November 9, 2014

    Whistler Bowl Saturday morning, felt like snow was on the way. Small slide in centre of slope.

    Looks like a Size 1 cornice release. If there is enough snow to ride, there is enough to slide!

    More blue towards Squamish on Saturday afternoon.

    Tantalus Range had a fresh dusting yesterday morning.

Weather observations for November 9, 2014; taken at 06:00 Hours.

2240 meters      -4, Winds were 20-30 KPH from the SSW
1860 meters      -3, Winds were 20-30 KPH from the SSE
1550 meters      -1,  Relative Humidity 99 %
  660 meters     +3, Valley Temperature, Max Temp Yest was +8, 0.5 mm of rain recorded Yest

    This am cloudy with obscured skies, we will see sunny breaks by this afternoon. Snow guns are on.

For the Forecast, the cold front has left a layer of new snow in the alpine as it slowly moves out of our zone with lingering clouds this morning. Unsettled conditions this afternoon as an upper trough moves through prior to a high amplitude ridge building in a Northwesterly flow with cool temperatures and sunny conditions for Monday through Friday. The cold air mass will bring freezing temperatures into the valley.  There may be a  change coming Thursday as the models are in disagreement in what will happen with the air mass to the south of our zone. It may not affect us and we could be in for cool clear conditions into next weekend. More on that in future posts.

    Cold front is moving Southeast this morning.


     Cold temperatures Tuesday night into Wednesday. Omega Block, good for snow making.
