    Out in the Rockie mountains. A bunch of us are dealing with the lack of snow. Just find something else to keep you busy is all.

    No such thing as reliable snow. Even up here, we were crying the blues the last two winters. This one is turning out good. Probably the best I've heard of is Denver or Truckee.

    Northern mountain or lake effect areas ?? You can look up the historical for an area on NOAA. Here in North Central Kansas going back to the early 1900's there has been winters with a total of .7"(go broke) up to around 40"(buy new Hummer). Our average is about 22", it's a real crapshoot.
