The National Weather Serive says Mount Bachelor should get snow much of this week, but other area resorts will probably see more rain than snow.
 
Meteorologist Josh Smith says Hoo Doo and Willamette will probably see just rain this week, and there's better news for Mt. Hood.
 
 " IT LOOKS LIKE AT MT HOOD THEY COULD BE GETTING A MIX OF RAIN AND SNOW - THEY ARE RIGHT AT THE SNOW LEVEL - MOUNT BACHELOR IS YOUR BEST BET FOR POWDER through NEXT WEEK."
 
Smith also says weather models this season are projecting a below normal snow pack, they've revised an earlier report that estimated higher temperatures.
So that means the snow our local mountains do get, should stay around longer.
 
"it looks like the temperatures which were previously forecasted to be normal to above normal are now forecasted to be normal - so that may have an impact on the ski areas where they would now get snow rather than rain for precipitation."
 
Smith spoke with 1110 KBND news Tuesday morning.  Weather permitting, Mount Bachelor is planning to open on November 21st and Hoo Doo Ski Resort should open on November 23rd.
