    I need to hit up Wooley for a ski maintenance day if he is up for it in the next week or so. Santa needs to bring me some new tools and some weed. I hate not being able to do any tuning, especially when I could spend a whole day having fun doing it. And car repair has me looking in the couch for change to buy atleast a gram weed for the week.

    Got up early with my daughter and made the 3 hour drive to mission ridge. Rope tow was broken so we hopped on chair 1. Happy to say that my daughter skied the whole chair without falling. From where we started this is a huge deal. She was so proud of herself and she kept asking to spin another lap. At this point, hours before the game, I knew the Seahawks were gonna lose... Couldn't have my cake and eat it too.

    Steven's was looking very melted out 33 degrees and raining at 7am and the same at 4.30pm.
    At this point I'm just hoping to ride the padded seats by Christmas.

    Now that winter is almost half over, I'm hoping for a snowy spring.

    Solstices and equinoxes mark the midpoint of the season they occur in, not the beginning of the next one, with respect to sun angles, weather patterns, etc.

    Apparently so. The rule of thumb among meteorologists is that winter starts roughly 3 weeks prior to winter solstice. Cf., highest average daily temperatures year-to-year cluster for several weeks starting 3 weeks after summer solstice.

    On current news, the forecast calls for up to a foot of snow mid-week. White Pass will likely open this weekend, although I will miss Saturday opening day because I once again got recruited to do the Audubon Christmas Bird Count, i.e., I'm taking one for the birds.

    I kinda want to hear his wisdom on the Central Cascade snowpack

    Damn, that is awfully optimistic. Im hoping the padded seats start a' spinning before 2020. Takes a lot of refrozen avi debris to cover the the upper mountain boulder fields.

    Based on what I saw up there on Saturday, Christmas is very optimistic. Need over 30" base to get a skiable lower mountain. Maybe 3-4" right now. I never count on anything in December. If we get any December skiing, that's a bonus to me.

    Unfortunately I dont have two left hands. Thanks for looking though. Here is a arbitrary internet point +1.

    It's been over a year since I last skied so I'm pretty bummed how the seasons been starting, but I've learned to be a bit more patient. The snow will come

    With last night's primetime handegg disappointment, I'm willing to double-down on my bet that 12/29 will be a great day atop Snoqualmie Pass.

    At this point, if Alpental is open for any sort of sliding by NYE, I'll be happy. The forecast for later this week looks promising, but ultimately it seems like it will fall short of delivering anything more than enough for the diehard golfing crowd to get after. Looks like we might get a short-lived ridge this weekend to set the wet stuff up and cool everything down followed by more seasonable precip & temps next week. I'm betting limited lift-served golfing will begin the 20th with more holes and additional courses coming online just in time for the holidays.

    Nah, letís keep him around. Wish heíd dial up the PNW hate talk more. Helps Keep the lurkers from moving here maybe, and if there is one less car or jabroni in the lift line itís all worth it.

    "Winter" in that context is not meant to be equivalent to "ski season" or even "snowfall season," but rather the season itself.

    What kind of season? Astronomical winter starts on winter solstice. But meteorological winter starts December 1. See https://www.timeanddate.com/calendar/aboutseasons.html; https://www.almanac.com/content/first-day-seasons#.

    Meteorological winter seems more relevant on a ski thread, no?

    I've only got a public school education so bare with me, but under what 3rd grade spectrum is December fucking ninth half way through any definition of 'Winter?'
