Crazy March weather continues to preserve the snow not only on the slopes but over the entire mountain. It is all still white however that could change with rain and warm temps tonight and tomorrow. The base is still very deep for this time of year. It is clouding up now.
The surface conditions have been loose and frozen granular but very flat as the excellent grooming keeps all trails very easy. The west (Claire’s) has been opening only in the afternoon as it takes time to soften a bit.
Temps at night have been in the low teens and single digits. This AM there was an inversion as the summit recorded 30 while only 14 at the base. It is now in the low 40’s on both the top and base. The sun has been brilliant for the past 3 days but the wind was a factor until today when it finally died down a bit. Very variable weather due for the next 4 days including warmth, rain, snow, wind and a return to cold.
