Wow. Gorgeous shot. So how many days per week can you expect this much clarity? (lol, please tell me you can assess this based on weekly frequency and not monthly....or seasonally)
Is there an ugly ski town? I mean there is a hill and snow right? Beautiful.
It varies per season. The sooner the lakes freeze the better. This year the lake at the valley floor has not frozen, but even close. Consequently, I have had ONE day with blue sky in 20. Normally, it's roughly 60-75% clear. (Just based on my picture of the day, looking back.)
The town is not ugly.
