Since I was throwing numbers around yesterday, I should also mention we had 77 inches of snow between January 4 and 12. An impressive number considering the average snowfall for the entire month of January is 45 inches. The snow images everywhere you look are jaw dropping. The East Wall has plenty of snow. The Ski Patrol has done an extensive amount of work up there, but still has a lot to go. Throughout the days, we have heard a consistent stream of booms coming from their avalanche work. Keep looking East. We are shaping up for a stellar East Wall / East Wall hiking season.
