Wonderful Weekend Weather

This weekend we have seen literally hundreds of hikers and skiers out making the most of the near perfect conditions. Both days have given us continuous sunshine, although with some high clouds present today, along with light winds and mild temperatures. It’s certainly been a very pleasant break from the freezing fog, ice and howling gales we normally experience at this time of year.

Glancing at the radar it looks like things will be changing soon enough though as a large mass of precipitation is slowly heading our way. With the expected mild temperatures, upper 30s to low 40s tomorrow then falling back to the low 30s on Tuesday, it’ll be interesting to see what we end up with – will it be rain, freezing rain, sleet, snow or a little a bit of everything? The ever changing mountain weather is certainly one of the most fascinating aspects of life up here on the rockpile.
