Today started off with beautiful sunny skies, which lasted most of the morning. The clouds rolled in early in the afternoon and we went from flurries to snowing hard in a short amount of time. The snowflakes got really big for a while reducing visibility. The photo of Lower Morse Liftline shows the low visibility.

We received an inch of new snow this afternoon and we could see another inch of accumulation tonight.

Monster Storm!

Rockin’ Ron for Hugh. There’s lots of forecasts, prognostications, and Nostradamifications out there, but I’m going with 2 to 3 feet of new snow by Thursday! I got to take epic runs today with my Toronto friends Eire, Erieann, and Marie. The snow was creamy and dreamy and falling steadily. Upper FIS was soft moguls with plenty o’ pow and Playground was carvin-a-licious. Shout out to Rena from Patrol for some advice on ski bindings.

BTW – 8 INCHES OF NEW SNOW IN THE PAST 12 HOURS!!!!!!!!
