NOAA’s Mountain Weather for Ski Mountaineers

What‘s the science behind a perfect powder day?  How do I catch the corn snow “golden hour”?  What should I look for in weather forecasts, and why are they always wrong?

Whether you’re looking to arm yourself with some weather knowledge for your next backcountry adventure, or just curious about snow science in general, join us for an evening workshop led by NOAA meteorologist Trevor Alcott.

A great time to delve into all of the great information gathered and presented by NOAA!

 

National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association

NOAA is an agency that enriches life through science. Their reach goes from the surface of the sun to the depths of the ocean floor as they work to keep the public informed of the changing environment around them.

From daily weather forecasts, severe storm warnings, and climate monitoring to fisheries management, coastal restoration and supporting marine commerce, NOAA’s products and services support economic vitality and affect more than one-third of America’s gross domestic product. NOAA’s dedicated scientists use cutting-edge research and high-tech instrumentation to provide citizens, planners, emergency managers and other decision makers with reliable information they need when they need it.
