The weather shifted today. While the Northeast is getting hammered with feet of snow, we are in full on spring mode with 40+ degree temps at elevation. To say the least, t-shirt type skiing on creamy snow is fun but after decades of being in this business and being accustomed to powder, especially in January, this is getting hard to believe.
After a thin snowpack already (we have a 47″ base at our cabin), now these temperatures, we are in need of a massive bonfire or sacrifice of some sort to kick start winter and fuel Mother Nature with more of Old Man Winter.
Conditions with the heat today have evolved as you would assume. More like late March snow…creamy and warm. Check out the images Ben took from the trip and you’ll see exactly the type of snow we got everyone on.
