the word on the block, is that meadows is thinking about opening on Halloween, but so far it looks like there not getting enough snow, but you never know maybe a huge snowstorm will bring a foot or so. But i know this because my friends sister works at meadows as a ski instructor. Its either then or nov 16th or later. Timberline is just waiting on enough snow to open.
yea yea bro for surrrrreeee, get HYPHY, no but no joke they are so far looking into opening on october 26th, instead of halloween, or maybe even on halloween. we should organize a madd NS gathering if this stuff goes down!
Meh, its not all melted. But the weather lately has been on the warmer side, which sucks for us. The base is completely gone, but the upper mtn still has a lil bit of snow. We just need some weather to roll through, and get rid of the damn ridge of high pressure thats keepin us so warm.
the truth is that were just getting really unlucky without getting any sort of a cold front come through, at the same token meadows could have opened in mid oct if they got a massive cold front, which we did but just for a few days and then it all went to waste without anything coming behind it. Theres nothing in the forecast, no rain or anything, just sun. ill be suprised if meadows opens on nov 16th like they plan
i would say meadows best case scenario opens 1st of december
the ten day forecast is empty so best case scenario it starts snowing right after that, then it would take them at least two weeks to be combletly set up, add that up you get a possbile opening of november 27th
ok well look at it this way, the news anchors didnt say anything in particular about a 2 feet storm at mt hood when it came almost out of no where in mid of october, maybe this weekend something like that will happen, if it does that would be soo sick
but Paul Yeager did. check it out, he says that the current satellite image "shows a couple of the upcoming
storm systems--a couple in what is most likely a series of more than
six storms during the next couple of weeks."
