Not so fast, you Debbie Downers! There is no conclusive data from ANY weather source regarding El Nino years. Some reports say that we’ll have below average snowfalls and other reports are indicating a much higher than average snowfall. I’ve heard that someone coined a phrase for those who “wish” we’d see a snowfall – “wishcasting.” Yup, that’s what we’re doing here at Plattekill a lot of WISHCASTING!
So, we’re going to keep things positive … there are reports out there that the things we termed last year … such as the Polar Vortex is moving into a position that will bring cold air to the East. And a couple years ago, we talked about Arctic Oscillation (2009-10) which just dumped snow on us – YAY Artic Oscillation!
So, don’t give up hope. The report is now that a more favorable weather pattern is heading our way! Our snowmakers are ON IT! Temps are already starting to drop and we will resume “Operation Snowstorm” tonight here at the mountain and be ready for the upcoming Martin Luther King Weekend holiday!
