We're at the Porltand Ski Fever and Snowboard Show through Sunday - lots of excitement particularly with the snow hitting the mountains.
Local meteoroligist Rod Hill is at our booth - he says there's still a good amount of precip in this storm (possibly matching the 17 inches we already received). And possibly more importantly he sees weather that should sustain this snowpack, with another few storms before Thanksgiving, making for a great early season snowpack! Rod is offering a subscription forecast service you an find at RodHillForecast.com
Sammy C stopped by Friday and picked up his pass. He's stoked and will be headin' to Sweden to see if he can win the same early season jam he won when he was 16.
