Thanks for all the Forecasting! Just wondering if you have any intell on the forecast for the Colombia’s/Revelstoke area for the next few weeks?? Also can i get a custom forecast for the next 3 weeks? How do i contribute?
Hi Matthew: It’s a bit tough that far out with the long term models. Currently a ridge is over us for most of next week that looks to break down around February 17th. Low pressure is likely to come into the Pacific Northwest and Sierra in this time frame. I think BC will be in the mix also but hard to pick resorts at this point. The signal is in favor of storms but not specific. High pressure might take over again on the 20th or 21st? Are you already booked? Could you book last minute? Sometimes I suggest SPokane as a hub and chase from there. In the lower 48 I like Salt Lake as a hub. Donations are at Powderchasers.com Donate button at top. For $50 I offer custom forecasts or at least like to spend more time with powderchasers. I don’t however ignore the forums. PCS

Summary I predicted significant snow for Wolf Creek (excess of 15 inches) but not the 3 feet they picked up in the past 2 days. It’s not surprising with SW winds, cold temperatures (They are often on the warmish side), and models that nailed the location of heaviest moisture. … Continue reading
Summary The Sierra is waking up with 5-10 inches for most mountain ranges through late Thursday. If you want double digits for Thursday, also consider the southern San Juans of Colorado. New Mexico could bring some surprises especially Santa Fe. The weekend looks cold with more light or moderate snow … Continue reading
