how sweet is this? (yeah you want to look, its snow related and its a stoke) - Page 2

post #31 of 42

I was wrong, the second half of this storm was in fact a jackpot.  Wow.  At Mt. Bachelor 35'' in 24hr, 55" in 72hr.  All this snow has even caused them to shut down for the day.  Sounds like a mix of 5 feet of un-plowed snow in the parking lot/radio communication station buried/ too much snow built up on the lifts/ and extreme avalanche danger.   And there is still feet of dryer snow in the forecast.  This weekend is going to be awwwwwesome.  Hip Hip

I still don't trust Utah at the moment due to lack of base.  Headed to Seattle.

So, the question is will it mostly be drifted windpacked?

Quote: Mt. Bachelor weather:

Current Weather - Snowing heavily. Mid-mountain wind is estimated at 35-50 mph with occasional higher gusts.

Snow Surface - Extremely deep snow. Educate yourself about Tree Well Safety... with the deep snow, Tree Wells are becoming a hidden danger.

Northern Colorado looking much better over the weekend.  A foot or more in many places.

I was able to get out the last 2 days....but low visibility from non-stop snowing was a bummer....

Plus, it was too deep and soft....I mean snow would fly up and hit me in the face sometimes....got my goggles wet.......reaaaalllllly annoying!!!

and the dead bear carcasses littered around Vail...

snow should come with a choking hazard warning on the lift ticket.
