Live from NYC!

New York City is where you can find me today, at none other than the tree lighting! (Look for me on TV!) I bet you want to know about Mountain Creek status and snow/cold, correct?

Mountain Creek:

Well, as I thought, they pushed back their opening date to the 13th which should be actually be an AWESOME opening because north and south should open with ample terrain! Snowmaking will resume Friday and go non stop through the weekend and some natural snow will fall adding to the base for opening day! It's going to be an amazing December with trails rising quickly.

There is nothing major to talk about snow wise right now as cold air will dominate the region but for Friday a front will passing through and some of us above 1,000 feet may pick up some minor accumulations adding to the 6-14 inches we have already had so far this season. At lower elevations and dusting is possible. As for Sunday of this weekend a clipper system will come through and could also put down a few inches at the highest elevations but overall lower accumulations, although I have seen these storms explode at the last second upping the snow amounts.

GFS (Sunday)

EURO (Sunday):


It does get cold and stays in a cold weather pattern till Christmas, a warm up is possible for the holidays but cold will return. Personally I believe we will see a pattern reversal the first week of January toward mild and stormy conditions. Remember don't kill the messenger.
