Still Snowing

At 4 PM Ski Patroller Ryan went by the snow stake and reported 4" during the day. It has been snowing heavily since then. I just got off the hill about 6:45. There had to be a couple more inches since Ryan's report. There was a good West wind blowing when I was on the Summit. The forecast for tonight was 1". We already clobbered that. I think Wednesday is going to be an exceptional powder day at the old Basin. I will check in with the morning avalanche forecaster and give another blog update, early. Wednesday is the kind of day that you want to be already standing in the Pali maze when the lift opens. Powder skiing is for early risers.
