Joe Nicholls and Safety Wise Forecast for Saturday, February 22, 2014

Joe Nicholls: Nice to see the winds behave like we talked about for last evening! We have a moist northwest flow aloft today and tonight, so we should see a nice period of snowfall. Once again the winds will be gradually increasing through the afternoon, and peaking right around 5 PM, then the gradient and winds aloft back off early evening. Very similar to yesterday, but the surface pressure gradient is a little weaker today! After some morning clouds and snow showers early tomorrow, it…

Joe Nicholls and Safety Wise Forecast for Friday, February 21. 2014

Joe Nicholls: We'll see variable clouds and a couple of periods of snow or snow showers, especially this morning and again tomorrow afternoon and evening. The winds look like they behaved last night, but we'll have to deal the wind today again. The surface gradient will be gradually increasing later this morning and into the afternoon, plus the 700 mb winds stay around 30 knots from the west. I do see a decrease in the surface gradient this evening and the winds drop to 25 knots at 11 PM, so…

From Steamboat to Russia: Vic Wild wins gold for host nation

Luke Graham - The Steamboa Today

Vic Wild barreled down the parallel giant slalom course at the Rosa Khutor Extreme Park, knifing through the gates while the slush of Russian snow kicked up.

Down below Justin Reiter stood with his left hand shielding the sun from his face, his eyes dripping tears, unable to look away from the video board above the stadium.

In between the two, the story…

Joe Nicholls and Safety Wise Forecast for Wednesday, February 19, 2014

Discussion on storm event The cold front is into the northwest corner of Utah and should reach us between 3 and 5 PM this afternoon. The air mass will be quite unstable as this cold front moves into the area, so there is a chance of a thunderstorm near the front. Should see a burst of snow through the evening and a much colder air mass will move in behind the front. Another system will move into the area later tomorrow night and Friday bringing another period of snow or snow showers. The…

Ted Cordova is one of the last of the drifting cowboys and a builder of ski trails

Tom Ross - The Steamboat Today

One of my favorite mid-morning powder runs at Steamboat is Ted’s Ridge, a north-facing upper intermediate trail that peels off to skier’s right of Heavenly Daze. Often, you can still find untracked snow on the far right and far left of the moderately steep first pitch at 10 a.m., then bounce through small powder bumps where the pitch begins to…

Joe Nicholls and Safety Wise Forecast for Monday, February 17, 2014

Joe Nicholls: The system last evening is now well east of the area, and the next system is moving into the Pacific Northwest.  This system will pass north of us later tonight and tomorrow, but we will see a little more increase in the winds across the upper portion of the resort with this system. The next cold front to move across the area will arrive on Wednesday bringing a nice shot of snow, and it'll usher in a much colder air mass. A couple of smaller systems will move across the area…

Joe Nicholls and Safety Wise Forecast for Thursday, February 12, 2014

Joe Nicholls: Pretty difficult forecast, and snow levels will be climbing, as the jet stream pushes further north through Saturday. A cold front will move across the area later Sunday bringing a much cooler air mass and a brief period of snow. The pattern will be shifting next week with more typical cold fronts moving across the area, as a cold area of low pressure exits the Gulf of Alaska and moves into the western states. We'll see the first front arrive on…
