Perishable Powder

If you aren't skiing today, my advice is that you call in sick tomorrow.  Whatever humans haven't tracked and trashed today, Mother Nature is going to take care of the next couple of days.

The GFS is calling for a rapid rebound in 700-mb (crest level) temperatures to -4ºC by late tomorrow afternoon and 0ºC by Wednesday afternoon.

For the powder on all but shady upper-elevation northerly aspects, this means easy come, easy go.  Our brief flirtation with winter is almost over.  I'm heartbroken already, but it is better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all.


  1. Early to bed, early to rise. Northern aspects and to the boss tell lies.

    1. That's a good one, although in my group, it goes "Early to bed, early to rise. Best to break trail for the boss than to tell lies."

  2. It's coming down heavily in Sandy right now. Here's to hoping a few more inches in the Cottonwoods await in the morning.
