Alta and NoVT Snow Totals

This was pointed out to me by noted Snow Statistician Tony Crocker.

Snow totals this season to date:

Alta 201"
Stowe 193"
Jay Peak 223"

Even if you think Jay Peak engages is a bit of exaggeration, Stowe is the gold standard in reporting and may well pass Alta by the end of the current storm.

I wonder how long it has been since Stowe was ahead of Alta at this time of year?

Re: Alta and NoVT Snow Totals

They are hurt'n for certain. I have a business trip out there next week, was planning on taking a few extra days and ski but I am thinking I would rather have those days here. Skiing the last week here has been every bit as good as what you would find there except on an epic powder day there - which doesn't seem to be happening.
Don't ski the trees, ski the spaces between the trees.

Re: Alta and NoVT Snow Totals

Was asked multiple times this week where to ski in the EC, people are cancelling their flights out west to take advantage of vacation days that were already spoken for to hit VT this week when it's primed. Knock on wood, pour some out for Jobu, just let the good times and frigid temps roll for another 3 or 4 months.

Re: Alta and NoVT Snow Totals

I said this in another thread but it's barely a winter in the west. I'm wearing flip flops today at 7k. 65 for the high. Rain in Tahoe, 60's in Jackson and Salt Lake.  I'm stoked the east is getting some but I'm worried about the future. A few more years of this will be devastating to the industry.

Re: Alta and NoVT Snow Totals

This is depressing.  All year I look forward to 10 days in SLC for skiing.  Have plane ticket for Feb. 23rd, returning March 3rd but not sure it's worth it this year.  Have a guide all lined up (wife insists I ski with someone) but am thinking of cancelling him and the flight and skiing in NY/VT.  Was going to camp out near PowMow and do some cat skiing but I don't think they are even running that operation this winter.  Friend out there is giving me reports of blue bird days skiing among the rocks.  Yuck.

Stay close to home, hit some places you haven't been in awhile. Put the money into an account for an Alaska trip next year. Or go and have a great time, and maybe the weather changes anyway.

Re: Alta and NoVT Snow Totals

I was out there 2 weeks ends ago.  While it's not classic Utah conditions the worst day was a 7 and the best a 9 in my book. The pattern will change.

I'll be at Stowe next weekend.  Should be great.
