A happy new year, indeed. After mixed precipitation here the past week (rain, then snow, then rain on top of snow, then snow….), the weather guys finally low-balled the forecast. What resulted was pure winter. Rain at the lake translated into lots of snow at Heavenly, and N and I finally had a powder day. No wind, non-stop snow meant tracks were covered up, and the trees were lusciously skiable. We had intended to go up for just a few hours, then take the dog out for a lap on Waterhouse, but in the end the great conditions kept us there until 3. Poor pup.
Today was one of those days that confirmed why I live here.
