Long Range Forecast Discussion:

7 day to 2 week+ forecast (since 1998) - 30 November to 09 December, 2014 - A large and cold Gulf of Alaska low pressure system will be developing for early next week (30th onward into December), delivering significant snow to west coast resorts all the way to Canada, and some even to southern California resort areas (on track). That low pressure system hits the Rocky Mountains afterward, from the northern Rocky Mountains south, with Colorado and northern New Mexico (Taos and Aspen) seeing snow Monday through Wednesday (Dec 1-3). A brief break of sunshine follows, and storms should be pretty regular, so we do not expect a long period of sun/ warming. CM

Longer Range Outlook

November 2014, we are still on a path to see a weak El Nino Sea Surface Temperature pattern hold across the Equatorial Eastern Pacific. Sea Surface Temperature Anomalies yield a weak El Nino pattern across the eastern Equatorial Pacific (El Nino development is on track, but it will be weak, still somewhat favorable for California and the desert Southwest, plus much of Colorado and northern New Mexico).

Current SST pattern- El Nino

A weak El Nino (or possible "neutral" pattern) is expected for this winter, into early 2015.

Current SST pattern- El Nino

Northwest US areas, and southwest Canada, along with northern Colorado through Wyoming and the northern Rocky Mountains, should expect a drier than average, or near average snowfall winter (2014-2015). Tahoe/ Mammoth should see near average snowfall, with near average snowfall also expected across southern California and northern Arizona resorts. CM

We have the highest base elevation for any major ski resort in the Lake Tahoe area. Kirkwood also has the most snowfall this season for any resort in the Sierra. The mountain is often frequented by pro riders and skiers because the terrain is the most diverse of the local ski resorts. You can spend the day turning down a groomed run, shooting the half pipes, jibs, and rails in our terrain parks, bombing down a hair raising steep thick with untracked powder, or hucking yourself off a cornice at the peak. Whatever your preference, Kirkwood can accomodate it. Named one of the top 10 over all resorts in TransWorld Snow, Kirkwood is truly a Tahoe "must ski/ride.” Offering Lake Tahoe's highest base elevation for some of North America's deepest, driest snow. 2,300 acres of wide-open terrain promises something for everyone, from gentle groomed trails to hair-raising steeps and chutes. The resort was rated amongst the top 10 places to learn to ski by USA today and offers innovative First-Time Skier and Snowboarding programs on its wide, gentle slopes. The Children's Center makes skiing more convenient for families and fun for kids. Kirkwood also features a freestyle terrain park, half pipe, tubing hill, 80k of scenic cross country skiing, dog sled rides, and more. Looking for an escape from the frenzy of the modern world? Surrounded in every direction by endless miles of Wilderness and Forest Service Land, Kirkwood offers the unique balance of a world-class mountain with all the creature comforts in a pristine sanctuary.
