North & East

As mentioned in an earlier post, the mountain continues to hold snow on certain aspects. As we approach the winter solstice, the sun is tracking lower in the sky with each passing day. Combined with relatively cool temps at night, we have managed to hang onto much of the snow we received in October and November on the north and east aspects. On the other hand, the south slopes are essentially bare ground. Fortunately, much of our ski terrain is on these cooler NE slopes (see the slope aspect map below). We are hanging onto what we have and hoping for more soon. Stand by and stay positive.
