    Flying guns yesterday morning, with the temps this coming week, it should be great snow making,
    possible to use 10-15 million gallons per day if the temperatures are ideal.

    Surface Hoar was enjoying the cold temps.

    Stratus layer being very persistent south of us.

    Peak to Valley Race Friday, winning time was 4:54:04 Ryan Oughtred.

For the forecast we will see a very cold dry pattern for the forecast period. We may see a bit of cloud around today. Not much more to say except dress warm and get out the sun screen. An upper trough may brush by the area on Sunday but unlikely to have any affect on our zone, maybe some clouds. Mid mountain temps for next week look to be around -15 to -20. Get out the down, watch for frostbite. At -10 with a 20 KPH wind, the wind chill is equal to -18.

    Possible to get some cloud on Sunday Afternoon.

    Dry weather!!
