California Winter Almost Here?

10 Feb

Winter has sure taken it’s time getting here this year! Especially for those of us living out in California, it’s been the absolute worst winter season in terms of rainfall/snowfall. The rest of the country hasn’t been doing much better either. If you like to ski/snowboard, you know exactly what I’m talking about. The good news is that there is some snowfall expected in the mountains early next week. (Mammoth Mountain, specifically) And, according to the “dweebs” at MammothWeather.com, the outlook for March looks wet! We need that snow, not just to play in, but we gotta get that snow melt this summer! Lets hope the whole country has a ‘rockin March with tons of snow and rain. We need it! If you want to geek-out and look at a National radar map, check this out. Pretty cool stuff. Lets hope our ski lifts in California look like this in March:

Tip: skiing backcountry this winter? Don’t forget that avalanche beacon
