Much like the rest of the Western US, the Rubies have been under high pressure for second week of January and it looks to persist for at least the next week.

The Ruby Mountains received more than a meter of snow with the strong low pressure December storm cycle which impacted the majority of the West Coast.

We have limited observations, however the aircraft and guides arrived today so we will begin our initial assessment of terrain and snowpack tomorrow with guide training.

All snotel sites in the Rubies which read snow water equivalent are all more than 140% of normal.

There is good skiing around. Especially above 9,000 feet in north facing terrain.
We will know more tomorrow, our first day on the mountain.
