Well, the weatherman was slightly off yesterday. Okay, he missed by a mile. The fog hunkered down and thickened up and visibility was nearly zero most of the day. A few flakes fell early in the afternoon, but there was no new snow to speak of overnight.

This morning, not a cloud in the sky and the wind is calm. Visibility is excellent and the views from the upper slopes should be spectacular. The temperature dropped to -4º earlier, but is currently 3º and set to soar through mid-afternoon so it's probably best to get out early before the snow softens up.

Ski school is closed today at Kumado.

Local roads are drying out quickly, but don't forget your chains, just in case.

Rain is forecast for tomorrow evening and Saturday, but the sun should peek through the clouds on Sunday. All of this is speculation, of course, since the weather can change from one minute to the next in the mountains, so stay tuned.
