The reason

for the great amount of snowfall on
Ben Lomond is a combination of its
northern position in the range and its
proximity to the Great Salt Lake, where
the storms pick up steam in a term known
to meteorologists as the "lake effect."

Re: The reason

I’m well aware of why Ben Lomond has so much snow. I see it every day :) The “lake effect” definitely helps the Wasatch Mountains receive large amounts of snow in winter. Yes, this Ben Lomond was named after the one in Scotland.

Re: When is this miserable winter supposed to end?

Thank you. Comments are always nice because nobody already knows everything :)

This winter isn’t miserable. We've had so many years of drought that it's good to have a lot of snow for a change. Skiing in June...I think Mockba would ski all year if he could!

Re: Aaaaaaaaaaaah !

Everybody is entitled to their own opinions,
and there are many opinions in mountaineering.
The best thing I like about snow is watching
it melt!!! Have fun. : - ))))
