Looks like the weather gurus are divided on how our winter will shape up for the Pacific NW.   Most are saying an average winter: El Nino Neutral. 

I am hoping to use all the skis I salvaged for the kids from yard sales this Summer. 

Granting that most predictions are wrong by nature, what are you hearing about this comming winter in your area?

I'm in Tennessee and they couldn't guess our weather if their lives depended on it.

Another source saying that the Northwest is in for an average (whatever that is) winter.  Drought is predicted for the Midwest and tons of cold snow for the East Coast (lucky dogs) and a wet South.


Normal winter for us in the NW usually means skiing by mid November thru Spring Break.

Still though the buggest way to look like a fool is to claim to know what the weather will do so I guess its still sort of a crapshoot. I'm waiting to buy the season's ski pass.

I don't think we're going to have epic snowfall. spring skiing will be dicey this year.
