After a few days of early reports, I'm running late today--not because I've been out playing in the snow, but trying to keep ahead of the huge amount of snow coming down. Seems like the Myoko glacier is being born; we're buried in the white stuff, and the walls just keep on growing!

But that makes for great skiing, of course. Just a little caution on steeps is a good idea with so much loose snow--it's easy to get yourself buried (or at least stuck) in the big fall.

It's still snowing heavily as of 4pm; hard to tell how much has fallen, but it was up to my waist earlier this morning when I first went out to dig out the cars....
