No warming for almost 2 decades

Andy, quit talking about your bedroom life; we're not interested.

I was only mentioning how many ski areas NY currently has to remind that ,It is a huge industry up here.

That industry has been ill in recent years,and it is good to see an "old " type winter here.

At one point in the 60's,NY had 300+ ski areas.We are down to around 50 now.

This does not include x country areas/parks.

As I have said ,I mostly ski BC.There is an endless amount of terrain,3 good sized mountain ranges,and a ton of abandoned ski areas.

I stagger to think of what it would be like if NY never gave away the county of Vermont.

CC and it's affects,concern more than just a few here.

Now ,if we only had more accessible Granite .

Below is your AVG NY STATE Ski Resort. WOOOOOOOOOOOOW!











Here is the wench engine. They have been using the same technology for over 70 years to conserve on energy. The PRIMARY REASON the ski industry as been "ILL" in NY. They never implemented the concept of change and upgrade to their systems. Thus, they all were abandoned. Shame.

I never said it was better skiing over here.
I have skied quite a bit out west,but I doubt if there are more skiers there, per capita.
But I would be expecting you to understand averages.

Just cus you own a pair of ski's and can snow plow your ass down a 5 deg hill then bust your ass cus you can't stop, don't mean you are classified a skier, WELBEERE!

Sochi 2014: Kamil Stoch wins men's ski jumping normal hill gold

Poland's Kamil Stoch won gold in the men's normal hill ski jumping.
The 26-year-old produced a superb final jump to win his country's first medal of the Winter Olympics in Sochi.
He finished ahead of Peter Prevc of Slovenia, while Norway's Anders Bardal took the bronze medal.
Defending champion Simon Ammann, victorious in both individual titles in Vancouver four years ago, could only finish in 17th place as he sought a record fifth Winter Olympic title.
Japan's Noriaki Kasai, competing in a joint-record seventh Winter Games, was eighth.
Stoch's victory came with jumps of 105.5m and 103.5m for a total of 278 points.
"I feel like it's really not happened to me. Did this really happen? '' said Stoch. `"It was a great (first) jump. I didn't know if I won but I knew the result would be good.'"
Prevc scored 265.3 points, ahead of Bardal's 264.1 points.

Say what you want about east coast skiers, but you grow up skiing on that ice masquerading as snow, and you do get good. Any numpty can float powder stashes. Bode Miller developed in NH and ME, and he's about the best the US has ever produced.

looks like plenty of warmth until some cooler air for the weekend, then another warm sector...

Another piece in the puzzle: a new paper by England et al. just published in Nature Climate Change:

Recent intensification of wind-driven circulation in the Pacific and the ongoing warming hiatus

Despite ongoing increases in atmospheric greenhouse gases, the Earth’s global average surface air temperature has remained more or less steady since 2001. A variety of mechanisms have been proposed to account for this slowdown in surface warming. A key component of the global hiatus that has been identified is cool eastern Pacific sea surface temperature, but it is unclear how the ocean has remained relatively cool there in spite of ongoing increases in radiative forcing. Here we show that a pronounced strengthening in Pacific trade winds over the past two decades—unprecedented in observations/reanalysis data and not captured by climate models—is sufficient to account for the cooling of the tropical Pacific and a substantial slowdown in surface warming through increased subsurface ocean heat uptake. The extra uptake has come about through increased subduction in the Pacific shallow overturning cells, enhancing heat convergence in the equatorial thermocline. At the same time, the accelerated trade winds have increased equatorial upwelling in the central and eastern Pacific, lowering sea surface temperature there, which drives further cooling in other regions. The net effect of these anomalous winds is a cooling in the 2012 global average surface air temperature of 0.1–0.2 °C, which can account for much of the hiatus in surface warming observed since 2001. This hiatus could persist for much of the present decade if the trade wind trends continue, however rapid warming is expected to resume once the anomalous wind trends abate.

Does it matter? Do you see the trend? The snow season is ending sooner.

LOL, Sketch complains about cherry picking.

Most of the later months in the season show negative trends in snow cover.
