Long Range Forecast Discussion:

7 day to 2 week+ forecast (since 1998) - 30 November to 09 December, 2014 - A large and cold Gulf of Alaska low pressure system will be developing for early next week (30th onward into December), delivering significant snow to west coast resorts all the way to Canada, and some even to southern California resort areas (on track). That low pressure system hits the Rocky Mountains afterward, from the northern Rocky Mountains south, with Colorado and northern New Mexico (Taos and Aspen) seeing snow Monday through Wednesday (Dec 1-3). A brief break of sunshine follows, and storms should be pretty regular, so we do not expect a long period of sun/ warming. CM

Longer Range Outlook

November 2014, we are still on a path to see a weak El Nino Sea Surface Temperature pattern hold across the Equatorial Eastern Pacific. Sea Surface Temperature Anomalies yield a weak El Nino pattern across the eastern Equatorial Pacific (El Nino development is on track, but it will be weak, still somewhat favorable for California and the desert Southwest, plus much of Colorado and northern New Mexico).

Current SST pattern- El Nino

A weak El Nino (or possible "neutral" pattern) is expected for this winter, into early 2015.

Current SST pattern- El Nino

Northwest US areas, and southwest Canada, along with northern Colorado through Wyoming and the northern Rocky Mountains, should expect a drier than average, or near average snowfall winter (2014-2015). Tahoe/ Mammoth should see near average snowfall, with near average snowfall also expected across southern California and northern Arizona resorts. CM

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.
