We’re 10 days out from the Birkie now which means … we have three models worth of out output—8 model runs per day!—to obsess over.
But there’s not that much to obsess over since they’re agreeing pretty well on the following:
Snow next week. Sunday-Tuesday. Not a huge blizzard, but several inches, from 4 to 6 inches on the Euro, 6 to 8 inches on the GFS and 16-24 inches on the Canadian. Uh, that would be a blizzard. But that’s the outlier. Still, expect some fresh snow.
Cold after the snow. Not frigid, but not above freezing. The models have highs in the teens and lows around zero next week, so the snow should set up well.
Milder for race day. But not above freezing. The models have Friday and Saturday both with lows between 0 and 10 and highs in the 20s. One puts it to freezing by Saturday afternoon after a cold morning. Perfect weather, if you ask me!
So get started selecting your skis (probably a soft pair with a cold grind), waxing and obsessing over everything, weather included.
And get that fever!
