Good start to the storm, 4" new this morning.
Obviously, the East Wall is starting to look pretty good. With 4" of new snow today and more in the forecast the next few days, the outlook is bright. You will continue to see lots of patrol activity out there with ski cutting and explosives in North Pole and The Tree Chutes and avalauncher use high in the middle portion of the Wall. So, my official East Wall opening date statement has changed from "I don't know" to "Fairly soon." Stay tuned, I am feeling pretty good about this.
