Season 2 Episode 1, The Brewing Storm

This week in the California Backcountry Report, WEEEEEEE'RE BAAAAAACK!  2020 has been a long year and we are hitting the reset bottom with a new season of CBR.  We talk about an upcoming storm that will be our snow base for the 2020 season.  What does that look like for the various parts of the state and what is new for the podcast this year.


The report is a big-picture discussion of what is going on with the weather and snowpack for a large region.  This isn't intended as travel advice and shouldn't be taken as such.  It is incumbent on all backcountry users to get educated, make their own quality observations, and make their own evidence-based decisions.
