Skiing Weatherman: There’s Snow In The West, Only Maybe East

Skiing Weatherman: There’s Snow In The West, Only Maybe East

For Those Still Venturing Out On Snow Shoes, Skinny Skis, Or Skins. On a typical office day in the winter, I often scan web cams from resorts, living vicariously on those days when I can’t be on the snow myself. Now that the coronavirus pandemic has ground the winter sports season to a virtual halt, I still check out the[Read More…]

Skiing Weatherman: Out Like A Lion

March Won’t Be Ending Spring-like. Although I had good intentions, I must confess that I did not get on the snow in the past week.  65 degree temperatures here in Rhode Island early this week didn’t help to inspire, for sure.  Much of the East has had a frustrating season, due to a lack of cold and snow, but the[Read More…]

Skiing Weatherman: Mid-Winter Preview

Skiing Weatherman: Mid-Winter Preview

Herb Is Bullish On The Second Half Of This Season. The past week has been another relatively quiet one over the eastern half of the country in terms of fresh snowfall while the Pacific Northwest and British Columbia have again been targeted with substantial new inches. The lack of snow over the Midwest and East has surprised me to a[Read More…]

Skiing Weatherman: Winter Is Delivering

Skiing Weatherman: Winter Is Delivering

Looks Like A Promising Couple Of Weeks. It has been a terrific week of skiing and riding in most of the U.S. and Canada and I have been lucky enough to squeeze in a couple of days. Loon Mountain on Tuesday was wonderful; miles and miles of packed powder and views of the White Mountains that are hard to beat.[Read More…]

Skiing Weatherman: For The East, Enter Winter

A Comeback For The East And Midwest, More Pow For The West. I spent the first two days of this week with fellow members of the North American Snowsports Journalists Association at Windham Mountain,  NY, where the crew did an outstanding job of providing a fun surface in the wake of a mid-season meltdown last Sunday. One of the presentations[Read More…]

The Skiing Weatherman: Changeable East, Snowy West and Mid-West

The West Continues To Luck Out, Cold Coming East By Month End. Despite a wildly changeable run of weather in the East recently, I managed to get two days of wonderful winter turns in early this week. It snowed on Monday at Sugarbush as I skied packed powder with my son. Wednesday at Killington surfaces were just about perfect packed[Read More…]

Skiing Weatherman: Global Pattern Bringing Warmth Then Cold Mid-Month

Happy New Year To All Of My Fellow Senior Sliders! In the two weeks since my last post, the western slopes of the U.S. and Canada have been the unquestioned winners in terms of fresh snow. Just prior to Christmas, the trail counts from British Columbia south to the Sangre de Cristos of New Mexico were on the lean side,[Read More…]

Skiing Weatherman: All Is Calm

Skiing Weatherman: All Is Calm

Except The West Coast. Last week I discussed the role of upper level troughs as they relate to our insatiable appetite for fresh snow, both natural and machine made. Most of the time, troughs are indeed our friends but that doesn’t necessarily mean that upper level ridges are the enemy. The influence of ridge is just like the old cliche[Read More…]

Skiing Weatherman: How A Trough Works

And Regional Forecasts From West To East. Had my first day on snow last Thursday at Jiminy Peak in the Berkshires. It was a wonderful day on nearly perfect snow: chalky packed powder with some windblown pillows of powder along the edge of several trails. Today, I thought I would tell you about the jet stream feature to look for[Read More…]
