Powder Update – Wednesday 10:30amPosted: January 7, 2009
Back at the computer for a quick post after a great morning of avalanche control and after having visited our weather plot on the back side. As expected, there was no wind-affected snow; in fact, it was light, dry powder, and it continues to come down. There are no lift lines, so this is going to be a great week to get to the Lake and enjoy powder all day long.
Some significant numbers from our Pika plot (as of 10:30am today):
- 24hr snowfall – 27cm
- Since 3:00pm yesterday – 19cm
Of course, when it’s snowing, the photography is difficult, and I’m okay with that. The shot below was taken around tree line, where the trees add a little definition to the slope.
