SPRING DOWN LOW, WINTER UP HIGH - APRIL 4, 2012


The skin track to "25 Short" is barely hanging on at the valley floor - 4/3/12

The valley floor is rapidly melting out, especially on the south end, with areas of open water at creek crossings growing by the day.  Travel is still possible without having to take off your skis too much, but it won't be long before the "on/off game" gets serious!  Above 10,000' winter still persists, with periods of light snowfall preventing "corn snow" from fully establishing itself.  Currently, the good "corn skiing" is still predominantly below 10,000'

Buck Mountain & Peak 10,696' are still looking healthy! - 4/3/12
