    It's the begin of Fall. The polar Vortex is not yet at it's full strength, which would result in more Westerly weather, but some colder air is already available and if you are in the trough it can get cold.

    meridional weather patterns are quite Common in fall. And right now we have a perfect example of that with a northerly flow.

    Detailed discussion with ECMWF, CanSIPS and CFSv2 models. The former 2 are predict less than normal snow, the latter predicts average to above average.

    Pretty hazy outlook. The only solution - put up your offering in the Ullr thread. It’s a better snow indicator than ENSO, I’ve done the analysis.

    All I can say about forecasting a coming winter is, whenever I ask old timers around here what they think is coming, the answer is always “who the hell knows”

    There's some old farmer in Europe that make winter predictions based on plants. I can't find his forecast.

    Curious, why end of March for BBI Euro? Seems kind of late from a North American perspective. Wouldn't February or early March be a better bet for wintery conditions in the Alps?

    February is Euro winter vacation . Prices go up, crowds manifest, hotels are more full, travel can get more of a hassle (trains get overbooked).
    But hey, if you want to go early-mid March, convince of bunch of likeminded weirdos and go. vendul will see that all is covered.

    Personally, I have family commitments at the middle of March, so I can't go early-mid March.

    This years prognosis is something like green christmas and low snow throughout april.

    I counter that, 3 bad seasons in a row are odd!
    20 21 was one of the best winters ever. I skied pow from September to may! A friend stopped counting at 80 days in April and he works full time as a teacher (but he has fridays off ) In may he said: I could ski every weekend and all holidays because it's been constantly awesome. He skied pow on the titlis closing day on may 23rd and his first pow day was September 26th with me. I couldn't go in latr may because I had to Pack the rv for a surf trip but i skied pow on may 9th or 11th maybe. So an 8 month season!
    Hell I skied thigh deep pow in the fucking Black forest. And spent 15 days there because we couldn't go to the Alps. Locals said it was the best Black forest season since 05 06.

    February sucks. Great if you enjoy EPIC-like lift lines and drunks everywhere.
    March is great if you hate lift lines and like having the mountain for yourself. Also, the steep lines are usually in better condition late in the season as it can still snow and the glaciers gets more and more cover.

    Is there a comprehensive list of resorts to avoid because of epic and ikon and what else not?
    I mean Arlberg, verbier and Chamonix have been on my list anyway( verbier has alreadybeen crowded in 2002, the cosmique had a lot of tracks in late may in 2006) . Nobody cares about Zermatt, but andermatt makes me sad. I still remember days when you could ski to the valley before 11am and not get Stuck in the morning valley lift line.
    Engelberg has not changed much except that I tend to go home an hour earlier then ten years ago because it's tracked 12 am to 1pm instead 1 to 2pm.

    And do not post euro resorts where it's still good

    pre Sawaris was great. It's still better than almost any N. America ski area for crowds and expense.

    guilty as charged. Except there's a few I don't post about, like the farmers lifts and that one downvalley from E-berg.

    Wow! If it's already tracked by 12AM that really is bad.

    Thought I'd post this here and give you First dibs. Doing a pre season clear out and before I post this on willhaben, any Innsbruck locals interested in a pair of beat 194 dynastar xxls and decent 196? Salomon xwing labs?

    LOFOTEN or LYNGEN?

    Planning for next year, looking for opinions on Lofoten vs Lyngen Alps. Also wondering about advice for timing. Was originally thinking about doing the boat thing, but looks like there's plenty of excellent road hits, and maybe with a little guidance and good sense, many good objectives can be skied.

    Right now I'm thinking either last week in March in Lofoten vs. 2nd week of April in Lyngen. Kinda leaning towards the latter.

    Or maybe Senja?

    I've been to the Sunnmøre already and want to look further north.

    I've already checked some of the excellent TRs in the archive, but and extra or updated advice or beta is greatly appreciated.
