7 day to 2 week+ forecast (since 1998) - 22 December to 01 January, 2014 - COLORADO/ NEW MEXICO: All next week (22nd onward) we expect a more favorable northern storm track (all Christmas week), for better chances of better than light, and more powdery/ cold snow, due to the colder storm origins from out of the Gulf of Alaska and crossing Canada on the way in. After Christmas week and toward the end of 2014, we expect storm-blocking higher pressure ridging to build in across the area, with more sunshine and less potential for any snow. NORTHWEST US and SOUTHWEST CANADA: High pressure pushes in across the area from the southwest US and eastern Pacific much of Christmas week, with some tail ends of storms (warmer southern portion) moving through, causing rain showers and higher elevation snow showers, with mostly rain at and below ski resort base elevations (snow level issues, rain mix at base elevations) across the Pacific Northwest including north Idaho ski resorts. Southwest Canada (Alberta/ British Columbia) should see less snow level issues and more snow potential than Inland Northwest ski resorts, all through Christmas week. It looks like the Inland Northwest may see a white Christmas, showing up a day or so before Christmas in the form of a colder storm (Christmas eve/ Christmas snow for Coeur d'Alene/ Spokane). TAHOE-MAMMOTH; It looks like high pressure ridging may deflect any storms to the north most of next week and through Christmas, for mostly sunny conditions, though we have seen some great snow this season as opposed to the last 2 seasons of dryness. SOUTHWEST US AND SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA; Mostly dry with high pressure ridging dominating for Christmas week and possibly through the end of the year. This outlook includes southern California resort areas like Mountain High. UTAH looks like it may get clipped (northern Utah) Christmas day (or the day before/ day after), but mostly sunny skies may dominate all week under high pressure. WYOMING/ MONTANA We expect high pressure to set up across the southwest US, with storms again targeting the Pacific Northwest/ southwest Canada, and Wyoming/ Montana, for a nice freshen up of colder snow and temperatures before the major holiday, and during it.

Longer Range Outlook

December 2014, we are in a weak El Nino Sea Surface Temperature pattern across the Equatorial Eastern Pacific. (prior forecast-->) 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 (Tahoe-Mammoth/ SoCal) and the desert Southwest, plus southwest 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
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.
