March 2, 2022. Extras in Talbot.

20 runs in three days and two extra runs today in Talbot Creek for the three day tour.

Good skiing conditions with cold shallow powder on north faces.

A temperature crust exists on solar aspects and lower elevations due to the warm daytime temperatures the last 3 days.

The crust generally comes off around 10 AM with the heat then comes back on around 2 PM when the sun dips below ridges.

A return to winter is looming with a strong Pacific system set to impact the Great Basin and Ruby Mountains Friday afternoon bringing accumulating snow for the weekend.

16 guests arrive tonight for tomorrow’s single day tour followed by another 16 tomorrow for the weekend three day.
