The last time that occurred, it was followed by similar droughts that we are seeing now. Relax people, we are having another drought year, it's not the end of the world. I'm sure in ten years when we look back the averages will still pretty much be level.

I am headed to Shasta this weekend, who is in? I've skied it a whole bunch of times but it looks like it solves the current problem here.

Woah, 176 to 218 inches in 4 days ain't bad. Sounds like the total any central or northern CO resort had all of last year. Might make sense to wait until next weekend ya think? Looks like airfare to Reno or Sacramento then can be had for $300.

No one that I know has forgotten that. But also remember the good weather (snow) was farther west than the front range and there were forest fires in the foothills west of Golden & Boulder in March 2010.

The science is big picture stuff. Nothing therein says it will never snow again, rather the reliability of it is going away and the (not so) gradual trend will be that we will see less & less of it as time goes on.

CA maritime snow. Wait 48 hours and it is bomber, unlike the death trap we all skirt around here. Oh wait, there is no snow here. I actually am not going out, but I sure am tempted.

Its called the Pineapple Train I guess. Starts on the islands of Hawaii and flows into Cali and NW bringing lots of moisture.

Thank you weather woman!

Depressing flying back over the mountains from Vegas today. East through North aspects have some snow, everything else is bare. At least if it does snow we are going to be basically starting over with the snowpack.

That is the positive I am trying to focus on. If things go right, it could actually make for a great second part of the winter and spring. Take note of where the snow is now though, because that is gonna be a mess later.

accuweather blog: "Unfortunately, the long-term prognosis isn't good. It really looks as if that particular area of the central and southern Rockies out into the central and much of the southern Plains will get little moisture for quite a while. In other words, the drought may well spread in the coming weeks, not shrink."

Accuweather calling for the drought to continue might be a sign that the pattern actually is changing. \:D/

Just kidding. It's never going to snow in CO ever again.
