The rain has come through, clearing the snow off the trees and settling everything down.

The good: I don’t have to shovel off the roof of my container house/storage space (it’s melted down nicely).

The bad: the snowpack has fallen - no big worries there, becasue it will snow again.

If it gets really cold really fast though, we could see an icy layer form in the snowpack and that could mean trouble in the backcountry. Oh, yeah and weird sun cup-like structures on the top of the snow that won’t be fun to ski on until we get more fresh.

So maybe some unpleasant skiing for a short time in the wild world, but the groomed should be safe and fun and maybe even fast.

More good than bad... since the snow is coming.
