    Alaska
    British Columbia
    Washington
    Oregon
    Idaho
    Montana
    Wyoming

    HIGHER THAN AVERAGE SNOW (100-125% of average)

    Colorado (from Crested Butte & north)
    Vermont (northern)
    New Hampshire (northern)
    Maine (northern)

    AVERAGE SNOW (95-105% of average)

                  Yep, the predictions here are for mucho precipito. I also have been told by the highest authority (my ancient, farmer neighbor who has a Farmers Almanac) that this year will be cold with a ton of precipitation. Save your strength boys and girls. You're going to need it. Click your heels 3 times and repeat after me - I will buy a season pass this year, I will buy a season pass this year, I will buy a season pass this year.....

                    well , like CAN says , maybe those in the So Cal or New Mexico should hold on that season pass . check out the second link I have in the first post , . southern locations may be in for a drought year ... this is a pattern way favoring those in the northern locations .....


                    "As for our neighbors up north, my research indicates B.C. areas such as Whistler and Fernie may be favored. Should we get a visit to Bellingham on the book? Probably.

                    Farther south, say around New Mexico and So Cal, Joel says La Niņa can make things dryer. In my reading, I’ve even seen the word “drought” crop up in relation to those areas and their influence from La Niņa.

                    As for us here in Colorado, Joel says we’re in the middle of the trends so our northern mountains might get more snow, and southern ranges such as the San Juans may get less. "

                            Indeed. That should make the drive to Bohemia even more worth it.

                            Looks like those of us in PA can look forward to "battle zone" conditions, whatever that means, lol.

                            Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming... "WOW! WHAT A RIDE!!"
