Crazy, that is what it was last weekend with about 5' of snow falling. Since then we have had some rain and a little snow melt, but another 14" or so fell after that. Seems Feb is trying to make up for the very lame January.

So far this season has been one of the coldest I can remember. There has not been one thaw day since the start of the season and temps continue to run in the teens and 20's. This makes for awesome dry snow, but cold and its tough to keep the feet and hands warm. This weekend is supposed to be more of the same with high temps in the low to mid teens.

The past weekend was almost perfect. About 8" of fresh over firm with temps in the low 20's it made for some very dry powder riding. I don't think we have had any melting so far this season so even though we are a bit below normal in snowfall, the cold temps have preserved all that has fallen and our depth is very good with the quality far above normal.
Base: 4 1/2'

Epic snow for the first weekend. All areas (except Hyak) were open, even night skiing was going. Coverage is good and the snow doesn't get much better. Temps in the low 20's and around 2' of snow fell from fri - sunday. A skier died at Alpental Sunday, falling into a tree well. The snow is fun, but it is also a dangerous time. Temps are predicted to fall to around zero this weekend so it should be a chill'n one.
