Hey Joel! Loved your buddy Joel's video from Denali! WOW! A friend to whom I was showing off your site pointed out that you are predicting snow this weekend for the San Juans, and show some potential accum at Wolf Creek but you are predicting nothing for Silverton, Purg and Telluride. Can you explain? Thanks, Jeff PS Can you send me another powder sticker for my new poles??? PO 3754, Telluride 81435â€¦.
What is your forecast for having skiable snow over Thanksgiving at Copper Mountain?
As a resident New Yorker, where does Vail fall within your forecasts for Colorado? Does it fall amongst the "Along i-70" forecasts?
Why no powder alerts for Steamboat?
Joel: Bruce's Trail at the west summit of Rabbit Ears Pass will be groomed for nordic as soon as there is enough snow and it is often the first to open for us Front Rangers. Does it receive approximately the same snow amount as the top of Mt. Werner? How can I keep tabs on the snow depth up there? Is there a SNOTEL site or webcam there?
Is it common for Utah to be this dry at the end of October? When do they start seeing big storm push in? Thanks
joel, do you know about geoengineering and the site geoengineeingwatch.com ??? a lot of science about climate modification there might be worth checking out if you have not been informed on subject ? the plant is changing fast.....
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
