Yeah I think this is what the experts were predicting earlier in the year but I saw something on the weather channel recently that starkly contrasted this. They are now predicting a more mild winter; temperature wise as well as snowfall wise. I was pretty disappointed as I am just getting back into snow sports. Let's hope their new prediction is wrong.

Yeah well, what about lower Michigan?

I recall we got more snow last year than the other lower peninsula folks did.

Snow can be freaky. As long as I get a lot then it's OK. (Doh... Sorry!)

Personnally I search for a favorable forecast and stick with it. In the great scheme of things they really do not have a clue.

If they did we could wax our skis for the year about halloween. ;)

That's my feeling on these long-range, seasonal forecasts. Same thing goes with hurricanes. I clearly remember the 2006 Atlantic hurricane season (the season after Katrina) was predicted to be the worst hurricane seasons ever. Turned out to be very calm.

I'm done with that nonsense. I wait until the snow is on the ground, then I ski it. Simple. :-)

After last years dismal snow, things were not looking good in the high Doubs but this morning
we have. :-) Enneigement parfait with 50cm base and the same exspected over the next few
days at Chapelle de Bois Pre Poncet, with the sun due to shine when we arrive Thurs.
