Winds are light from the northeast.
For today, we'll have sunny skies with high cirrus filtering through overhead by the afternoon. Winds will start to back to the southwest and blow 15mph with gusts to 20. Temperatures will be sweltering by the afternoon and early evening with base temps pushing into the upper 50s as alpine temps reach the mid-40s.
Corn skiing and riding is excellent, although the window will close earlier today than yesterday. Coverage is getting thin with many solar aspects burned off completely. Monte Cristo seems to have the most snow with 50" on the stake.
A largely dry cold front pushes through in the wee hours overnight, dropping mountain temperatures back into the single digits this weekend. We'll see 25-30mph winds from the southwest tonight into tomorrow before veering to the northwest Saturday night. Ridgetop winds continue to blow 20-25mph on Sunday. The weather models continue to point towards a return to winter next week.
