d.e., I couldn't agree more with you. In fact spoke at length with Ethan Greene yesterday (CAIC director) about some collaborative work. Some of this touches on exactly that; providing localized weather, snow, and avalanche observations. The focus will remain the Northern Mountains in the foreseeable future.
teleboater.. sorry, you will have to create a new login for Powderbuzz. Powderbuzz and Mountainbuzz are seperate entities, although Andy and I may still partner up on projects.
