NewsFlash: Dramatic improvements in weather modelling enable anyone to predict perfect powder days!
5 Minute Weather Forecasting reveals the tricks and tools an experienced meteorologist employs when there is only five minutes to assess future weather. This is a hands-on practicum. The best forecasters involve their colleagues, so be prepared to engage as you become a part-time prognosticator.
Would you like to be able to cherry pick only the best days to ski? Me too! Last winter, I had the best Whistler-Blackcomb skiing of my life. With a ten-day Edge Card and interest in big snow days only, I went a perfect ten-for-ten selecting perfect powder days. The forecast technique is not complicated. In fact, once you understand a few simple ideas about weathermodelling, you can do it too! 5 Minute Weather Forecasting will teach you how to make a reliable alpine weather forecast in less than five minutes.
Instructor: David Jones – formerly the Senior Meteorologist for Environment Canada and Climate Change Canada is known for creating the most entertaining (and literary) weather forecasts in Canada. Learn from the best in a fun and useful course!
