Joel, I have a crazy idea.
Hey Joel, Are you done skiing for the year or will you make it to A-Basin tomorrow due to the snow I thought last Thursday was our last powder day Ha ha
Gratzo, Now that your forecasts are wrapped up for the season, I find myself at a loss when looking for reliable weather information. Is there a particular site you would recommend to us 'commoners' when looking at daily forecasts for rides, hikes, etc? I know there are plenty of options, so I'm not sure where to turn for accurate weather in the high country. Strong work this season! Hank
Hey Joel, I love the reports... I know this is an odd question, but any prediction on how long you think a place like a basin could stay open this year with the current snow conditions and weather trends going forward?
Hey Joel I'm curious as to why Loveland saw so much more snow than A Basin saw with this past storm. And why does the Luv generally collect higher snow totals throughout the season? Thanks for a great season, can't wait for the next! Harrison
Hey Joel Great to meet you at Loveland on Thurs it was a great day I know your pretty much done forecasting and want to confirm that is why you have 0 in all days sun through tues and those will all show 0 from here on out Also do you have a site I can go to to figure out this wed thurs forecast? Do you think one of those days could be pow pow or just a few inches Thanks Brian
Joel, Lovelands snow stake is almost fully covered now meaning 14-15 inches already and its not even 2pm I chose to go to work like a dummy as there was only 4 this morning and your forecast for today was 1-3 so I thought like you said an upslope wouldnt amount to much for ABay and Loveland. This is why I asked the question to you regarding the differences in forecast that I just cant understand. What the heck did the others see that made them forecast the 6-10, 7-13, etc... for A-Bay and Loveland when its an upslope? They did talk of banding snow which apparently happened but you were not seeing that? Dont get me wrong I am not upset with you in anyway and appreciate all your efforts and any snow is good snow for our state I just wished I was in it now!!!!!! I wonder if tomorrow will be good or basic leftovers Will this go on all day and night? Thanks Bummed Brian
Sorry Joe, They are talking aborapahoe Basin and Loveland ski areas
Joel Why is it that news and others are calling for 4-8 and 6-10 today during the day and Your calling 1-3 I don't understand the difference Thanks brian
Joel, how does the snowpack this season compare to last season and the mean/median for CO. Any season end graphs so we can see how this season turned out?
