Does wind affect snow fall?
We are expecting a big storm on saturday night through sunday morning with strong winds coming from East and I was asking myself which side of the mountain is going to get the more snow? Should I ski the west side of the mountain which is going to be hidden from the wind or I should brave the wind and ski more powder on the east side. Thanks a lot
I dont think anyone has ever interpreted this forum in this way before, nice work.
generally the upwind side will have snow taken off of it and deposited on the leeward side, but i'm sure there are a thousand variables that can mess with this
also I'd say you should ask a moderator to move this to a different forum, this is Site Discussion so it's used for talking about the website itself and therefore gets way fewer readers
i actually only saw this thread because i accidentally came to this forum haha
All times are Eastern (-5)
