It's another beautiful day up top. The high yesterday reached the teens, then it got warmer as the night progressed leading to an overnight high of 23 degrees. The low was 0, recorded early yesterday morning. It is currently 23 degrees and clear at 7am observation. The mountain received no new snow, but our total is at about a foot. Be sure to be prepared for slow going conditions! The powder is super fluffy, but there has been nobody on the Alum Cave trail... so it'll be a long day up.
I spent all day yesterday walking around, taking in the vast blue skyscapes framed over snowy majesty, reveling in the quiet, making tea and cookies with friends, watching a stunning sunset and building a top flight sledding ramp (!!!). It was like seeing your old tomboy friend dress up in an evening gown, there's quite simply nothing like the way snow changes the entire character of this place. Magical is not a big enough word. The awe just flows on days like this. Hopefully this is the start of a trend... that will stop right before airlift (:
pow POW pow!!!!!
