Monday night brought another blanket of snow to the Sierra. This was a wet blanket about 6 to 10 inches deep. The morning bell at Summit Chair soon continued the tradition of falling precipitation that has continued off and on all day. It was wet snow, sleet, or perhaps rain that was falling between 9 and 10 in the morning. The upper mountain was hidden in a cloud offering us poor visibility, wet chairs, and fairly strong winds on the ridge top. We strained to see our way down Sunspot, D7, and Peril Ridge for an hour and then gave up. The snow on the upper mountain, above Roundhouse was not bad. It was heavy, but turns were not too hard to complete.
A chest shot of heavy snow occurred on the steeper slopes. The snow below Roundhouse was stiff, heavy, wet, and more difficult to maneuver. This was truly a spring snow morning without the sun. Visibility may have improved at times during the day, but the snow remained heavy and wet. This afternoon it is snowing again. The temperature is in the low 30’s and the snow is again wet. More snow is predicted overnight.
Enjoy your day. Andy
