This spring has been unreal. The calendar says it’s spring, but most of our “spring” felt like winter. Storm after storm bombarded our weather and our small mountain town. Though frustrating at times because it was hard to venture into the high country, I can’t complain about the snow. I’ll take it, and I’ll assume it’s Mother Nature’s wedding gift to us 🙂
The snow has been slow to melt. I would estimate we are about 3 weeks behind recent snow melt levels. Because of this, I’ve been able to continue to easily do after work laps at the ski area.
Runs on the front side of the ski area are interrupted by plowed roads. But, head to the backside, and you’ll find perfect icing on cake. A lap on the Headwall can easily be done in two hours if you park at the ski area boundary on Prospect. Frank and I have taken advantage of this easy access and great skiing a few different times in the last couple of weeks.
The last couple of weeks have brought warm temperatures which seem unseasonably warm, but they are probably fairly standard for this time of year. As a result, the snow is melting fast. It’s incredible to see the day to day change as white is replaced with green. Still the Headwall is holding and I predict there will still be good skiing there for at least another week, maybe even two. So, those of you who haven’t fully replaced the bike for the skis, go get some 🙂 It’s still good!
