Happy New Year

I hope everyone had a great New Year’s Eve Celebration last night.  Let’s hope the new year brings a lot of snow.  We are going into the Northern Part of the Pattern soon, but let’s take a look at some of the Pow from yesterday’s snow.

Aspen Highlands Snowbird Utah Beaver Creek Vail Crested Butte Mt Bachelor Steamboat Colorado Alyeska Alaska Timberline Oregon


From the Cascades to the Sierras, not much going on.  Colorado and Utah, storm wraps with a few inches throughout the day as the storm exits.


Here we go again.  The next storm arrives to the PNW Sunday.  Take a look at these side-by-side comparisons.  These are the latest GFS for the oncoming system, and they are compared with the last time they came through.  As you would expect, the Jan 3-4 storms are larger, due to the time of year.  They also behave the same in how the lows track.  Check out the other features that are similar too, like the east coast storms and the storm south of Greenland.  It’s hard to believe that the weather has been repeating throughout all of history and we are just now figuring it out. 

Well, FutureSnow has figured it out.


I will dive into this storm more tomorrow.  Keep an eye on the calendars and the predictions.  2021 was better than 2020, so let’s hope 2022 is better than ’21.  Over half of the ski season is still to come, I am looking forward to chasing these storms–there are some really great storms to come.  Stay tuned!
