February 26, 2024. windy.

Strong winds, with consistent gusts in the 50-60 mph range throughout the day ahead of a strong low pressure system moving in this evening.

Winds so strong we couldn’t even open the hangar door for an aircraft orientation.

Conrad Creek and the snowcats came up big, yet again.

Seven runs in Conrad Creek with a mix of wind affected, soft snow, and cold recrystallized powder.

Precipitation is expected to increase this evening with a reset likely by morning.

As powerful as the system is, it moves out quick with clearing skies and decreasing wind forecasted by mid-morning and a flyable condition likely.

See you tomorrow.

Sleep well.
