Ride the endless winter!

This is truly my first POWDER ALERT of the 2008-2009 season… and the POWDER ALERT is for this THURSDAY, DECEMBER 18TH.

A cold and wet weather system will drop into Oregon from the northwest on Wednesday. Snow begins in the mountains (and lower elevations too) in the morning, so Wednesday will feature new snow as well. But the snow will likely add up 8-12″ deep by Thursday morning, making that day a great one for powder lovers. Hopefully, with the additional snow, ski areas will be able to open additional terrain.

Looking further ahead, there is another storm on the horizon that is due to arrive this weekend. The computer models are all over the place in their prediction about the forecast snow level, but I personally believe there will be significant new snow in the mountains again this weekend.

Enjoy the powder,
