Long Range Forecast Discussion:

7 day to 2 week+ forecast (since 1998) - 27 August to 06 September, 2014 - Mid to late next week may end up on the dry and cooler side for the most part, as unseasonably cold and strong low pressure out of the Gulf of Alaska moves across mainly the northwest US, helping to scour moisture out and to the east of Colorado. This pattern should include some chances for summer thunderstorms, but for more brief periods than usual as this early season low pressure breaks the warming and heating, plus subtropical moisture up.

Longer Range Outlook

As of now, August 2014, we are still on a path to see an El Nino Sea Surface Temperature pattern hold across the Equatorial Eastern Pacific. As of the last check, July has shown a possibly brief trend to cooler Sea Surface Temperature Anomalies across the eastern Equatorial Pacific (El Nino development has been put on hold for now). We will watch and see what happens.

Current SST pattern- La Nada

The larger time-scale SST pattern in place right now is still a cool phase PDO, or negative PDO, which stands for Pacific Decadal Oscillation. This is a more long term pattern (decades), and it has made any recent years El Nino SST patterns weaker.

To reiterate, we expect an overall trend toward positive SST Anomalies along the eastern Equatorial Pacific. The likelihood of an El Nino pattern this fall and winter are really good, now "likely". Forecasts from other agencies are calling for El Nino conditions to hold this fall and winter. This would favor the southwest US (including southern California and across to Taos Ski Valley, even Aspen, Colorado) for heavier rain and snow this fall and mainly winter (2014-2015), after the wet monsoon summer across the southwest US. Northwest US areas, and southwest Canada, along with northern Colorado through Wyoming and the northern Rocky Mountains, should see an active monsoon (thunderstorms and showers) this summer, followed by a drier than average, or near average snowfall winter (2014-2015). This is our outlook for now, and we will update as info becomes available. All of this information is generated in-house.

We will keep this outlook updated as more information becomes available. If you want to know when the snow is coming (and be able to set unlimited alerts for any resort), within 5 minutes or less of us (our our sources) entering the data into any of our forecasts, be sure to download the app.

Northstar-at-Tahoe's comfortable attitude comes from the fact that we're a comfortable size. Northstar has 79 runs on 2,480 acres. It's big enough to keep things interesting, but no so big that getting around becomes daunting. New signage and grooming maps this year make it easier than ever to get around the resort and know where you want to start and end your day. For those who often find themselves struggling to decide whether to make a park lap or a powder run, The Stash offers the perfect solution. A collaborative new concept created by Jake Burton and Snow Park Technologies (SPT), The Stash combines park riding with backcountry feel and features...so skiers and riders can get their powder and park fix all in one run. Every once in a while you need to cast off some of the trappings of civilization and pay attention to stuff that matters. Stuff like reclaiming a goggle tan, or seeing your friend do his impression of the agony of defeat” guy. Northstar Resort is the kind of place where these things can happen. Up here life is unrushed and unrehearsed. You're allowed to improvise. There is no scene - just people who enjoy being on the mountain. It feels like home, but you're encouraged to act like you're on vacation. This season, Northstar Resort is proud to announce the opening of new doors in the Village at Northstar including a variety of specialty shops, restaurants, art galleries and more. In addition, during summer 2006, the resort launched the next phase of its extensive mountain improvement plan, which included the addition of two new lifts, relocating the cross-country center, adding new parking lots, expanding its snowmaking system and opening additional terrain.
