Another day when I need to get out and go before new snow reports are issued - but I'll write this part and hang on to the last minute and put in whatever fresh data there is in the listing below (* indicates an old report).

The good news: it's snowing again.

As we've seen so much this year, the snow is coming down pretty steadily, but not with the great big flakes that are so common when we're getting a really good snowfall. Maybe that will change through the day, as heavy snow is predicted for later today (luckily, heavy rain is also on the forecast, and we appear to have dodged that particular precipitation bullet).

Not much accumulation yet, but if it keeps snowing like it is now we will have a little extra for some snowpacks that actually went down during the week with that sun and nice weather (I told you not to get sucked in by those bluebird skies!).

It's still pretty rough for those traveling into the backcountry, as we just don't have enough snow to cover up the saplings. The snow itself became pretty stable this week, following the sluffing after the last big fall. With that sun crust in some areas, though, be careful if we do see heavy snowfall today and into the weekend, as it could form a weak layer and increase the avalanche danger. Generally, a little time and Myoko's moderate temperatures will see these kinds of layers disappear fairly quickly, but that doesn't mean we can't have some persistent problems in the backcountry. Communications is key: talk to as many people as you can, and remember a snowpit is best thought of as a confirmation of information you already have. I'll try and do the same and share local info right here in this listing.
