Hi! The "Long Range Forecast" amounts on a lot of the Washington State ski areas have been pegged at 0" with "HIGH CONFIDENCE" since mid-fall (when I started checking). It seems like they're not being updated. Example here: https://opensnow.com/location/stevenspass
Hello, it would be nice if I could share the snow forecasts with my friends through Facebook, I discovered this site 2 years ago while on a trip to Colorado and have been telling my friends ever since, but I don't think they have checked it out yet... (we live in Puerto Rico so our site of choice is more surf oriented). Pretty sure if I share the forecast on their page they'll start looking... love your work, thanks!!!!
Historically, when in the season do southern Colorado and northern New Mexico typically start seeing the benefits of El Nino? Unlike northern Colorado, we really need something (however tenuous) to look forward to down here.
On the old site in the Powder Finder section there used to be a long range map with color codes snow accumulations. Is it still somewhere on the site and if not do you know where I might be able to find something similar? Thanks!
what amount of snow base do you consider a good solid base on which to expect a good ski/board day for intermediate and above skiers/boarders?
This may seem really stupid, but the current temps you quote on your website for Lake Tahoe resorts are those at lake level or on-mountain temps? There could be a pretty big swing from the Heavenly gondola base at street level versus temps on-mountain at Tamarack Lodge and higher. There is what, a 2-3 deg F change for each 1000 ft rise? Thanks for clarifying where you are reporting temps at.
With all of the snow Colorado got in the last week, I'm trying to figure out why there isn't more Terrain open. Winter Park got 50" this last week but still has minimal terrain open. How do resorts go about opening terrain? Is there a specific set of guidelines? Is there anywhere that might explain this? Just curious!
Hey Team - Reading Tahoe, Co, UT and PNW trying to piece together what long range/10+ expectations are (Tetons). BA talks about a ridge building back after this weekend, others seem more optimistic. Is the ridge BA talks about simply pushing storms N of Tahoe, but hit other areas out west?
I have always wondered about the forecasted low for a given day. For example, if the low forecast for say, a Tuesday on a 5 day forecast is expected to be, maybe 20 degrees, does that mean that while I'm asleep overnight Tuesday (and into WEDNESDAY after midnight) the low might go down to 20 degrees, or has that already happened? What I mean is that, if the forecast is for Tuesday, has that already happened after midnight of Tuesday (Monday night), or do you mean, Tuesday night while I'm sleeping the low is expected? I know, kind of a weird question, but the reason I ask is because sometimes I see an extended forecast and the low is expected to be so far below freezing on a given night that I feel I need to go out and maybe insulate my hose bibs much better because of that. If I see the very low temperature is expected for "Tuesday", do I need to do what I'm going to do on Monday night because that low will be after midnight and into Tuesday, or will that low not be until Tuesday night(and into Wed)? Sorry if so confusing, and thanks!
Where would you recommend going in US or Canada for the Thanksgiving week?

Hi there. am I able to set up more than two Alert Areas? I tried adding Telluride and Powder Mtn but they don't seem to show up. Thanks!

How do I see prior forecasts? I frequently do not get to see the forecasts on a daily basis.
Joel - how's the snow and weather going to be up around Estes and RMNP for turkey week? Planning some snowshoeing and skiing (if possible) and definitely some sledding with the the kiddos. Thanks!

Hi Joel! Big fan of yours! You are the most reliable guy for the pow forecast!
What is with our luck? I have been a long time reader, about 4 years, and these last few seasons are killing me. Not to mention the drought. I was wondering if there has ever been a pattern that has been this dry for this long. We are in serious trouble if we don't have some above average seasons especially with jerry brown giving all our water to the farms... No worries if this is too much info to mine, I know how busy you get heading into the season but I just opened the account and thought I would let you know I've been a dedicated reader. Thanks!

Not sure if this is a question/comment for you- Purgatory's (Durango Mountain Resort) webcam showing snow accumulations seems too far away from the reader, making the numbers pretty hard to read.
