As the first sprinkles of snow fell on Western Slope mountains this week, meteorologists predicted an El Niño event to hit the United States this winter.

That could mean anything and everything for Colorado.

“Skiers and snowboarders especially look at snowfall history in the Sierra Nevadas and Pacific Northwest and think that El Niño is a huge snow producer for the entire West,” said Noah Molotch, a professor of geography at the University of Colorado Boulder and the director of the university’s Center for Water, Earth Science and Technology. “It can be, but statistically we have no evidence to say that it will.”

Perhaps we'll see a real winter this year. It's been too long.

Story starts with detailed discussion then ends too soon imo.




This is what the topic should get to http://www.cpc.noaa.gov/products/pre...p?lead=4&var=p


Above average snow forecast for southwest CO. Average elsewhere.

I'll take average vs what we had the past two seasons.

“Colorado straddles the jet stream as it runs across the northern and southern tiers of the United States, and scientists have not been able to find corollary data between El Niño events and the snow conditions in Colorado.”

Sure hope so!

Grew up here and the I70 ski areas were our stomping grounds-

Now I'd rather go to Wolf Creek or Monarch for the few days of skiing I do anymore. Much more relaxing.

I think they said that last winter too. And talked about a summer way more wet than average.
