    Sunrise Sunday morning, February 9, 2014.

    Mid Day the clouds remained to the South.

    Mid Day looking North.

    Sunset Sunday, the front is teasing us, painful how slow it is moving towards us.

    Surface hoar just below tree line.

The warm frontal band is now moving through our zone, just began to snow at 06:30 hrs in the valley. A wet weather pattern will continue all week into next weekend with successive fronts and at times windy conditions. The front for Tuesday night is looking juicer and we should see heavy snowfall at times. Guesstimates: 10-12 cm by Tuesday morning, 15-20 cm by Wednesday morning, 5-8 cm by Thursday morning, 10-15 cm by Friday morning. Freezing levels will rise to around 1000 meters and drop to the valley as the fronts move through.




    Clouds were so close yesterday, still another great day on the hill, warmer than the past week.

    The low will hopefully track our way!

    The past week has been a great week to get the runs in shape for the natural snow.

    Clouds were getting closer near days end.

    Still many crevasses to be buried this week.
