Losing Ground

I'm sharing today some remarkable satellite images of Mount Shasta that were posted by a reader of the California Weather Blog.

A bad snow year is one thing, but losing ground is painful.  Here's the latest web cam from the Mount Shasta Ski (er Dust) Park.

One of our students who is working in California sent me this photo looking across Donner Pass from Judah Peak where they found 150 vertical feet of recrystalized snow on north aspects after a 3 hour drive.

Of course, there's no such thing as bad turns, only some turns are better than others.  Then again, there's nothing wrong with winter hiking.
