Wanted: Snow


Washington ski area looking to purchase 10,000 acre-feet of snow to supplement our meager natural supply. Seller must be willing to provide delivery and installation.

———-

I mean, seriously, can we work some sort of trade here? That two feet of snow that I read about in the paper this morning is just causing problems back east, and it sure would be a good start around here. I’m sure I could get some smoked salmon or Geoduck for you…

This is by far the worst ski year I can remember. Some of our ski areas saw 5 or 6 inches of warm rain last Monday, and the majority of our ski areas are now closed (Crystal is pretending to be open, but one lift doesn’t count in my book. Even Mt. Baker, the North American snowfall record holder at 1140 inches in a year, is closed).

The poor snowpack is also of concern for the coming summer, and we will proably be under water rationing. Most the municipal water supplies in western Washington depend on snowmelt to fill our resevoirs, and our snowpack is currently at 16% of average.

  1. Eric…I’m relocating from Michigan to Redmond this week. Perhaps I can see if the moving company would be willing to fill up a truck or two with the foot+ of snow that fell on us the other day. And here I am looking forward to getting rid of my snowblower! 🙂

    I think you can get that 10,000 acre-feet of snow out of my back yard. Just make sure you take the 6 foot drift at my back door with it.

  3. I went to Baker this weekend, it was open in limited operation due to lack of snow. It rained the entire time, but we had fun nonetheless. If it was about 8 degrees colder, it would’ve been a blizzard…

  4. Yeah, you had to start early this year. I skied 6 days already, and we’ve had some fine snow in the beginning of the month, but at least in Baker, it was all ruined in one day’s raining.

    Now it looks like the season is pretty much finished. Finished in january? Come on, that can’t be true.

    No way! I want my snow. This has been the best XC skiing year in recent history.

    I grew up getting about 300 inches a year, I moved South and away from the lake effect snow. It is hard to play in snow that doesn’t stack up above 6" on the ground. Rather it is just a pain in the but!

  6. This is why *water* skiing is so much better . . .

    😛

  7. Mark says:

    not to be a pain or anything, but Mt. Snow, VT got 20" of snow this past weekend. The skiing was great on Monday. East Coast skiing is never that great, but this year is an exception. ’bout time we got some snow. 🙂

    Why isn’t there any snow… is there a scientific explanation for this unreasonable crappy lack of snow?!
