Colorado-based snow forecaster Joel Gratz profiled in OutsideOnline.com →

Kudos to our local “powder afficionado”, Joel Gratz of OpenSnow, who was profiled in OutsideOnline.com by Michael Behar:

Gratz is what weather buffs like me call a microscale forecaster, which means he focuses on a particular kind of weather event (in his case, snowfall) for an audience that is particularly interested (skiers and snowboarders). He got started five years ago, frustrated by his inability to find the tailored forecasts he craved. “I was livid whenever I missed a powder day,” he tells me. “Nobody could forecast them, so I started doing it myself.”

A fun look at the guy behind the powder forecast.
