Snowed all day yesterday and last night on the mountain above 7000 ft. The base lodge is just below 7000 ft. so the snow didn't really stick until the sun went down. Ended up with 3 inches at the base and 8 inches on top. A nice base layer to make snow on. The snow guns fired up and made snow this morning.

It will be cold all week with another weak storm to drop a few inches tomorrow night and reinforce the cold air. After that it is quiet into the weekend.

We start to warm slightly this weekend as the ridge gets a little closer. Next week the ridge stays just offshore. We should get a few shots of colder air from systems to our East. One good thing is that the winds will keep up which will limit inversions at night and help to keep the snow making going top to bottom on the mountain. Interesting to watch the MJO as it has gone strong than forecast the past few days and is headed into the Western Pacific. That trend leads me to believe we will see a return of storminess Thanksgiving week. Stay tuned.........BA
