“La última nevada según yo recuerdo fue para fines de Julio. Tuvimos muchos dias de sol sin viento para poder caminar mucho la montaña buscando polvo. Muy buena nieve en los cerros altos y la mejor crema en las zonas más calientes por la exposición… ahora está nevando leve pero sólo sería por esta noche… luego se ven días de más sol y calor por venir… Santa Rosa nunca falla. La estamos esperando!” – Victor Cancinos, August 27th, 2016

TRANSLATION:

“The last snowfall I can remember was was in the end of July.  We’ve had many days of sun without wind, which has allowed us to get out into the backcountry looking for powder.  Very good snow in the high peaks and great corn in the warmer, sun exposed zones…  It’s snowing lightly now, but it’s only supposed to last tonight…  After this small snowfall more hot, sunny days are coming…  The Santa Rose storm never fails.  We’re counting on it!” – Victor Cancinos (translated by miles clark)

Las Lenas = 70-170cm (28-63″) snowpack right now
