Snow on the way

I was happy to see Adam’s trip report indicating 7 cm of new snow already in the north end of PLPP, and Gord F’s 15 cm at Boulton Creek. 

I’m in Calgary for a few days so I won’t be able to report any snowfall amounts from my deck in Canmore. 

As you can see, forecasts are widely divergent in their predictions. 

The storm is coming from Washington state and will hit the Crowsnest Pass with the lion’s share of the snow. 

While we’re on the subject of weather, I’ve added yet another link on the weather menu, Centre for Hydrology. Thanks to Eric Courtin for sending it over. This data would be of special interest to backcountry skiers, but the Hay Meadow station would be very relevant for cross-country skiers as it is near the Ribbon Creek trails. The data on the Hay Meadow station is currently a week old but that problem should be cleared up soon.

  1. I find that snow-forecast tends to be overly optimistic, but still I can’t help looking at the site and getting all excited!

    • Glass half full …of spirit(s)! Always pity those that don’t ski and the masses that complain about snow. Happy (always) skiing!

  2. Looks like this storm might have some upslope characteristics, so good news for Bragg creek

  3. Bob, I look forward to seeing what is on the hydrology site.
    However, on my Toshiba Tecra laptop the dropdown entries under ‘Weather’ drop right off the screen, instead of scrolling over into a second column. It’s only the new ‘hydrology’ entry the falls off of the earth. I hope that your ‘real’ users don’t have such an issue. Isn’t web CSS wonderful -)
