Did anyone accurately predict the '18-'19 winter season?

This is the time of year when the winter forecasts start to roll in. We all look at them with eager anticipation: how will skiing be this coming season? Will we get a lot of snow? Did anyone get it right last year?

So how accurate were these predictions? An interesting article in OpenSnow.com provides some insight.

The forecast was totally wrong for SoCal but, in fairness, El Niño can go both ways for us- cold and snowy or Pineapple express. The real question is what will happen this year. Following El Niño, we either have a few “average” seasons or flip right back into drought conditions.

Same here. They were correct in forecasting the moderate El Niño or whatever it was, however, that isn't a predictor of a particular type of ski season/ snow pack.
