Sunny and surprisingly cold this morning, especially after the warm sun of yesterday. Hard to believe that the forecast for tonight is heavy rain, but maybe we'll get lucky again and it will instead be snow. Even if it is rain, though, the snow is well settled and the rain should only further consolidate the snowpack, not increase the avalanche danger.

Skiing in the areas was reportedly very good yesterday, with fine conditions, if a bit soft snow (thus a happy day for the telemarkers, who remind you that ice is for cocktails). In the hills, sunny areas had a bit of sun crust, but not unmanageable, with north-facing slopes still holding some very sweet powder stashes. Looks like another great day, and we'll just have to see how the snow develops as we move into the next weather cycle over the coming days.
