2014-15 Ski Season Progress Report as of November 1, 2014

In most ski regions this has been a warmer and drier than normal October. Therefore limited ski area information is available.

California: The first Sierra winter storm hit last night and will move on today. Tahoe ski areas got 3-8 inches. The storm track was centered farther south so Mammoth reports 9-13 inches and should have 18+ up top by tonight. This will not likely advance the scheduled Nov. 13 opening date. The Sierra is expected tol be warm and dry for the next 2 weeks.

Pacific Northwest: Whistler is currently sticking with its scheduled Nov. 27 opening despite abundant alpine snow in last week's webcams. Mt. Bachelor had a foot of snow last week, but most of it has melted off the lower mountain.

Canadian Rockies and Interior B.C.: While October snow has been reported anecdotally in western Canada, no one is open and unlike prior years there are no specific snow totals quoted.

U. S. Northern Rockies: The only reported snowfal number is 12 inches at Jackson mid-mountain. This is well below average. However snow is predicted in most of this region next week.

Utah: No snow has been reported and cams at the top of Snowbird at 11,000 feet show no snow on the ground.

Northern and Central Colorado: A-Basin opened one snowmaking run on October 17 and a second run this week. Loveland has had 7 inches of October snow (far below average) and opened November 1.

Southern and Western Colorado: Wolf Creek had a few inches early October snow that melted out and is getting a few more inches over this weekend.

Northeast: October was too warm for any areas to open by the end of the month. Snowmaking is underway at Killington and Sunday River for likely openings early next week.
