Our friend Chris Tomer of Onthesnow.com has released his 2017 – 2018 winter weather predictions. Tomer, who is based in Denver, CO has a long track record of reporting accurate weather forecasts so take note.
Keep in mind this is an early-season, broad-brush forecast. It’s important to watch ocean temperatures in September and make adjustments. This forecast might be helpful if you’re booking a Christmas or winter ski trip. The Intermountain West is trending in a wet direction, but the wildcard for early season ski trips will hinge on temperature trends. Early season temps can be too warm for some resorts.
