There was a lot of snow falling yesterday, lots of wind and blowing.. the total wasn’t as dramatic as might have been expected, especially with drifts covering cars. First time to have real cornices forming outside the building here, too. Not a great sign for up in the hills, where there is almost certainly wind-deposited snow and fresh growth on the cornices that backcountry travelers should be pretty careful about. But the sun keeps trying to peek out, so it should be a great day at the resorts (and maybe not insanely crowded, either, after all the new reports about the heavy snow).

I know some people might be surprised with the snow reading for today; I was! I noticed it’s settled a lot already, with a little cone forming on the vertical pole at the center of my snow board showing how the pack is really settling, perhaps becasue of the kind of crystals that were coming down. Still a lot of snow out there, and maybe more at higher elevations. Noticeably colder than yesterday, too.
