Merry Christmas
One whole cm recorded over night. Maximum temperature at 2260 meters was -3 at 18:00 Hrs Dec 24, and Max temperature of  0 at 1550 meters was at 0645 this morning. Freezing level stayed below the forecasted levels. With these strong zonal flows the weather models are not as accurate, off by 4-6 hours, or not even close.
Yesterday produced mostly size 1 avalanches with explosive and ski testing with a couple of size 2's on the larger start zones. Some areas remained closed due to the continuous redistribution of the snow over various surfaces.
