OnTheSnow is bringing you the expertise of one of the world’s most trusted mountain meteorologists to ensure you have a great ski experience every time you hit the slopes. This season, we're continuing our Snow Before You Go series, which will bring you an exclusive look at the best ski conditions for the upcoming weekend and beyond.
For more than 10 years, skiers and mountaineers around the world have trusted meteorologist Chris Tomer for the most reliable mountain weather forecasts. Similar to last ski season, Tomer is partnering with OnTheSnow to bring you Snow Before You Go forecasts tailored to skiers in North America.
"People want to know where the best snow will be – before they leave the house. That's what I deliver,” says Tomer. Snow Before You Go will be tailored to skiers looking for a long weekend, along with those planning a full-blown resort vacation. Tomer’s forecasts will be published on OnTheSnow.com along with OnTheSnow’s Ski & Snow Report app for iPhone and Android.
Tomer has forecast for more than 50 worldwide mountaineering expeditions. Many of his clients are repeat customers of Tomer Weather Solutions, and draw on his experience for a successful summit. His forecasts were key to the award-winning Sleeping on the Summits: Colorado 14ers High Bivy project, of which he is a co-author. Tomer has likely seen more weather develop and unfold at 14,000 feet than any other meteorologist around the world.
Tomer not only forecasts the weather, but is also constantly out playing in it. He's an avid backcountry skier, mountain climber and trail runner. Tomer has climbed all of Colorado’s famed 14ers in both summer and winter, including numerous ski descents.
Colorado residents can also watch meteorologist Chris Tomer on KWGN Channel 2 and KDVR FOX31. Tomer appears live on Channel 2 “Daybreak,” M–F, 5 a.m.–9 a.m. He also makes appearances on FOX31’s “Everyday” show.
