NOAA Predicting La Nina

I don't give out specific route information, my belief is that it takes away from the whole adventure spirit of a trip, if you need every inch planned out, you'll have to get that from someone else.

Have a safer backcountry experience by using the HST ReConn Form 2.0, named after Larry Conn, a HST member: http://reconn.org

Saying dry for "California" is a bit of a stretch. SoCal will likely be drier, NorCal likely wetter, and central is a toss up. Most of our favorite range is in the toss up region. Remember that the winter of 2016-17 was also a La Nina winter.

I think the only move I'd make in response to a La Nina would be to move the family ski vacation from Taos to Bridger Bowl. Maybe skip the condo in Big Bear this year, but they make half their snow anyways.
