Once the 100-day-till-ski-season countdown begins, it’s inevitable that the snowfall speculation quickly follows. And after a winter of record-breakingly low snowfall, the excitement is running high on a wave of optimism — all of those powderhounds who didn’t quite get their fix are ready for a season full of redemption.
It all starts at the beginning of September when the Farmers’ Almanac and the Old Farmer’s Almanac (two rival publications) release their winter weather predictions.
Both almanacs rely on top-secret formulas created hundreds (yes, hundreds) of years ago by their respective founders David Young and Robert B. Thomas. Modern meteorologists are skeptical about predictions past 10 days, so take what you read with a grain of salt.
