Hi Joel, I know its still 7 days out and you probably cant give me much details as its a bit too far out but I have a Jury Duty scheduled for but Tues Feb 3 and I do have 1 chance to postpone this but I need to let them know 5 days prior. I do NOT want to miss a BIG POW day on Tues Feb 3 for Jury duty as that would just be WRONG! But on the other hand I would also prefer to get it over with if its not going to be a BIG POW day What do ya think for Tues Feb 3? should I postpone Jury duty due to big POW or just get it over with? Thanks -Brian

Joel, I'm heading out to Aspen the week of Febuary 22nd. I read all of your blogs and fresh powder doesn't look very promising right now. Any predictions that they will get some decent powder by then?! Thanks!

BC - Any changes with your New England snowfall totals? How strong will the winds be and is there a particular region that may see less winds? mike

Can you please include the state the resort is in in your powder finder results in iPhone app? I'm just not familiar with ALL the resort names. (Perhaps even allow sorting by location) and it makes parsing the info difficult. Thanks!! --hoping for snow

I'm getting email alerts for 12"+ around southern VT and NH on Monday, but the forecast dashboard is only showing a few inches at the same areas. I only get so many sick days per year, what am I to believe? Thanks! :-)

Joel: Prematurely, I admit, I asked you about El Nino/La Nina for the winter of '14-'15 and you responded "too early to say." Now that we have data on whether or not there was/is an event and we see this January "snow drought" (IMO), especially again in California are there lessons to be learned? I would appreciate hearing your thoughts. Thanks, Jonathan aka jtele

Hey BA - Given the unfortunate boring news this week for Tahoe, would love to hear your opinion on temperature trends/climate change issues in Tahoe in one of your near future posts. Seems to me its not only the lack of precip that we've had, but also the freakishly warm temps tahoe has been seeing. Do you feel that potentially in 15-20 years at this rate we might only see rain in most of tahoe? Things like this would be interesting to see your opinion on. Might even be a chance to plug Protect our Winters!

Still picking our destination in Vermont for this MLK weekend- surprised that Stowe looks to be on the lighter side for Sunday night's prediction (2-4") while some other mountains are predicted for more than twice as much snow (Burke at 6-10"). I realize it's a few days away, but are those reflecting a general trend, or is it still pretty uncertain? Thanks

I just checked NOAA and snow that was being forecasted for the Tetons has really changed for this weekend. They were calling for snow Sat - Monday. That all seems in question now. Maybe even dry Sat. & sun. What do you think the 4 or 5 best days will be in WY and what types of amounts are possible? When would you go? Mike

Any chance you guys are going to add British Columbia reporting anytime soon ? Revelstoke etc ? Even just generalized long range wide area trends would be great. thanks for a great info site and program - I've been all over open snow ever since you started ! Bo Simmons Atlanta GA

Hi! I live near Jefferson, CO, between Kenosha Pass and Fairplay, CO on US 285. We get a lot of wind in this area (the three previous days we had gusts over 100 mph and steady breezes of ~60 mph). My meteorlogical question for you is this: Why? Is it merely due to low pressure located over South Park, or does the geography couple with the pressure variations to cause such high wind conditions? Is there something I can watch for to aid in predicting these instances of high winds? If you can recommend any pertinent reading materials, I will gladly avail myself of your suggestions. Thank you very much for entertaining these questions! Warm (and Windy) Regards, Cathy

Just a suggestion since I visit the area alot. You should try to find a meteriologist that covers the Jackson Hole and Sun Valley area as these are two world known resorts, Jackson for its very high snowfall and Sun Valley for being the original ski resort in America. There are also alot of mountians in the nearby vicinity of Wyoming, Idaho and Montana that have the same weather patterns. Just a suggestion, I love this service already but I do believe these resorts deserve the attention that those with a meteriologist get.
