Joel, maybe I'm living in fantasy land, but it looks like the Madden Julian Oscillation is entering a good phase and the Arctic Oscillation is tracking negative right now. In the past I noticed that these two factors combined usually equal good snow for Colorado. With the storm door opening starting next Tuesday/Wednesday, does this normally correspond with a 2-3 week storm window to start base building at the resorts? I know there is no way to tell 10+ days out, but just curious on this one.

So today in NYC we had our first taste of the winter---cold, rainy and temps approaching 50 degrees. I know Whiteface reported up to 2 inches this week, the first (they claim) in the NE. Any predictions for this winter? How about when the reporting can begin?

Joel, Would it be possible to maybe have an option for longer (more frames) time lapse views? maybe double or triple what you have now. I just noticed that at least at breck they upgraded their webcams (vista haus at least). Would be pretty cool to see a longer view. Thanks, Chris

Your forcast at Vail is exactly for what location? Mid Vail? or Mtn top. I am using your temps and assuming they are not for the base area?

Hey Joel, I recently heard that one of the few predictors for a snow year is early season snowfall. Apparently, the more significant snow Colorado receives in September or October correlates to bad snow years. Have you heard of this before? Or is this just pure malarkey?

Joel, Yes, it is great to hear you talking about snow again! However...What do you think the forecast is looking like for the Tour of the Moon on October 4? Do I need to plan on some cold weather cycling gear?
