I've found your Kirkwood forecast to be the most on-point forecast for the entire region for about eight years, especially when I lived in Reno/Tahoe. Matter of fact, I've been watching closely now that I live in the PNW and travel south for the storms. It's NEVER let me down!

Chris at www.snowforecast.com continues his magic for all of us skiers and riders. He has been spot on all winter and guided me to some huge pow days in Colorado and Utah. Thanks for your hard work and dedication!

I've enjoyed using your website since either the 99/00 or the 00/01 ski seasons. At that time I was a professional ski patroller and snowforcast.com was suggested to me as the only accurate place to get our local weather...

I'm the type of guy that accesses your reports from the link on our employee portal homepage, and then visits 2 or 3 other weather outlets with my eyes focusing on the forecasted snow totals. You were by far the most accurate last season...

Short and Long Range weather outlook for southwest Canada!
Posted Oct 27, 2018 - A relatively warm storm system is moving in for today and Sunday with showers all across southern British Columbia and southwest Alberta, starting out heavy right now, Saturday night, for the Vancouver, BC area: WUNIDS_map_Canada_10272018 The next several days to before Halloween look like this in terms of precipitation: gfs_mslp_pcpn_frzn_nwus_fh6-96 (2) And here is how snowfall is looking for now through just after the 10th of November: (45 to 90cm of snow (18" to 36") is possible in the next 16 days for areas 1,200 to 1,500+ meters in elevation (4,000 to 5,000 feet), which includes many resorts base to top!)

2019-02-20 - Where to be for the best snow this weekend! (22-24th Feb)
Here is our "top picks" snow forecast for this weekend... Hands-down,?Arizona will get the lions share of snow?before this weekend, with Thursday and Friday producing possibly 2 feet of new snow for the Arizona Snowbowl near Flagstaff, and that is on top of already?great snowfall this season! This is due to a VERY cold storm system dropping in out of the north (528-534dm 500-1kmb thickness this far south is unusual), a bit limited on moisture, but pulling from the Pacific offshore of southern California as it sweeps through. Saturday looks like an awesome day to catch some serious freshies there! Brian Head in Southern Utah is a bit of a sleeper, high 10,000+ foot elevation means great quality snow, and they will do well also. Thursday and Friday snow?also hits southwest and parts of western Colorado, favoring Telluride through Crested Butte and to some extent Aspen-Snowmass, dropping 6 to 12 inches of snow on much of the mountain for Aspen-Snowmass, 1 to 2 feet for Telluride, and in between totals for Crested Butte. Sunshine will crack through on Saturday and Sunday... HERE IS MODEL SNOW OUTPUT THROUGH SATURDAY MORNING: If you like already great conditions and want to get snowed on also, head to Sunday Valley, Jackson Hole, Bogus Basin on Sunday!More low pressure moves in later Saturday and Sunday across the northwest US and northern Rocky Mountains... Your local non-profit, Bogus Basin, with a surprising amount of great terrain, will also be getting hit nicely, on top of already amazing conditions, a stellar year! If you wait and show up on Monday, you could be there while another 1+ feet falls! Forecasts are being updated... Sat/ Sun progression, 1/2 to 1 foot for the most part for Sun Valley and Jackson Hole... And, wait until Monday and look at what is forecast (check the increase in accumulated snow for southern Idaho): Another 1 or 2 feet?on Monday, Sun Valley to Jackson Hole? We will be watching...

2019-02-20 - SOUTHWEST CANADA FORECAST - FEB 20, 2019
REST OF FEBRUARY:?High pressure ridging aloft builds in across the Gulf of Alaska, and Alaska, which is the usual source region for our more "juicy" storms that drop powder+ days... Instead, we expect?storms to drop in fairly frequently from out of the north, a drier region over land, for mostly moisture starved low pressure systems clipping most of western Canada with 2.5 (1 inch) to 7.5cm (3 inches) snowfalls, some to 15cm (6 inches of snow)....More

2019-02-06 - Where to be for the best snow this weekend! (8-10th Feb)
WHERE TO BE IN THE WESTERN USA THIS WEEKEND! Here is our early forecast for this weekend... Hands-down, Tahoe ? Mammoth?will be?the winner in terms of snow all through this weekend, with NO snow level issues, in fact dry and cold powder is what we mostly expect, especially on Sunday... We are expecting two storms to move through, the first of which?will be the weaker of the two, and will also be faster moving one, mainly a wave out ahead of the main storm to hit Saturday and Sunday. It looks like the snow will begin flying again mainly Friday afternoon through overnight, with 6 to 10 inches of fresh snow?forecast?to be on the ground for the Saturday morning snow?report, for favored resorts across Northern Tahoe like Sugar Bowl and Squaw-Alpine, and 3 to 6 inches of snow for other areas. Friday, First storm, GFS Snow Accumulation by Saturday 4am based on a 1:10 water to snow ratio, whereas the water to snow ratio will be closer to 1:15 (more snow than shown on this map, is what is expected by the Saturday morning snow report)... A stronger?and larger scale, slower moving, and offshore positioning storm system starts dropping in from out of the north, located offshore, looking stronger/ colder, more dynamic, and dropping heavy snow Saturday and Sunday, basically?ALL weekend long! We expect to see? 10? to?18 inches of snow each?day all across Tahoe-Mammoth, for a total of 2 (south Tahoe, Mammoth) to 3+ (north Tahoe) feet of extra snow expected this weekend! Saturday and Sunday! Friday through Sunday,?2 storms, GFS Snow Accumulation by Sunday 4pm (close of business for most resorts on Sunday) based on a 1:10 water to snow ratio, whereas the water to snow ratio will be closer to 1:15 and even 1:20 (possibly MUCH more snow than shown on this map, is what is expected by the Sunday?afternoon at 4pm! The snow will continue through Monday morning, so show up Monday if you like less crowds, DEEP and Fresh snow, and sunshine! Cold-smoke, No-joke powder! (on top of deep bases!) Combined with the snow that has already fallen across Tahoe-Mammoth in recent weeks, conditions will be?amazing this weekend! In fact, we are expecting no snow level issues whatsoever, and even a drier/ colder?cold-smoke powder, especially on Sunday....More
