  3. 3. Orographic lifting• Rainiest places are mostly on wind ward sides of mountains• Rain shadow deserts can occur on lee ward sides of mountains• If air descends it cools adiabaticallyhttp://www.examiner.com/outdoorsman-in-salt- lake-city/understanding-why-utah-has-the- greatest-snow-on-earth-part-1-orographic-lifting
