I know enough of the sunrise sunset pictures, what ever happened to shots with people riding the power!

This is a picture from 2 years ago, that's what I am talking about.

At 2284 meters the temperature was -4, winds were 15-30 KPH from the S. At 1650 meters the temperature was - .5, 0 cm of new snow recorded there. Observations taken at 06:00 Hrs.

Another day of unsettled blah weather. Looking into the future it appears we could be in for a full blown La Nada  cycle.  Looks like some light snow is coming for early next week but this dirty ridge situation does not look to be ending very quickly. Front will move through our area by this afternoon, ridge will build for Friday and Saturday. A weak weather system will affect the area Sunday and Monday. Perhaps we will get some snow by Tuesday. Dribs and drabs of snow possible for today. Best guess would be 2 cm.

For the Peak to Valley race, all is still looking favourable for both days, Friday maybe the best day.The freezing level on Saturday still appears to be above 2000 meters.

Looking way back in the past at some rather large events that happened in Europe:

At least it was mostly sunny yesterday, if its not going to snow bring on the sunshine.

Minimal solar effect yesterday in Lakeside Bowl.

Yesterday ended with the arrival of higher clouds!
