    It just started snowing! If we get the same kind of crap we did last year I am for sure moving.


    Here is a video of a guy skiing on the south hill here which is not ski resort!

    I bet it is too and at Mt Spokane! It has been raining here this week also which means snow in the mountains. Have you been to schweitzer?Beautiful place.

    I am SO jealous of people getting snow! I wish Atlanta would get *just one* more massive snow dumpage like we did in the blizzard of March 1993 (got a foot plus in some areas).

    Enjoy your snow! :woohoo: :woohoo:

    we got a 100 inches in one month last year. Most places just rebuilt their colapsed roofs from last year or in some cases the whole building. The Walmarts here all had to close because there roofs were not built to with stand the weight. I like snow but after the last two years I will be happy with just a few inches this year.

    Yup. Skied in a near white-out and, aside from the heavy snow (spoiled by central Rockies poof) I had a blast.

    you should ski in McCall Idaho, at Brundage I know they have good powder there. I have noticed both Schweitzer and Look Out get the heavy snow, Mt Spokane I think gets better softer snow some years. Last years snow was pretty light! :)

    We have a nor'easter rolling through and we SWEAR we saw white flakes floating down with the rain yesterday.

    couldn't be though, it was around 50 degrees. Is that possible?

    Totally possible. The snow forms in the clouds, which are much cooler than the ambient air at the surface.
