It’s 4am, it snowed, and I’m about to head out for avalanche control for the second day in a row.
We got 8″ on the stake at home and
10″ 13″ (updated at 5am) at the top. What’s more, it’s still snowing. Hard.
For those of you that come to Crystal today you can follow the patrol–with openings, closures and conditions updates–on Twitter. Our handle is @crystalmtpatrol.
For those of you that aren’t at Crystal today, I wouldn’t follow us on Twitter. That would be cruel. It’s the holidays. You should be kind to yourself.
If you do come, be safe out there. It could be crowded in-bounds and the backcountry avalanche danger is going to be Considerate to High. Come early, get your turns in and start aprés skiing at 2pm. That’s what I’d do if I wasn’t working today.
