I read somewhere some time ago that it was scientifically proven that there is always a high heat period before an ice age.
What we are basically doing is hpjust hurrying the process up. The chance is really high that there is an upcoming ice age. So it is possible glaciers to be growing.

Yeah buddy!!! Squaw valley!!! That's my mountain. While it's true they got plenty of snow, 58 feet is a bit of a lie. That's a total of the best possible estimation. Kinda like, batteries lasting for 48 hours. They take the highest numbers in their tests and use that as their standard.
Either way Tahoe is looking better than it has. Problem is, two good seasons does not set a trend. I still need more evidence either way. I don't subscribe to nor do I dismiss the "climate change" hype.
In any case, thanks for the Squaw high light. Love that resort.

Short answer, no.
Glaciers are receding across the Earth.
Longer answer, some are growing and most are shrinking. 7/9 of the links are emphatically clear about most glaciers receding. The few that are growing (regional climate variability) are away from the poles in Argentina, Pakistan and NZ.
