It was a very average February, but that is not all bad since it usually means another 80-100" of snow.  January was almost normal with 101" after a very sub-par December. This winter has been ok, but rain seemed to follow most every storm that fell during Feb.  Near the end it did start to cool down and the snow is at its deepest of the season going into March.  Should be a good spring.

This has been the biggest snowfall week of the season so far. More then 3' of snow, close to 4' have fallen but temps still remain in the low 30's.  Snow is finally stacking up enough to cover the creeks and gives us better hope for a good spring.

This is a wet season so far

My posts have not been as often as I'd like, just keep forgetting.  As for the season so far, its been pretty wet.  We get a good dump of snow then followed up with rain, that seems to be the recipe.  As of Jan 18 the season snow total was exactly the same as Jan 18 of last season. The difference is last year there was zero snow melt and this year we've had plenty.  I don't have the measuring stick any longer since my residence has changed, but there seems to be about 4' of snow on the ground.

Its the start of the 2017/18 season!

First off, this year marks 20 years the Hyak website has been online!  Also, I no longer own a cabin up in division 1 of the Hyak community, sold it over the summer. I am now the owner of a condo at the base of Hyak where the lift is just outside my door!!! (very excited about this)

I'll try to keep the notes a little better this season, and the photo's will keep coming as well.

So far the Summit is up to 50"+ for the season which is good.  Unfortunately unlike last season there has been the normal melt so there is not enough snow yet on the ground to open.  This week looks good so far so keep the fingers crossed.
