11 Feet Of Snow Pounds Alaskan Ski Resort, + Asia Braces For A Harsh Winter

11 Feet Of Snow Pounds Alaskan Ski Resort

Alyeska Resort in Girdwood has started its snow season in jaw-dropping fashion.

Officially, Alaska’s largest ski resort begins recording its annual snowfall on October 1, but this year historic falls hit earlier than usual with 13 inches “unofficially” settling on September 23:

September’s snowstorm was a mere taster of things to come. Since that official start date of Oct 1, a whopping 136 inches (11.3 feet) of global warming goodness has accumulated at the top of the mountain (to Nov 1). Breaking down the numbers –data courtesy of alyeskaresort.com— 22 inches of that fell within the last 24 hours, with the ‘snow depth’ at the summit currently standing at an astonishing 67 inches.

“We got pounded,” said one Girdwood local in an email to me.

“[This is] the most snow I have seen in my 37 years around here,” they added.

Temperatures across The Last Frontier have held cooler than the average in recent months. This is thought to have been brought about by “much more sea ice in the Chukchi and East Siberian Seas northwest of Alaska,” according to Rick Thoman, climate specialist with ACCAP/IARC at UAF:

Moreover, and as was the case last season, a lingering anomalous chill contributed to Alyeska holding onto its snowpack into the summer — as reported by climatologist Brian Brettschneider, snow depth on the mountain was still at 98 inches in late May:

Perhaps this season’s heavy snowfall will lead to an early opening of Alyeska’s slopes (currently set for December) — a phenomenon we’re seeing in resorts across North America this season, including those in California and Colorado.

Asia Braces For A Harsh Winter

For vast swathes of Asia, including India, China, Kazakhstan, Mongolia and Russia, the La Niña weather phenomenon is on course to deliver another extremely frigid winter–one potentially even more severe than last year’s record-breaker, which, at least in part, led to the intensifying global energy crisis (due to depleted supplies).

Focusing on India, La Niña conditions are forecast to prevail between December 2021 and February 2022, according to the Indian Meteorological Department (IMD). And with La Niña also impacting the country last year, the cooling witnessed then “is expected to continue to evolve and may last till early spring of 2022,” reports firstpost.com.

Last season, a seemingly endless barrage of ‘cold waves’ battered the Republic of India, taking many historic benchmarks with it, but in our world of agenda-driving propagandizing these unprecedented chills went largely unreported. The data doesn’t lie, though: India is cooling — a fact that correlates neatly with historically low solar activity and the resulting weakening of the jet streams (among other forcings).

In October last year, Delhi broke a 58-year-old record, logging a mean minimum temperature of 17.2C (63F).

November saw an even more impressive benchmark fall when the month’s mean minimum temperature dropped to 10.2C (50F), a level last seen in 1949.

December suffered a total of eight ‘cold wave days,’ the highest since 1965. The final month of 2020 also went down as Delhi’s second-coldest since 1901, and also contained the capital’s coldest December day since records began more than a century ago.

New cold records have also been set throughout 2021, and across India.

In January, record snowfall cut-off Kashmir from the rest of the country.

Delhi then suffered its coldest May day in 70 years. The high of 23.8C (74.8F) registered on May 19 went down as the city’s coldest May day since 1951. Also in May, incredibly rare and heavy snowfall was reported in Kashmir, northern India.

India’s historic chill persisted into June. A reading of 17.9C (64.2F) was observed on the first day of the month — Delhi’s lowest June temperature in recorded history. According to data from the IMD, Delhi’s previous coldest-ever June minimum was the 18C (64F) set on June 17, 2006

And most recently, in October 2021, I reported that ‘cold wave conditions’ have already commenced in the north of the country. Lifted from an article dated Oct 25, “Regional Met Center data reveals that as many as 13 locales in the state of Odisha have logged minimum temperatures below 20 degree Celsius in the last 24 hours, highly unusual for the month of October.

“In addition, heavy early-season snow has also been pounding the higher elevations of India.

All this doesn’t bode well for India’s winter season which is expected to hold colder than normal due, in part, to a La Niña emerging in region 3.4 of the Pacific … [and also] a weakened jet stream –linked to low solar activity– [which] is primed to exaggerate the chill by funneling colder Arctic air masses into northeast Asia, as well as the northern hemisphere as a whole.”

