Thursday Quick Update......

Not much change in the models. Still looks like a fast moving storm that starts tomorrow afternoon and is done by midnight. It will snow heavily during that time. To re-cap: 6-10" at the Village, with 10-15" above 7000 ft. Snow showers should end by Saturday morning for a perfect powder day on opening day. This will be the first time in 4 years I am going to ridge opening day because the base will be so good. Northstar was able to fire up their snow guns last night to add some extra base.

Of note is that Whistler in British Columbia has gotten 8 feet of snow already this month which breaks their all-time November snowfall record with more snow on the way. The Pacific NW Cascades are also starting to get dumped on. This strong jet is expected to shift South into CA in December as the typical El Nino ridge builds in over Western Canada and the Pacific NW, sending storms underneath into CA. This is just the beginning.... BA
