the north/east sheltered terrain is getting surface hoar development in protected areas.  Hopefully the next storms will have enough wind to blow that away

Red Flags

Poor Snowpack Structure
Comments: 

It's probably a good thing the last storm came in wet and created a bit of a "base" or our skis/boards would be sinking through the facet fest just as my boots do in transitions and my poles do if I push on them at all.  

If I was an avalanche I'd be pretty excited for any storms that come in for the foreseeable future.  

When we will see the end of this plague?  February, March....December?