Total snow mass is off to rollicking start this season, with every data point –thus far– landing well-above the 1982-2012 average:


As is the case in India, these early accumulations (coupled with this year’s impressive sea ice gains) will lead to colder polar chills dropping down from the Arctic as air masses have to to traverse larger/thicker areas of snow/ice.

Asia’s first truly punishing cold wave of the season is due November 5:

The chill will deliver astonishing snowfall totals, to boot:

Everything is pointing to this NH winter being a doozy.

Prepare accordingly.

A Word on Europe

As Europe enters the heating season with natural gas inventories at historically low levels, policymakers, consumers, and industries are unfortunately left at the mercy of the weather. 

As reported by oilprice.com, following the colder than usual 2020/2021 winter, Europe has been struggling to fill gas storage sites to adequate levels in recent months as Asian buyers have been snapping up LNG cargoes. Buyers prefer to ship LNG to Asia where the price of gas per million British thermal units is higher than the equivalent prices in Europe. 

Despite the fact that the global gas price surge originated from woefully low inventories in Europe and led to record Asian LNG spot prices, Asia is winning the bidding war for spot LNG supply, leaving Europe undersupplied.

With low gas inventories and an already tight gas market, a colder winter –which of course is exactly what’s predicted– will likely send Europe’s gas prices soaring to newer record highs, accelerate the rush to coal and oil products, and leave the continent with no gas in storage before the end of the heating season–meaning many homes could go without heating during the coldest month(s) of the year.

For more on that read the oilprice.com article in full which goes on to suggest that Europe could rely on Russia fill its storage sites.

The COLD TIMES are returning, the mid-latitudes are REFREEZING, in line with the great conjunction, historically low solar activitycloud-nucleating Cosmic Rays, and a meridional jet stream flow (among other forcings).

Both NOAA and NASA appear to agree, if you read between the lines, with NOAA saying we’re entering a ‘full-blown’ Grand Solar Minimum in the late-2020s, and NASA seeing this upcoming solar cycle (25) as “the weakest of the past 200 years”, with the agency correlating previous solar shutdowns to prolonged periods of global cooling here.

Furthermore, we can’t ignore the slew of new scientific papers stating the immense impact The Beaufort Gyre could have on the Gulf Stream, and therefore the climate overall.

    More like policy makers in europe are dependent on the tyrannical russia for natural gas supplies. If covid did not tell everyone that policy makers are clueless and inept and sedicious Not sure what will.

    I liked the Tweet from Rick Thoman about the snowfall in Alaska:

    “The Chugach Mountains in Alaska are being slammed with feet upon feet of snow, with a local maximum of 344″ (28.7′) over a 72-hour period #AKwx”

    I follow your blog regularly and am somewhat mystified by how the Earth’s temperature is rising as shown by the UAH data. With all of the cold records being broken, one would think the temperature would be falling. Do you have and explanation?

      Part of it is that the Arctic is holding anomalously warm–a phenomenon predicted by NASA to occur during GSMs.
      Crucially though, nothing moves in straight lines–climate is cyclic, never linear; but the overall trend is definitely down.

    Re info; in trying to make sense of this often complicated puzzle one must also factor in and appreciate that in-between parallels 40NS the Earth was ice free whilst north and south of these lines it was frozen over with gigantic glaciers. Even so there were parts of Siberia that were ice free as the jet streams and thermal water circulations still happened. Indeed the transitions and states of temperatures gasses and sea levels between entering and leaving ice ages and all points in-between were enormous compared to the forensic in-depth real time satellite records you mention. For sure it’s best to consult with the technicians who decipher the the satellite data as this is not from direct hard wired instrumented measurements of the air or ice. Pear reviewed paleo climate scientific findings also show the recorded evidence of these apparent juxtaposed climatic facets. The ice cores do however clearly validate that CO2 is always driven by temperature and this is also evident with current land and satellite measurements. And one must accept that the laws of thermodynamics cant be modified or ignored or abused as the heat that lands on Earths surface comes directly from the Sun. And whilst there is merit in CO2 providing heat this looks more likely to be from exiting an ice age and providing a kick start to warming it as its heat capacity is almost saturated when its concentration goes above 250 PPM. And this correlates with past CO2 concentrations which have diminished from 8000 PPM to an Earth that over billions of years has gotten cooler – even though it appears hotter in our computerised real time perception
