real deep snow



storm update

By ccrossen | November 14, 2017

Second system of the week is inbound, this one much more significant, due to arrive Wds-Friday AM, with the heaviest precip Thrs and Thrs evening. This is a very warm system yet again, with snow levels primarily above 8,000′. Below that, depending on how quickly the temps fall Thrs evening, we could see 2-6″ at lake level. Hard to say with these early season storms. For now, we are confided to skiing the high alpine … and up there we’re going to see another good blast, 3’+ of excellent base layer.

Here we go …

By ccrossen | October 30, 2017

a little more clarity to the snow forecast for this weekend. We’re looking at 1-3 feet over the weekend period above 7500. Below that elevation we can see a mix of rain and snow, with accumulations up 6″ or so…. get ready, winter is coming. This event is coming in warm to cold, a perfect start to the season.

We still have remnants of very old snow out there, so pay attention to exactly how this system does come in. Looks like we will have a decent base up high soon.

Weather remains beautiful for the next week. End of next week, however, we will see our first early winter system move in, with decent precip and cold temps, with a first real start to a snowpack up high. And cold air behind it. Stay tuned as the next few days will reveal a lot more information.

Support Your Avy Center

By ccrossen | October 26, 2017

As winter approaches, it’s time to sort through the gear, evaluate goals, and think about past seasons. If you tour, then you should utilize your local navy center on a daily basis. These pros make it possible for us to get a read on the snowpack history, immediate considerations, as well as future potential without having to get out there every single day to evaluate.


These avy centers are grossly underfunded given the number of backcountry enthusiasts whom utilize their skills and information. Help out this season. It doesn’t take much to go a long way given their tiny budget.
