Many snowmobilers are getting into the back country these days. The trend seems to be more people are sled skiing\boarding.

At 2280 meters the temperature was - 5.5, winds were 55-85 KPH from the South as of 06:00. At 1550 meters the temperature was - 1, relative humidity was 88 %, and the barometer is falling slightly. 1 cm recorded at cat skinner and 2 cm fell at pig alley last night.  In the valley it is +1. With those winds it certainly will slab up in exposed areas.
