Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

For us, the torture from a distance continues - though I'm glad you are having a great season over the pond.

We remain in lockdown here in the UK, with no real prospect of skiing anywhere soon. Our one remaining glimmer of hope is that Scotland reopens its borders at the end of the month and we can do some (limited, by then) ski touring. Here's hoping!


@Bergmeister I hope you folks are able to get even just a bit of time on the snow!

We've had a pretty decent season all things considered. Somehow the US ski resorts were able to avoid any large COVID outbreaks. I guess the fact that the ski areas really limited indoor dining helped? Hard to say. The only ski resort that has made the news was the outbreak in Whistler at the end of March that caused the resort to close two weeks early.

Hopefully the 2021/'22 season will be a return to some normalcy. Fingers crossed. (Got my first Pfizer COVID shot March 14th and the 2nd dose coming up April 14th.)

Meanwhile... we are hoping that Scotland lifts its international (from England rolling eyes ) travel ban on 26th April and we can get up there for some heather hopping, hiking and ski touring. It's our only hope for some proper turns this season.

Fingers (& toes) are firmly crossed, with a bit of US knocking on wood for good measure! wink

"Hopefully the 2021/'22 season will be a return to some normalcy. "

First time I've ever seen that word - normalcy. Is it common in the USA? (It's "normality" over here).

Yes, common. We'd say it the way he did (perhaps without "some") and for one to use "normality" in that sentence over here would be.....abnormal.

Was at Tahoe and Mt B until yesterday. Perfect spring conditions for 9 days. Heavenly is a better mountain than I remembered.

Sure hope we can cross the pond, or our northern border, next season. But some great road tripping this year has been a more than adequate replacement, for which I have endless gratitude.

More snow coming Friday night into early Saturday morning for a few Cascade mtn peaks. Couple inches for Bachelor and Mt Hood forecast. Some of the Colorado Front Range resorts got up to 11" of snow Thursday night. (Winter Park and Breck did well.)

Mammoth should also get some snow on Sunday. Winter just doesn't want to leave!

Light dusting of snow overnight in the Cascades. Bachelor and Timberline are still open in Oregon. Forecast calls for a few centimeters here and there over the next few days. Might need to dust off the skis Saturday... Very Happy

20F at the Base of Bachelor this morning and some snow flurries. Was 30f at the house this morning. Low pressure out of the Gulf of AK should push through by tonight. Not much snow accumulation. Just flurries and wind.

Bombogenisis is forming off the PNW. Duck and cover folks.

https://www.yahoo.com/news/beast-bomb-cyclone-set-wallop-180413861.html

Satellite imagery indicates that the moisture associated with this storm train will be transported all the way from India and other parts of southeast Asia across the northern Pacific and into the western U.S., according to Senior Meteorologist and Manager of Forecasting Technology Mike Doll said. Energy from former Severe Tropical Storm Namtheun, which churned over the western Pacific, will join forces with a non-tropical system sitting over the northern Pacific on Wednesday, according to AccuWeather Meteorologist Randy Adkins.

Rapid strengthening will result. As the storm comes together a few hundred miles off the coasts of Washington and British Columbia, its intensification could easily surpass the criteria for bombogenesis.

It feels like they are getting more dramatic with terminology these days. The NWS forecast is for a night of reasonably heavy rain up here, with Bachelor getting a few inches of snow, both of which are entirely expected this time of year.

The winter gods are smiling on skiers and riders for the 2021/2022 season.

On Thursday, Mammoth Mountain in California announced it will open a full two weeks earlier than planned thanks to a little early snowfall from Mother Nature.

While the mountain had planned to open on November 13, it is now expected to open on October 29. This is only the 10th October opening in the mountain's history.

Just further north, we've definitely been getting a very wet October - our unnoficial weather station (a bucket on the deck Madeye-Smiley ) has been emptied twice already this month, and we're still not done being weather-bombed or atmospheric rivered yet!
Until the last few days it's been quite cool so hopefully that is all turning to snow somewhere up Whistler! snowHead

Fresh snow overnight at Bachelor. Will warm up later this week. Don't expect it to stick.

Got myself some turns in outside Tahoe, which got smoked in this storm...only grazed a couple of snow sharks in the creamy sierra pow.

Mammoth and Palisades are opening a month early after the October dump. At higher elevations we got >4ft of snow.

Plenty of snow at my parent's place in South Anchorage. Roughly a foot or snow. Alyeska set to open on Dec. 10. Maybe they need to consider opening earlier!

gotonator, So where did you end up for Thanksgiving? Looks like the best conditions were in Lake Louise/Banff. VT looked pretty good other than the winds for the women's WC events. Fingers crossed for some fresh snow in the PNW and Colorado Rockies, Wasatch range here in the not so distant future. Maybe toward the end of the first week of December? Puzzled

Mission Ridge might survive the week for next weekend. we'll see. Not much hope elsewhere...

Need the jet stream to drop a few hundred miles South and let some cold Arctic air mix with all these AR's we seem to be getting in the PNW. 14 day FI forecasts do have some blips of promise, but the next week down South of 47 degrees Latitude is not looking very cold or snowy...
