  1. The models are slightly different, the GFS when it's run has a resolution of approx 13km (at the equator), the GEFS is at 34km. So the one degree products are extrapolated from that, and liable to have some differences.
  2. The sun came out today here in Whistler! Had a bit of low cloud lower down early in the day: But pretty much all cleared by lunchtime Managed to get a nice pano from Blackcomb mountain (7th heaven area) across to Whistler mountain And finished the day with some nice sunny apres action
  3. Here in Whistler it's pretty much not stopped snowing for 3 days (rain/sleet/snow at the base). Conditions are great, powder from mid mountain up, wetter snow a bit lower and spring snow lower still. Looks like some sunshine tomorrow which'll be nice as being able to see does help at times! A few photos from the last few days. And just for info, Greenland isn't green
  4. Place your vote in the final of the storm chase 2016 photo competition. Read More Here
  5. Please note, those starting duplicate accounts to vote in this will have their votes removed, so it's really not worth it.
  6. It's the big one! The final of the storm chase USA 2016 photo competition. The entries have been whittled down in the first vote, so we have the cream of the crop for the final vote. One small change is that on the tour 1 photos - photos 5 & 6 made it through to the final, but they were from the same day / same photographer, so just one of them is included in the vote, and the fourth place photo from that tour is now included in the final. The vote will close on Friday at 11am. Good luck to all the finalists! All photos were taking during the 2016 WeatherHolidays/Netweather storm chases by guests - if you'd like to join one of our tours, take a look at the WeatherHolidays website for more information.

  7. Afraid not, as Twitter don't provide this functionality (in terms of external embedding) at the moment.
  8. Caxton's are really good - it's what we use out there for everything, booking hotels, petrol etc etc. I also use one personally when I'm away and have never had issues.
  9. Walmart sell tripods fairly cheaply, we've had more than a few guests who just buy one and leave them in the USA when they go home to save squeezing them in.
  10. Our first set of ski resort guides are online: Whistler, Canada Bansko, Bulgaria Grandvalira, Andorra Hopefully they're a good and useful read! Next up we have La Plagne, St. Anton and Verbier, please shout if there's a resort you'd like to see given a guide - or if you'd like to write a guide for a resort you know well.
  11. Looking great in Avoriaz today. Which incidentally is a great spot to go to - some cracking runs and access into Switzerland for some cross border ski/snowboarding - inc the famous 'wall'. For those wanting a hidden gem or two, if you like it pretty quiet but right on the slopes, there are a few chalets in Ardent, which is the best way into Avoriaz as the Gondola takes you straight up to Lindarets bowl. For those who don't mind being a bit further out and what a few pubs/restaurants nearby, try St Jean D'Aulps, which is 10-15 mins from Morzine, Les Gets and Avoriaz (via Ardent). It's a nice village which has it's own small (unlinked) ski area which is very good for avoiding crowds on busy days, and is a lot cheaper than staying in town or in Avoriaz itself.
  12. Is looking pretty good in the PDS at the moment.
  13. Back on the subject of hidden gems, I spotted this at the weekend and thought it would be worth sharing as Vaujany (France) sounds pretty good as a gateway to Alpe d'Huez:
  14. A wintry start to the week on the way, as colder air moves over the UK in the wake of Storm Ewan. Read More Here
