Looks like 7" at 4800ft, not bad for November...



I would not be surprised if the actual snow amounts exceed the forecast. Too bad there will be another warmup next week :-(

There he is!!! Nice to hear from ya! I too figure that Snowshoe is possibly in for a little more snow than forcasted. BTW, I like the graphs. I am just about finished with a BS in Bio, so graph reading has become my forte. Nice graphs are always appreciated...

Yeah, a lot can happen between 2,700 ft and 4,800 feet. God Bless These WV ALPPS!!!!!


If I didn't have an Organic test tomorrow and did have a good pack I would seriously consider making a trip to 4,848 tomorrow......

I am real interested to see how much snow they get, and how it compares to the forecast. My weather tool does take elevation and slope into account, but this is the first ski season I am computing snow amounts and I have no idea how accurate it really is. The location I picked was on the basin side, which tends to collect most of the snow at the Shoe.

I would sure like to get out there tomorrow or Saturday; wish I lived closer to the action! This is exactly the early-turns situation I bought AT gear for, but watch, I will probably be mowing the grass on Saturday instead of skiing!

Course its still snowing lightly but SS only got 4 inches overnite(5 for 24 hour amount) with canaan getting 2...I thought things didn't look right for that big dump. Anyway its still great to add to the manmade for opening day...heck they could open today!

Got about 3 inches here in Davis. I'll have to admit I'm a bit disappointed. First time in a long time the NWS forecast was not exceeded in an upslope event.

I'm trying to figure somthing out..Canaan hts Cks in with 2..You in Davis with 3 & whoever that guy is that does the Daily OBS for Canaan Valley cks in with 5...he needs to ck his ruler but the canaan hts guy seems to be getting more conservative with his counts.Your 3 seems about right Jonjon. I think its about time that the NWS starts getting the elevated areas f=casts down a little better....I kept seeing up to 4 with everything I saw("up to 4 inches for the Alpps" on the GW Thread) & figured with all the hype (10 inches for the shoe!)I reluctantly said 6 by fri morn for SS...thats my story & I'm sticking with it!....Think snow for T=Giving!!!......PS..Can we start a pool on snow amount predicts?...winner gets a free lift ticket or somthing.....
