In This Week's California Backcountry Report:
BOMB CYCLONE!!! - 8 Feet Of Snow
It might sound like clickbait or a bad Vegas band name but its not. JB breaks down the weather phenomenon of the Bomb Cyclone (actually known as Bombogenesis Cyclone) and why we will be receiving so much snow. Then a quick overview of the potential of the next storm and what that means for the start of the avalanche season.
Get the details of the next two snowstorms and why conservatively parts of California should be receiving more than 8 feet of snow.
