      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

I particularly like this part of that discussion:

 

THE STRONGER SOLUTIONS HAVE BEEN MEETING THE METEOROLOGICAL

DEFINITION OF A BOMB.

Here it is. That's Japan to the northeast and the Mariana's due south. Latest jet stream forecasts show jet picking it up and sending it our way. Big question is where the remnants will track and what will be left over of the front moving in on Sat/Sun?

Actually, if you read the full weather discussion that this was from, here , they are more concerned that it will develop into a wind storm. Pineapple Express Death typically comes straight up from the southwest, forming over warm waters and bringing high freezing levels. This low would track (supposedly) closer to AK before coming to us. Coupled with forecast FL's of 6500', we could see some flooding but it should generally bring snow at higher elevations, nothing like the scenario of last Nov (thank god).

By next tuesday/wenseday we could be seeing this pacific bomb tracking just south of Vancouver island. Possibly 975-980mb, we maybe in for some exciting weather!! Gusts up to 65-70mph? lets hope. hehe

 

Get ready for a stormy October and lowland snow by november. All of this while the eastern 1/3 of the nation gets torched by record warmth. =)

All the pros are saying classic La Nina. In September the lowest average tropical SST (sea surface temperature) on record (57 years) was posted. This of course is an indicator of a very strong La Nina pattern.

 

We should be in for an exciting winter weather season. I hope y'all bought your passes early and stored up some time at work!

Given current currency exchange, I think WB is gonna hafta start some intense incentives to lure folks up. Though I see that on their webpage the Edge Card cost for Americans is significantly lower than Canadians'.

Just check the terrain/average-snowfall/lift-capacity/vert to ticket-price ratio for any Eastern resort of your choosing and WB looks like a bargain at full-price, much less with the 1/2 price gas-station ticket deal.

 

Hopefully they continue the promo in 07/08
