Welcome to the WINTER of 2017-2018.
This page is in constant development and you will see additional tools over time. Although this page is geo-site specific to Red and Granite Mountains near Rossland, BC, many of the tools apply to much of the Pacific North West.
December 4, 2017
It’s Monday and the forecast is for clear skies and cooler temperatures, finally some sunshine! Unfortunately, the extended forecast is for this pattern to continue for at least the next two weeks due to the return of the Godzilla Ridge. So, what snow you have is what snow you’ll get to work with until just before Christmas.
Get out and enjoy that sunshine!
