The storm that came in warm and saw snow levels plummet, left us with a right side up snowpack and no bottom. Conditions were surprisingly stable and moderate settlement was observed, making for reasonable backcountry travel albeit challenging trail-breaking.
With more than 300” of snow through the mountains, conditions are set up for a long season of skiing.
More snow is in the forecast, with up to 4 more feet expected by Monday and an active pattern anticipated through mid-February.
