Welcome to the Official NS Almanac, Volume I.
In the overly optimistic summary, big snow, desolate ski areas, and skierman has positive karma (unexpected but proven true). What a season 2020-21 is shaping up to be.
This year is looking like a la Nina so fuck yeah! If you don't know what that means then better read up. https://www.noaa.gov/news/la-nina-develops-during-peak-hurricane-season
Also I've heard some of you thinking this season might be similar to post 2008/09 recession with less crowds. These two combinations could make for an epic year for some of you.
Honestly even with all the reservations and uncertainty I don't think it's unreasonable to assume there will be less skiers this year. People are and will continue to be afraid to travel. People may be travel restricted. Many people won't have money to splurge on skiing. Even restrictions on resort amenities could deter folks from traveling cuz we all know half the jerries aren't there for the snow. This could be a really good year for locals but shitty for resort profits.
Until next year folks. Enjoy.
