Skiing: Best Next Weekend

January 24, 2016

10pm Sunday…

What timing!  It rained part of last week at the ski resorts, then snow showed up just in time for the weekend.  It looked like this at 9am from our camera at the top of Mt. Hood Skibowl

The same sequence repeats for the last 7 days of the month…warmer and occasionally rainy weather Tuesday-Thursday.  Then much cooler Friday-Sunday.  Yes, looks like another great weekend of skiing ahead

Here in the lowlands it’s pretty obvious the dry days are going to be Monday and Wednesday.  A surface low could bring a one day return to “December-like” conditions either late Thursday or Friday.  I’ll be keeping an eye on that.
