A little light snow today, after a good fall yesterday. The sun peeked out for a few minutes an hour or so ago, but we're back to clouds and occasional snow. It's nice and cold, though, keeping the snow conditions good, and the powder yesterday was lighter and better settled than it's been over recent days.

Looks like warmer weather ahead toward the end of this week--did I actually see a rain mark out there? Hopefully that's one weather icon that will be changing during the week, although it does seem likely that the freezing line will continue to go up the mountain (meaning warmer weather). These changes in sun and temperature have some local guides a bit nervous about the slope conditions; there is a weak layer in the snow that my neighbor/guide is still shaking his head about a bit -- he's avoiding some of the steepest slopes.

As always, be careful in questionable areas, and carry your avalanche gear (and a friend) even if you're just going off the lifts.
