(March 27 report) The season ended with snow, still great coverage on the hill from top to bottom at Hyak. West closed a week earlier then Hyak March 26. Central will run a couple more weeks then finish out with Alpental. Overall a great season even with less then average snowfall once again.

February was great, with over 100" of snowfall and cold temps for the most part. Snow just keeps stacking up and depths are good. Rain has been hitting now and then with lots of rain this weekend after 3' + snowfall through the week. Next week looks to be warm with more rain in the forecast. One more week of operation at West then they start their shutdown routine.

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.
