Walking out to sunrise it was 4 degrees with high winds. I estimated the wind chill was -15 degrees. There is currently 4” inches of powdery snow on the ground that’s being blown all around the mountain. Clouds have rolled in with the winds.
Plan and prepare for winter conditions with snow and ice on the trails. I consider ice-traction mandatory for a safe ascent / descent in these conditions.
24 hour temperature range | High: 25 Low: -2
There was a beauty in that.
