11 inches new today and 19 inches for the week. I love the buzz of an early morning snow day at the ski area. The snow plows are clearing the lots. The snow cats are packing out The Beach. The base area crew is clearing the walkways with shovels and the Bobcat. The lift mechanics are firing up the chairlifts. The lift ops are clearing the ramps and re-setting the mazes. I can hear steady series of booms from the Ski Patrol avalanche work. The staff is very focused, but smiling. This will be a special day.
The moon-set was especially good this morning.
