...the winters can be fantastically cruel. The Shining
Morning y'all, It's another beautiful, snowy morning up top. The high yesterday reached 4 degrees. The overnight low was -7 degrees. It was -7 degrees and clear at 7am observation. The mountain received no new precipitation and there is still about 3 inches of snow on the ground. The trails still have black ice beneath the snow, so I would recommend traction if you intend to reach the summit. As of this posting, both 441 and Cherokee Orchard road are still closed. Be prepared for bitter cold if you get out there today! Enjoy this snowy, isolated day!
