It has been snowing lightly for 48hrs. The snow is becoming heavier now with very little wind. 19* at 7:40am. Both of which are good signs. I usually like this type of weather for producing snowmaker storms.
The T-bar is open. I skied the North Bowl today. White Crown was Fergilicious… Pretty sweet to look upon, kinda cruddy when you actually got up close. White Crown was firm where the wind had been blowing. There were pockets of good snow. I dove to the left and skied Avis’s Gully. The gully had more snow blown in about 5″, but I could feel rotten snow underneath.
The main runs were nice. a few inches over some firm snow. We definately need more snow to make it wintery again. I will certainly keep you updated.
Here is the afternoon snow advisory.
A SNOW ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 6 PM MST THIS AFTERNOON.
SNOW WILL CONTINUE ACROSS THE NORTHERN MOUNTAINS TODAY. AN
ADDITIONAL 2 TO 6 INCHES OF SNOW IS EXPECTED IN THE
MOUNTAINS…AND UP TO 3 INCHES IN THE HIGH VALLEYS. NORTHWEST
WINDS OF OF 15 TO 30 MPH IN THE HIGHER ELEVATIONS WILL CAUSE AREAS
OF BLOWING SNOW. SNOW WILL GRADUALLY DECREASE THIS EVENING…BUT
BLOWING SNOW MAY CONTINUE IN THE HIGHER PASSES.
A SNOW ADVISORY MEANS THAT PERIODS OF SNOW WILL CAUSE SOME TRAVEL
DIFFICULTIES. BE PREPARED FOR SNOW COVERED ROADS AND LIMITED
VISIBILITIES IN SNOW AND BLOWING SNOW…AND USE CAUTION WHILE DRIVING.
