Great Weekend

Although we have overcast skies this morning those clouds are supposed to clear out later.

The weekend forecast is for clear and sunny skies with daytime temperatures in the upper 50s.

Looks like a perfect time for hitting the slopes, cross-country skiing, or a snowshoe trek.

All of the main roads are open and clear.

Below is a webcam image from Diamond Peak.

Between Storms


We are in the lull between storms this morning and, as you can see in the above webcam capture, it’s beautiful here.

Great day to ski, snowshoe, or find a nice sledding hill.

For those of you who don’t feel especially energetic, the road that circles the lake is open with no controls. That drive, which is about 72 miles, is an incredible scenic experience.
