With low expectations it’s very easy to surprise people.
On Sunday the high down in Reno was about 70 degrees… the weather forecast called for dropping temperatures and a bunch of precipitation overnight…. hmmm? It really didn’t feel like ski weather!
Nonetheless, the by late afternoon the winds were howling and the rain was starting to fall. It was still around 45 degrees as I drove home from work around 8pm Sunday night wondering where the snow line might be tonight….?
As the sun rose over Mt Rose pass, winter was all around once again with about 4-6 inches of pretty light wind buffed powder. The rain crust below was well bonded to the new snow and made for some great skiing. Monday was cold and stayed that way through the whole day, even as the sun came out it never got warm enough to radiate our fresh snow.
I won’t be posting everyday of local turns on here all season long… but so far the stoke is high. It just feels so great to get out and fly through the snow again I gotta share some it!
