Extended Outlook Updated 12-1-08

Issued Monday 12-1 6:30 am
Short Term Through 12-10-08
The general weather pattern will bring above average temperatures and close to average precipitation so for skiers that is not a good recipe for snow in the Cascades

Extended 12-12-08 to 12-15-08
The patterns change from a west to east flow (zonal flow- above average temperatures) to a more northerly to northwest flow cool, below average temperatures and a good recipe for snow in the Cascades

Extended Contest for Snowshoes
If you have not gotten in your guess yet we have extended the period to 12 pm today
New Hints:
As of this morning there is 9 inches of snow at Mt. Baker (4200 feet)
Based on the above forecast we think they range of snow on the ground on 12-15-08 at Mt Baker would be between 35 to 55 inches.
Guess how much snow will be on the ground at Mt Baker (4200 feet) on 12-15-08 at 12:01 am

Win Atlas Snowshoes From beginners to outdoor veterans, the 10 Series snowshoe is a great all-around snowshoe for avid hikers. Spring-Loaded Suspension provides the classic Atlas maneuverability and underfoot ease, while allowing the deeper penetration of the All-Trac toe crampon. Tempered steel Traverse Trac rails add sidehill control to the heel cleats' traction. Forget about binding hassles with the easy webbing of the Wrapp Plus binding, and walk comfortably as the padded foam instep evenly spreads the holding power over the whole foot to eliminate pressure points.
