i was at vail/aspen/keystone over christmas.  they had some decent snow while denver was completely dry.

even some parts of the mountains had almost no snow on it.  The snow tends to fall on certain areas because of the mountains.  One mountain was bare while across the valley, the next mountain had a ton of snow.

Hopefully this will be a trend? See this morning’s pattern discussion below. BA

It has way more to do with wind than anything else as to why some peaks appear bare and other are pure white gold.

^^^^  Yeah but you'd need about 2000+ mph winds to blow the heavy wetness around in Tahoe right now.  

Side note, I heard there was a snowboarder death at Mt. Rose yesterday but can't find any news on the internets -- any intel?

It has way more to do with wind than anything else as to why some peaks appear bare and other are pure white gold.

it's the mountains that cause the wind patterns to deposit in certain areas vs others. in addition, mountains cause air pressure changes and temperature gradients which also make it snow more in one area compared to another.

Wind isn't really the root cause, just another by product of the way mountains affect weather patterns.

I think angry was just saying that the wind blows snow (from the windward to the leeward aspects) around the mountains as it falls and after . . . causing wind loading, cross loading, and good stuff like that

still, driving less and planting trees (and/or not cutting them down) and just consuming less can only help slow the process until a solution is found

...just seems like people are making an effort to not give a $hit

global warming is PARTIALLY to blame for why the east coast is receiving so many blizzards. as more water is evaporated, more water can be pushed around to cool down somewhere else/send it to a frozen hell.

yeah, i do remember reading early on in the year that this was expected in a la nina year. early season dumps followed by nothing much at all. they did not mention the warm temps though which is eating away at the great base that the resorts built up early in the year.

just hoping this tide turns soon...

This is my first winter back in Sacramento after being in LA for 2 years.  I really wish I at least went more in December, but I didn't buy my pass till just before Christmas.  The last two times I went were really disappointing.  Unless I'm getting a free ride up there I really have no plans on going until the temperature and some fresh snow drops.

2 weeks of no snow might not seem like a big deal, but its been around 50 during the day and freezing at night.  During the day the snow starts melting and the water sinks into the lower layers filling in all the gaps, then it freezes at night making solid ice.  So its not even like we have spring conditions right now, because it doesn't get freezing at night in the spring.

The only areas that weren't ice at Northstar was some of the areas lower on the mountain where there was enough traffic to create some shavings that turned to mush.

Either we are going to have a little longer of a season when we get some late season snow, or its going to end a total flop.

I blame the earth's new tilt!

it actually did this last year, to a certain extent. It dumped a few times in Dec, then absolutely nothing until late jan...when it dumped 11 FEET.

the seasons between 06 and 09 were just thin all the way around.  I remember going to heavenly in, I think, late march 08 and, other than the top quarter of the mtn, there were bare spots all over

Was up at Tahoe first week in Jan and it was pretty nice.  Haven't been back since but would have thought there would have been at least some snow since then.  Hopefully it dumps in Feb.

I want to hit up some of the places at the resorts I've never been to before.

I've been going to Northstar since I was 5 but there are some places like Sawtooth ridge and some of the other designated glade areas on the map I've never done.  Theres a line that I mapped out by looking at the map where you can go from the top of lookout and end up right back at mid mountain, cutting across that bypass they put in, it looks promising also.

It's so freaking warm right now too............ melting whatever's left.  

But it is nice weather to workout in Sacramento at least. =/




Regardless of anyone's opinion on global warming.... pollution is real and is terrible for everyone.... and dependence on foreign oil is a major weakness for our country.  There's good reasons for everybody to help cut down on fuel consumption and pollution.  Can't very well think of any bad reasons for cutting down on fuel consumption and pollution.

reading through this thread's somewhat depressing! I'll be in Tahoe in 2 weeks..I freakin' booked it like 4 months ago thinking it'd be all pow! smh lol..what a jinx that was! we could've just stayed either at Mt. High or Bear..yay for slushy/brownie snow !

we need to pray to the god of snow! I'm not asking for a blizzard..just fresh pow..that's all.

Yeah I have a number of friends coming out on Feb 11th for a week or so -- although it's not looking good for snow, I'm sure there will still plenty of shennanigans regardless of the weather

Yeah, man.  My buddy hit some crazy ice at Sierra last Saturday, smacked a tree, and sprained his ankle .  Unfortunately he's on crutches but maybe he will recover by the time it snows again.
