March Madness

March Madness

Posted on Feb 23, 2012 by in SNOWBOARDING, WEATHER

We all should feel pretty lucky here in the Pacific NW regarding how this season has gone so far. While most of North America hasn’t seen much snow fall at this point, we have had over 100 inches of snowfall, and plenty of super fun powder days. I was just thinking about how as of lately the storms seem to lineup perfectly for weekend pow days. Great for those who are working hard, not so great for those who are hardly working (Chris). But regardless if you have a job or not, the coming months look to be lining up to show some significant snowfall.

Meteorologist Steve Pierce predicts, “a prolonged period of below normal temperatures and a ton of snow for the Cascades! Just like last February and March, the mountains appear ripe for some great late winter skiing.” I’ll take that to heart and say things are looking pretty decent as we head into spring.

Let’s take a look at the predictions for this coming weekend:

Snowforecast is predicting 16.2 inches between Friday and Sunday.

NOAA is predicting 21-32 inches between Friday and Sunday.

NWB is predicting 20 inches between Friday and Sunday.

Either way, it looks like snow. See you on the hill!
