Downhill skier and meteorologist Larry Schick will present his unique view on winter weather and how it affects ski slopes in the Pacific NW.  He has skied more than 60 ski areas in the Western U.S. and British Columbia. He started the Powder Alert in 1996. Since then he has anointed himself the Grand Poobah of Powder.   He's been humbly serving NW skiers for decades with accurate powder forecasts.
