Report From Powderchasers.com
Heavy snow will be falling above 5,000 feet through next week with levels dropping to 4000 feet at times this weekend (Heavy snow Saturday night) before jumping back to 5,000 early next week. Significant snowfall will be falling at upper and mid mountain levels from Whistler BC, through the Cascades of the PNW.
“I DONT SEE ANY BREAK IN THE ACTION IN THE LONG RANGE MODELS” as this pattern may continue to dump significant snowfall in the PNW through Mid December! “I believe we can see 4-8 feet at upper elevations in the next 10 days” WOO HOO, Lower elevations will be much improved in the PNW as well. El Nino that forecasted a dry PNW has not proven it’s punch yet. The Farmers Almanac called for the wet season in the PNW. It is still too early to see how EL Nino will pan out as the strongest influence is not expected until late January/February. Areas that do well with El Nino (Southern San Juans, southern Sierra) are off to a great start so I still buy in to the data. Also, there have been some strong El Nino seasons in history where the PNW had record snowfalls. Patterns can change so areas not receiving the White Room early season can easily reap rewards in the future. We chase powder since in my
book “It is always snowing somewhere”
