January 3, 2023. The countdown is on.

Year 46 of Ruby is 10 days away.

The mountains are caked in some of the best January conditions we have seen.

All the terrain is on and filled in.

It is a great relief to have the early season snow and have the mountains look as beautiful as they do currently.

Active weather is expected through the long term forecast with multiple storm systems expected to impact the Great Basin through mid-month.

We will learn a lot more in the next week. The aircraft arrives on the 6th, guides on the 8th and the first guests come in January 12th.

We took in the view this evening from the top of Conrad Creek. The countdown is on to begin year 46.
