February 23rd

Mother Nature delivered, but not what they had called for.  As of this morning, we picked up 6” of fluff, which is light and airy and will certainly provide face shots.  There is a current lull in the action but we are expecting things to ramp up again later this afternoon and this evening with more snow forecasted.  Forecasted amounts are for an additional 3-6” possible. 

But backcountry skiers and riders be aware today, tomorrow and through the weekend, all of this light snow is sitting on top of a very firm ice layer and steeper slopes will fracture, slide, sluff and avalanche in no fall zones such as the Notch and above tree line. This is a classic “duff on crust” scenario so please take extreme caution when thinking about skiing steeper slopes of 30-degrees of more today.  Low angle tree skiing will be the best option today. Get out there, enjoy and be smart and safe with your ski lines and choices.
