I want to share another perspective on this winter’s forecast – this one is Colorado specific. AspenWeather.net‘s forecaster Ryan Boudreau and meteorologist Cory Gates issued their official winter forecast last week. I’ve known Ryan for a few years and I know Cory to be an exceptional meteorologist. Their combined passion for skiing is contagious.
There is overlap with my winter forecast, but there are also slight differences including the potential for a stronger/colder La Nina.
- La Nina driven winter (Gates says it could go stronger than mainline forecasts indicate).
- Optimistic about snowfall Central and Northern Mountains.
- Gates notes that 10 of Aspen’s snowiest winters on modern record occurred with La Nina.
