Where Ullr at?

It’s that time of year…the school semester is wrapping up and Christmas holidays are awaiting us. I plan do some skiing over the holidays but it’s looking a bit bleak out there.

The Old Farmer’s Almanac long range forecast is calling for snow to come and stay mid-to-late December. A big dump is expected from early to mid January and again mid to late February. Plus, the Almanac is calling for a cooler than normal April and May. So to me, it sounds like a late start and later finish to the ski season.

Here’s a map I made of where I plan to go skiing. Happy trails!
