Computers, servers and the Internets are all purring along today, and I have to drive to the big city, so it’s time for an early morning report.

The weather is turning as I write this at around 7am; there was a very light dusting of snow on the car earlier as I headed up to the snow study plot near the resort base, and the snowfall is picking up at the moment. Offshore, the winds are coming from the east/northeast, which is kind of weird…. Snow usually comes with strong west and northwest winds. Maybe this is coming along with the rise in the freezing line—it will be 0°C all the way up at 1850m on Sunday the forecast says, meaning it will be even warmer below. But that’s going to drop back down just in time for Christmas, with another cycle of heavy snow. Yea! GEtting some good muscles (and a strong accelerator/brake foot) this season already from moving snow around.

I’ll add what new reports there are below (marked with NEW for 12/21). For the others, there was no new snowfall yesterday, and the pack did settle nicely through the day.
