Happy New Year

Snow shower to the south

Greetings from the Summit and Happy New Year to all! Mother Nature certainly smiled upon the summit today as the clouds have moved from atop our perch to cover the valleys, giving us a beautiful view of a partial undercast. Some high cirrus clouds filter the sunlight, giving a reddish hue to the clouds on our southeastern horizon. Winds last night were around 70 to 80 mph and we gusted over 100 mph early this morning. These have since lessened to more bearable levels, making the experience outside particularly sublime. With summit temperatures rising, it is perfect for getting outside and enjoying the view. Hopefully Mother Nature makes a resolution to help out our ski resorts (and avid skiers/boarders) and produce more snow for the coming year. Here’s wishing all a Happy and Safe New Year, with some more winter fun!

Here are some more pictures from today:
