Over the years I found that measuring the depth of the pile of laundry in the corner of the room seems to provide an accurate measurement of how much powder has recently fallen outside. Let’s just say that at one point during the end of February the pile got nearly 4 feet deep in under a week from just one storm cycle. It took 4 loads on the heavy duty cycle to clear the pile in the corner. The deep powder was short lived as March brought with it highs in the upper forties at the valley floor. Just as quick as it came it is now disappearing. The only thing it really means we have to work a little harder to find the goods and work a little less doing the laundry.
Here are a couple pics from the past month. With the snow pack settling under warm temps and the avalanche danger dropping we are heading back up to the high peaks this week so check back in for some new trip reports.
