Lack of Snow?

Postby metivir » Mon Jan 23, 2012 8:31 pm

The snow fall in the Northeast including the Adirondacks, is way down for this year. The temps have once again risen passed the freezing mark for the week. Has anyone seen improvements anywhere else?

We finally had some powder here in New England. This shot was from Friday last week.

Then we got a ton of rain and it was almost 50F yesterday. It's feast or famine this season.

I made the best of it tho, powder skis work sick on water as it turns out.

In Wisconsin this season has been pretty snowless. With the lack of snow, I've sure made good use of my switchblade on my snowboard. We've had some warm weather, then cold. When it's been warm the top of the ice is soft enough to ride without the switchblade, but then when it cools off and the ice gets hard again, the switchblade has been a season saver.

Right now there's no snow on the ice, essentially anywhere within 100 miles. Today we're looking at soft water kiting on Lake Michigan. We don't often get the conditions in the winter to do that. Time to dust off the drysuit! Later this week and this weekend it's back on the ice.

Shit does look like a killer place for a faceplant the icy lake...
Lots of snow and powder here in Norway up in the mountains, just a bit to much whiteout these days... :(
But up in the north they normally have meters of snow even on the coast, but hardy none so far this season...

It has been cold in Europe past week. It has also snowed all over but unfortunately only a little snow in Southern/Western Finland. Fortunately the cold finally froze lakes so I could take the gear out http://vimeo.com/36551718.
