Rocky Mountians http://www.kplu.org en Rocky Mountains have less snow more warmth http://www.kplu.org/post/rocky-mountains-have-less-snow-more-warmth <p>Idaho isn&rsquo;t the only state in the west that&rsquo;s been dry for more than a month. Most of the Rocky Mountain region is experiencing lower than normal snowfalls and higher than normal temperatures.</p><p>The general lack of winter forced the cancelation of Idaho&rsquo;s State Special Olympics Winter Games. Boise&rsquo;s local ski area, Bogus Basin, isn&rsquo;t even open yet. In 69 years, Bogus Basin has never seen such a snowless season.</p><p> Thu, 12 Jan 2012 19:33:47 +0000 Emily Schwing 3699 at http://www.kplu.org Rocky Mountains have less snow more warmth
