La Nina, our old friend, looks to return this season to cover Mt. Ashland’s slopes in a thick blanket of white! According to a presentation made yesterday by the NOAA Climate Prediction Center, there is a good chance we will be seeing weather this winter similar to that of the winter of 2016-17, when more than 370 inches of snow fell on Mt. Ashland’s snow stake.
According to the Center’s September prediction, La Niña is likely (> 70% chance) from August-October 2020 to December-February 2020-21, with a ~50% chance of continuing through February-April 2021. In December 2016, we had 102 inches of snowfall, then 120 inches in January.
We are not in the business of predicting the future, but we’re feeling pretty good about our upcoming season.
Now is a great time to purchase your season pass for the exciting season to come. During the month of October, an adult season pass costs just $424. With the added benefit this season of being our highest priority this season, there’s never been a better time to be a Mt. Ashland season pass holder.
