What is a "Shoulder Season?" on 10/01/2010 19:00:56 MDT Print View

In the Sierras you can get a major dumping of snow in mid September and in October you can get a heat wave in the high country. Who came up with the term? I have two shoulders are there two seasons? Is global warming adding to the shoulder season are seasons?
Any weather experts out there?

It's trendier than saying "spring" and "fall".

Some people would view California's weather as one big shoulder season! :)

I always heard it in reference to resort areas. Shoulder season(s) being the cusps of the tourist season when the crowds are smaller, deals are bigger, and weather a bit more questionable.

I think it's that time of the year when you have to lug all that extra stuff on your shoulders! <(o_O")?
