This ad isn’t creepy at all.

So came across this in the Denver Craigslist edition. Free lift tickets to Aspen. What’s the catch? There is none as far we can tell. And get this, they’re going to provide all the booze you can handle. Don’t even worry about blacking out…

Watch Gretchen Bleiler Go Down on Balls http://www.thesnowjunkies.com/2013/03/03/watch-gretchen-bleiler-go-down-on-balls/ http://www.thesnowjunkies.com/2013/03/03/watch-gretchen-bleiler-go-down-on-balls/#respond Sun, 03 Mar 2013 22:35:24 +0000 http://www.thesnowjunkies.com/?p=6217
Here’s what Shape Magazine has to say to about the sport of snowboarding:

“Snowboarding is one of the most deceiving sports of all. Pros like Gretchen Bleiler make it look so easy, but making it down the mountain in one piece requires a rock-solid core, flexibility, agility, and the ability to quickly adapt to unpredictable terrain. Honing all of those skills without spending hours in the gym every day requires a smart training plan.”

Yep. Hours in the gym. That’s definitely how I spend my day and not watching videos of Gretchen Bleiler in tight clothes.

Best Psychic Predictions for Winter Weather 2012/2013 http://www.thesnowjunkies.com/2012/11/18/best-psychic-predictions-for-winter-weather-20122013/ http://www.thesnowjunkies.com/2012/11/18/best-psychic-predictions-for-winter-weather-20122013/#comments Sun, 18 Nov 2012 18:43:21 +0000 http://www.thesnowjunkies.com/?p=5982

Don’t you just get tired of scientists and data and maps and…yawn…you just me put to sleep nerds. What if there was a better way to predict the weather? What if psychics came to our rescue?

Thank god for the Internet. Here’s a few glimpses into our collective futures by the best psychics in the world and by the best, I mean the first ones that turned up when I did a Google search.

Jodie Senkyrik thinks you should bundle up.

Still, my earliest of predictions is that the winter of 2014 will be one of the hardest on record. In the amount of time from now back to the winter of 2011, (which was one of the worse we’ve seen) is the same amount of time to the 2014 bad winter. AS of right now, if all things continue in this way, the 2014 winter will be even colder and longer than the winter of 2011. It will be cold to the extreme.

Jeanne Mayell is calling for December ice storms and that Obama will at sometime wear a top hat in January.

December – Ice storms, tears, a strong alignment of power in a bad way.
January – Obama in top hat, a man and a woman on the inauguration podium with black hair.
February – calm

This Boston psychic medium thnks there will be 7-10 storms…or 7-10 feet of snow.

As far as the 2012-2013 winter season is concerned, I think it will start in December 2012. They show me the number 10 and 7-10. So I don’t know as of yet if they mean 7-10 storms or 7-10 feet of snow. However, judging from the visual of the street they showed me it could very well be that we get more than 7 feet of snow this upcoming season. It is definitely going to be a wet one, and you better start working out now so you can lift/shovel the snow as needed. They also show me the number 5 too. If I get more info on it I will keep you updated.

100% Chance It Will Snow Somewhere in US: 2012/2013 Winter Predictions http://www.thesnowjunkies.com/2012/11/17/100-chance-it-will-snow-somwhere-in-us-20122013-winter-predictions/ http://www.thesnowjunkies.com/2012/11/17/100-chance-it-will-snow-somwhere-in-us-20122013-winter-predictions/#comments Sat, 17 Nov 2012 18:03:43 +0000 http://www.thesnowjunkies.com/?p=5976 It’s a tradition as old as winter itself — predicting the weather for the upcoming season. Now, I don’t know about you, but Rocky Mountain weatherman seem to have trouble guessing what’s going to happen that afternoon let alone season long trends. But after last winter, I’m willing to take any help to find the best snow this year. Note to mapmakers: You don’t need to use “cold and snowy” for New England. That’s just called “normal.”

Okay enough meandering. Take it away Nostradamus.

First up is Accuweather with their standard best guess scenarios.

Next up is the crew from Weather Advance.

If you like maps, science, and possibly the longest article ever written on winter predictions, then you’ll love the Weather Centre.

If all that science is too then check out The Farmer’s Alamanc weather map.
