Long Range Forecast Discussion:
Longer Range Outlook

As of now, July 2014, we are still on a path to see an El Nino Sea Surface Temperature pattern develop across the Equatorial Eastern Pacific (SSTs near to slightly below average). In fact, as of the last check, all of May and up until the last check of the charts (July), we see a trend to warmer Sea Surface Temperature Anomalies (or at least warmer than average Sea Surface Temperatures (SST's) holding overall) across the eastern Equatorial Pacific (good sign).

Current SST pattern- La Nada

The larger time-scale SST pattern in place right now is still 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.

To reiterate, we expect (and have seen) a trend toward positive SST Anomalies along the eastern Equatorial Pacific as of June 2, 2014 (SST's just west of South America along the equator are warming up, still). The likelihood of an El Nino pattern materializing by this summer and fall are becoming greater, now "likely". Forecasts from other agencies are calling for El Nino conditions to develop this summer and fall as well. This would favor the southwest US (including southern California and across to Taos Ski Valley, even Aspen, Colorado) for heavier rain and snow this fall and mainly winter (2014-2015), after a potentially wet monsoon summer across the southwest US including southern California through Colorado. Northwest US areas, and southwest Canada, along with northern Colorado through Wyoming and the northern Rocky Mountains, should see an active monsoon (thunderstorms and showers) this summer, followed by a drier than average, or near average snowfall winter (2014-2015). This is our outlook for now, and we will update as info becomes available. All of this information is generated in-house.

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.
