Long Range Forecast Discussion:

7 day to 2 week+ forecast (since 1998) - 30 April to 10 May, 2014 - High pressure ridging aloft builds in across the western US Sunday through most of next week, with some rain and mountain snow across the northwest US and northern Rocky Mountains Sunday and Monday (27th-28th), mostly sunny across all areas Tuesday through Wednesday or Thursday (29th-30th, possibly May 1st), then low pressure moves into the northwest US again late next week, with mountain snows across the Cascades and northern Rocky Mountains then. Winter is not over yet for Western US ski areas, but it seems to be tapering off, in general. CM

Longer Range Outlook

As of now, April 2014, we are continuing to be affected by an ENSO-Neutral, or La Nada Sea Surface Temperature pattern across the Equatorial Eastern Pacific (SSTs near to slightly below average).

Current SST pattern- La Nada

The larger time-scale SST pattern in place right now is a cool phase PDO, or negative PDO, which stands for Pacific Decadal Oscillation. This is a more long term pattern (decades), and it has made any recent years El Nino SST patterns weaker.

We expect the ENSO Neutral, or La Nada pattern (almost a La Nina) to continue, though in the last 30 days we have seen more of a trend toward positive SST's along the eastern Equatorial Pacific. We are now seeing a slight trend toward El Nino, and the forecasts from other agencies are calling for El Nino conditions to develop this summer and fall. This would favor the southwest US for heavier rain and snow this fall and mainly winter, after a potentially wet monsoon summer across the southwest US including southern California through Colorado.

We will keep this outlook updated as more information becomes available. If you want to know when the snow is coming (and be able to set unlimited alerts for any resort), within 5 minutes or less of us (our our sources) entering the data into any of our forecasts, be sure to download the app.
Wyoming Next-door to Yellowstone Park Sleeping Giant, right next door to the East Entrance of Yellowstone National Park, one of America's oldest ski areas. Sleeping Giant was organized as a ski area in 1936-1937 and is well known for consistently abundant natural snowfall, with ideal temperatures for skiing and non- existent wind, where the scenery is breathtaking, unsurpassed anywhere on earth. Our slopes receive up to 500 inches of fresh snow with an average of 300 inches each season with lots of sunshine and blue sky thrown in for good measure. Our fleet of grooming equipment and operators keep the slopes in shape for enjoyable skiing for people of all ages, from beginners to experts Two ski lifts rise 500 vertical feet from a base elevation of 6,700 feet. Seventeen trails for all levels of` skiing proficiency range up to 3/4 mile in length.
