Forecaster Founder

I live in Kansas City and love to chase powder.  I started following a local meteorologist, on KSHB 41, Gary Lezak‘s weather blog. He presented an interesting theory that the weather cycles and repeats. I started using it for my ski trips and would get fresh powder nearly every trip. That sparked a serious quest in learning and understanding whether.

I enrolled in the University of Missouri meteorology program, taking classes in atmospheric science, to get a better understanding of the “language” of weather.  I poured through journal after journal and countless scientific studies, all while doing a deep dive into understanding the mechanisms that make the cycling pattern work.

That is what we bring to you.  Advanced science mixed with a little art, to bring the most accurate long-range forecasts.  Now, planing a perfect powder trip you don’t have to shell out a fortune to chase last minute.  Just use our long-range forecast, and book with confidence.

When I’m not at my home mountain of Breck, I like to travel and experience difference ski resorts. My favorites are Whistler, Big Sky, Mt Hood, Alta,  Banff, Revelstoke, Jackson Hole, and Crystal. Beaver Creek is my go-to resort for holidays or ski school with the kids. 

I’ve been blogging since the fall of 2019.  Thanks for visiting and I hope you enjoy our passion for weather–especially powder!




Gary Lezak


Gary grew up in Southern California.  He and his family spent summers vacationing at Lake Tahoe. After high school, Gary went to the University of Oklahoma and graduated with his B.S. degree in meteorology and started a successful broadcasting career.

He got his first big break in 1986 when he became the morning meteorologist at KWTV-TV in Oklahoma City. In 1992, Gary got another big break and became the Chief Meteorologist at KSHB 41.

In the 1980s, Gary discovered that the weather patterns were cycling and accurate weather forecasts could be made using this new technology. A peer-reviewed paper was published in 2018, called Cycling Weather Patterns in the Northern Hemisphere

In the last couple of years, Gary has worked on a weather model that uses the principles of his life’s work.  This patent pending model is one of the tools that will change weather forecasting and you get to preview it first.

Exclusive LRC Model from Weather 20/20

We are the only Ski and Snowboard weather forecasting company to have exclusive access to the LRC (Lezak’s Recuring Cycle) Model.  

Designed by Meteorologist Gary Lezak, the patent pending LRC model, accurately predicts the weather at 100 days, better than the 7-day weather app, on your phone.  That is how we can make hundreds of long-range forecasts with such a high degree of accuracy.

The LRC model forecasts are global.  Below is a forecast for a subscriber’s trip to Hakkiai Sanroku Japan.  The subscriber took advantage of our free Ski Concierge service that is detailed in another section below.

The model uses state of the art technology from radar, satellite, and proprietary data, That data is then incorporated into an algorithm, that is updated daily.

Mike Holm Founder Future Snow

I started using the LRC for ski trips over ten years ago, because I was tired of planning a trip, only to find out 2 months later, there was no fresh snow.  With the help of the LRC, I was able to know 48 days in advance there would be a huge storm.  When we were forecasting the storm, we coined it “Toilet Bowl”, because its unique shape looked like a toilet flushing. 

If you were lucky enough to be in Summit or Eagle counties on February 7-10, 2020, before the roads closed, you were in the “Toilet Bowl”.  60 inches in 5 days.  Will that happen every time?   No, that is a once in every 20 years kind of storm, but it is possible using the LRC.
