El Niño is a weather phenomenon that occurs every few years in the Pacific Ocean.
It can have a significant impact on weather patterns around the world, including during ski seasons.
During El Niño years, the Pacific Northwest tends to receive more precipitation than usual, while the Southwest tends to be drier than usual.
The effects of El Niño on ski seasons can vary depending on the location of the ski resort.
Ski resorts in the Pacific Northwest may see more snow during El Niño years, while ski resorts in the Southwest may struggle with less snow.
It is difficult to predict exactly what El Niño will bring during the 2023-2024 ski season, but ski resorts should be prepared for a range of weather conditions.
Regardless of the weather, ski resorts can take steps to ensure a successful season, such as investing in snowmaking equipment and offering a variety of activities beyond skiing and snowboarding.
