I kind of feel like I'm repeating myself, as these cycles of warm, sunny, rainy, colder, snowing keep going on.... After some pretty heavy rain yesterday, we're back to snow again, with some occasionally strong winds from the north that could slow down some lift operations. Probably not a whole lot of new snow - maybe 5-10cm - but we are getting some mini-cornices forming outside the house, so the real ones are probably also getting bigger. Again (careful, backcountry adventurers, in the sunny days ahead).

And (wait for it...) it will be sunny again from tomorrow! I would say another cycle, although this time it looks like the freezing line will be staying pretty high, meaning warmer temperatures over the weekend, sun for the next couple of days until (blech) it starts to rain again, perhaps even pretty heavy around Monday. Although, to be an optimist, you have to admit that a little rain can lubricate that sticky spring snow on the ski runs.
