Last week’s storm had the potential to drop three feet of snow on the crest, starting with a wet layer and drying out toward the finish. Unfortunately we have to keep imagining what that would have felt like because the final pulse missed us completely and we only received about a foot of snow. The good news is we received a ton of much needed moisture and the portion that fell as snow is bonding well with the rain crust layer. Beyond that, conditions are still extremely lean. The start to this season is now one of the driest in history along with 1977 and 1991. It’s time to ramp up the sacrificial offerings to ensure the next system delivers in a way this one did not.
