January 27, 2023. windy.

30-40 miles per hour ridge-top winds prevented us from flying into terrain today.

We flew guests from the lodge to an established landing in our cat skiing terrain below ridge line, transitioned to the snowcats and skied 6 runs in Conrad Creek before exiting via the aircraft.

A rime crust is present on some North facing aspects from a January 25th moist overnight airmass/ cloud event. The crust has begun to breakdown due to cold nighttime temperatures and very dry Great Basin Desert air.

A weak low pressure system is forecast to move into the area tomorrow night brining a refresh of light snow accumulations.

Year 46 is rolling through January.

More to come.
