+20cm Overnight at Lake LouisePosted: January 29, 2011
Heading out for a little avalanche control this morning, but in short:
20cm of new snow overnight (as of 5:00am) + light winds + -13C at mountaintop = COLD SMOKE!
Light winds means that avalanche control will proceed more quickly than usual, and runs should open in short order. For this month, our snowfall total is 151cm, which is two centimetres shy of second best January on record. It’s still snowing lightly at 8:00am, so once again, we’re going to have another epic weekend of great skiing at Lake Louise. More later…
