Buoypop! Looks like some potential escalation through Presidents' Day weekend, but the beginning of a bigger pop is right after. Some decent snow totals overnight but I don't think the heavy stuff is coming down for a while. Bulk of this storm is supposed to go through the day and into tomorrow with another Couple blasts into Valentine's Day. #gungalagunga #yeahbuoy
2 down, and more to go, looking really solid going into valentines and there is a little bonus after valentines as well ❤️❤️❄️
Don't know if this is a good thing or a bad thing, but for clarification the white powder we are interested in is snow, for skiing ❄️
Always fun to have a buddy for a hot lap, she's not a groundhog but she definitely didn't see her shadow. You can see the surface hoar, but turning conditions are still nice!
Storms are looking good, should start 2nd, then 4th for a few days, then the 8th for a few days, and right into Valentine's Day.
This January was one for the books, I don't think I have seen a month like this since the mid 90's. A few more days of sunshine before we start the storm track again. One estimate is looking for a total of 36" of new snow over the next 7 days (starting on Thursday).
Talk about a super storm!! I don't think I've seen it snow so much so fast since the mid 90's. I thought we'd see a continuation for a few days after the 18th, which ended up actually starting the 19th, but definitely didn't think it would last this long based on original buoypop, holy cold smoke!!
Also looks like we aren't getting anything too meaningful in the next few days. Looks like we may get snow on the 25th, it will be a powder day, and there was a pop for the 28th, we'll see if that lines up.
While it is embarrasing, barroom science isn't exact, but hopefully you all can forgive the Buoy on this one. Still on track for the first week of feb, looks like starting the 2nd and continuing though the 4th/5th and another into 8th/9th!
On this Inauguration Day, it looks like high pressure may be trumping our low pressure system and it looks like we may get the infamous high pressure donut hole where storms sweep above or below the Wasatch for the 25-27, things can still change, still holding out hope for 28th and feb 2nd. This happens at this time of year every year, hard to predict 2 weeks out, doing the best a buoy can do and have fun with it. With that, enjoy the current storm cycle, and cross your fingers for a change in the patterns for late next week, otherwise it is sunny beer in the parking lot and fat biking weather.
It's just getting better and better, almost brings a tear to the buoy's eye! Jan 25th-the end of the month is looking real real nice. #yeahbuoy . We have a break in the weather for the next few days until the Jan 18 storm that looks to be right on target which could bring 30" by the weekend.
As for now be careful in the backcountry, lots of recent activity, give it a day or 2 to settle down before getting aggressive. #knowbeforeyougo.
Thanks to all the Buoyheads near and far, 3200 strong. I hope you've been getting out any enjoying this snow! Share pics if you've got 'em.
Well I'd say we overachieved on this one over the last 9 days, over 100" of #greatestsnowonearth have fallen and more to come. Hope you all got some flu days in on powfest 2017! What a way to kick off the new year, keep it coming!!
Looks like something is brewing for Jan 25th, hopefully this is the beginning of a bigger #buoypop! The roads are a mess, but if you can make it up today, I'm sure you won't be disappointed. If you can't make it today, you'll be a day older when you do. (HT:Warren Miller). #yeahbuoy #skiutah
It's easy to get discouraged when it is raining outside your window all day long and there is a river going down the street. But then it cools down and starts snowing and its going to keep snowing and snowing for the next 3 days. This isn't showing anything for the 13th, so hopefully there is another little bump in there somewhere to coincide with the #buoypop, but can I get a #buoyeah!!
Details on the storm that started last night and will last through Monday evening from friend of the Buoy, Brian at NOAA. Looks a bit denser then the last storms, but fingers crossed for some colder than expected temps which could make all the difference. Looks like Snowbasin and PowMow will get the brunt of the moisture. More snow in the horizon for 13th and 18th. The buoy has been quiet for the past 4 days, hopefully we get a bouypop in the not too distant future.
Love the sound of avi bombs in the morning, sounds like victory. 2017 is coming in hotter than Mariah Carey in a lip syncing battle. Snow, and lots of it, is slated to come over the next 2 weeks before things settle back down. According to U of U atmospheric science dept, we could be sitting on over 100" of new snow over the next 7 days (a bit of take it with a grain of salt-o-meter on that one). #yeahbuoy #skiutah#powfest2017#mayneedtoburnallofyoursickdaysinthefirst2weeksof2017
Looks like we got another storm coming for the 14th or so, don't put those boards away just yet. Spring skiing is upon us. #buoypop #yeahbuoy#skiutah
