Really nice snowfall through the day and into the night; probably a total of 30-40cm (hard to know for sure, as I snow-throwed last night once, and there's an additional 10-15 this morning, and the reports aren't in early or don't really reflect the new snow).

This morning it is sunny and beautiful, a perfect day for enjoying the snow. No wind yet either, although the national news says we should be seeing some breezes. Maybe the low-pressure cell has completely moved out of this area.

A little bit of concern for the backcountry, as people were reporting yesterday that the new snow was breaking pretty easily on the hard snow below. The sun today should help stabilize things in the longer run, but we could see slides in the meantime. I'll be out there and being careful as well.
