Even better - el'nino modoki looling less and less likely -
It really is a case that we don't really know. Canonical or Eastern Pacific Niño (conventional) is a possibility, which would correlate to the NOAA chart posted by @liv2ski. Modoki is also a possibility as well still, which would favour the Eastern half of the United States. And then there is also a chance of a basin-wide event, which could make for an amazing year for Mammoth, but maybe a bit better further north. It really is also a matter of where the -EPO ridge (high off the coast of Western Canada and Alaska) sets up, with the sub tropical jet passing south into the Sierra Nevada. So could be a good year for Californian snowfall, but for the rest of the Western Rockies, potentially quite dire IMHO.

That looks like a teensy bit more than a dusting.

I think it will take a good storm, and usually a BB WROD is better than MM. I am fully armed with a quiver of rock skis however.

We are going up no matter what. I just set our expectations for "better than Mt. High":roflmao:Unfortunately no rock skis here, just a quiver of 1.
