I snuck out of the office this afternoon for a few spins on The North Side. That place is completely buffed. These winds were VERY KIND. If the lift would not have closed, I'd still be out there. Just flat, smooth, buffed, and perfect. All the forecasts (Joel at Opensnow, CAIC, CAIC point forecast, and NOAA) are indicating a decent storm tonight with new snowfall in the 4-9" range and W-NW wind in the 15-25 mph range. If that snow and wind falls on our currently buffed out North Side snow, the skiing in the morning will be worth calling in sick for. See you at Pali at 9.
